"Marsha assisted in my labor in August. It was my first baby and I needed all the help I could get! She arrived at my home and immediately jumped into work to help get me comfortable and helped me labor as long as possible at home. When we got to the birthing center she was non-stop in assisting with getting me fresh water, holding me, and doing whatever it took to encourage me through the rest of labor. She felt like part of the family and we are eternally grateful to her!!"
"I have to admit, I was somewhat skeptical of having a doula when my daughter told me she was going to have one. However, I can not say enough great things about Marsha. She turned me into a believer. Everyone should hire one and it should be her. She was sweet, patient and kind as well as full of knowledge. She tended to my daughter while she was in labor with my grandson. She helped my daughter with pain management technique and ensured the doctors gave her time to think through things and make informed decisions. She explained things when we didn't understand. Marsha ensured my daughters laboring wishes were always foremost. She was also great with the extended family, from the grandma's to be down to the little cousins. It was like she was a part of the family (But the calm one). After my precious grandson was born she even helped daughter with the nursing and post labor process. Thank you so much Marsha!! When the next grandchild comes we will absolutely be using your services again!"
"Marsha supported my husband and I during our delivery on August 18th. During our pre birth meetings she was extremely personable and respectful of our wishes. When it was go time, she supported both Matt and I as well as our family. Through our labor, she gave us a voice and reminded us of our wishes as doctors were telling us what they wanted. In the end, we had the labor we wanted with her support and guidance. Thank you Marsha!!"
"Marsha is one of the most honest, compassionate, and sweetest people you will ever meet! She is very intelligent, and kind natured! Having her there for the birth of my son back in 2012 was seriously God sent!! I don't know how I would have made it through my labor without her!!! She's so knowledgeable and passionate about what she does! Having her at your side will make your whole experience better, I know it did mine!!!"
"Marsha is absolutely amazing! We are just so in love and so very thankful for having Marsha in our lives and a part of our birth. My husband was not confident in the idea of having a doula, but now he swears it was one of the best decisions we ever made.
We had a very rollercoaster ride of a birth story, starting weeks before birth and even a couple weeks after birth- and Marsha was there every inch of the way. From the best moments to the worst moments, Marsha was the one and only person who really stood tall, strong and confident the entire time. She never once showed doubt or fear even through the scariest and most dramatic moments. She was truly our rock of support and comfort. We will never be able to express enough how thankful we are for her!
I promise, you will not regret having a doula. I promise, you will absolutely love Marsha!"
