Certifications

Nicole has a BSN and is an RN in the state of New York and Florida. She has been a Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator since October of 2014 and is pre-certified as a PD Labor Doula. Nicole has also attended LIDA's postpartum doula certification course in September of 2017.



Nicole was so attentive to me and my husband. She knew just what to say and how to say it to help me focus on what I needed to do during my labor and when my baby was born. I can not thank her enough for being able to come in on short notice for my primary doula. AND I couldn't believe how all the nurses knew her and were so excited that she was there with me during my delivery.

Nicole Casimir BSN, RN,

Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator, Pre-cert ProDoula Labor Doula

I met Nicole at a Childbirth Education Class so when I started having problems with my blood pressure (PIH) I contacted her for advice. She was able to answer my questions thoroughly AND was able to support me through my induction on such short notice. I was so surprised she was able to stay till the early morning hours to get the baby to breastfeed for the first time, it was so helpful. I was so greatful Nicole was able to be there for me when I needed her.
