Daylee Greene

Maritta is absolutely amazing. She's been my support for two births now, and I would have never had the healing, peaceful, incredible birth experiences that I did without her presence in my life and during my labors. She is FULL of information, advocates for mothers to do their own research and make decisions that they're comfortable with, and is supportive and encouraging along the way.

I had a very hard to impress partner with my first birth experience with Maritta, and he said that he really liked her and would welcome her at our next birth. That's the most impressive of compliments, seriously.

Maritta is wonderful and absolutely worth every penny. Hire her! You won't be sorry!
