Lucy was present for the birth of my first child at a birth center. I went into prodromal labor about 2 days before "the real thing" began but because it was my first experience, I didn't understand why my contractions weren't progressing me into active labor. Lucy was great at responding to all my texts during this confusing time and she was the first one to mention the words "prodromal labor" and make suggestions for how to deal with it. When I finally moved into active labor, Lucy was great at letting us identify how and when we needed her to be with us. When we asked her to meet us at the birth center, she ended up staying with us for the entire labor, which lasted about 17 hours. She also stayed for about an hour after the birth to assist with helping me breastfeed that first time and answer any last questions we had. When we went home she was still helping connect me to resources when I had questions about my daughter's tongue tie.

During my labor, Lucy was a very strong and calming support to me as I struggled to maintain my energy and positivity during the last few hours. Having her massage my lower back and be present with me during my contractions gave me so much comfort and made me feel incredibly supported. Lucy would also make suggestions for new labor positions when my body would stall or slow in the labor process and she worked closely with my midwife team to care for and advocate for me. She also provided support to my husband by giving him some much needed break time during the labor so he could be more present and involved for the pushing phase.

Lucy was such a blessing to have at the birth of my daughter and I can't thank her enough for her sincere dedication to me, my husband, and our beautiful baby girl!
