My experience with Mercy was wonderful!

She is so gentle and understanding, yet strong enough to stand the long hours, the stressful moments, and all the while keeping her loving demeanor.

I was very overdue with my first child and had a couple episodes of false labor. One in particular lasted for 14 hrs+, and I remember my midwife finally telling me to try and rest, and sure enough, as soon as I woke up,  the labor stopped and there was no baby. I was so emotionally overcome and physically exhausted, and I remember Mercy coming and just holding my hand telling me that it was okay. Words so simple, but what I just needed to hear. 

I cant wait to work with her in the future!

Mercy recently attended the birth of my son Isaiah. I would recomend anyone that wants to have a home birth would be open to allowing a doula to be present. mercy was there to hold my hand when my husband rubbed my back. Her soft voice calmed me and allowed me to get deep breaths to the baby while the midwife checked babies heartbeat . I was able to have a wonderful blessed experince and I appreciate everyone for coming to share it with me. 

                                                                                    thank you
