Martha Jansenberger

I worked with Luca for the birth of my daughter in 2016.  Luca was incredibly caring and supportive throughout the process.  I am a queer woman with a history of sexual trauma, and Luca worked with me to establish my needs around safety and consent through the pregnancy and birth. As someone with no familial support, Luca's work was fundamental to my positive birthing experience.  She stood by me for the 10 days my daughter spent in the NICU, checking in regularly and following up for weeks after her birth.  Luca is friendly, kind, and walks through life with a delightful sense of curiousity that is both contagious and inspiring.  I hope that anyone giving birth has a Luca by their side, cheering them on and supporting them through the difficulty moments.
