Sara Fisher

Mirna is-an INCREDIBLE doula. She was there for the birth of my first & I had to have her again for my second baby. Mirna is intuitive, very calm, and will even give you foot massages-which is GREAT at helping a laboring momma focus mentally. :) She's so encouraging throughout every stage of labor, you'll want her as your doula to get through every contraction, every weak point, every time you tell yourself you're not sure if you can do this...Mirna is there to cheer you on, and to affirm to you that YOU CAN. She'll also give your husband pointers on how to help during contractions which was awesome! You will discover Mirna has all the great qualities an exceptional doula has, love that woman :)

Mirna was a calm, encouraging and an experienced presence at my first two sons births. When one is in labor and delivering a baby there are things that a mom may forget to do or forget we have choices and we do not have to follow typical hospital protocol if it doesn't feel right. She helped me remember the birth is about me and baby and she advocated for our needs. She kept me informed every step of the way during labor and delivery. And even once my boys were born she stayed to help and answer any questions I had even with nursing. She's a tough little cookie and we would be glad to have her at our next baby delivery!
