Testimonial for Mary Ficek, CLD(CBI), CBC(CBI)

We heard of Mary from several friends who highly recommended her. We chose to have a home water birth with the Midwives Cooperative. I wanted a doula because this was our second child and not knowing what time we would have the baby, I wanted the support if my spouse had to tend to our 2 year old. I also wanted support if there was an emergency transpor. Little did I know...Mary was beyond great. I had 2 weeks of prodromal labor and was on an emotional ride.

Mary met with me several times and listened to me when I thought I was having contraction (And ended up just having more prodromal labor). I needed someone outside of my immediate family to listen to me, support me, and provide options. When my water broke in the middle of the night she was there. Since my first labor was only 8 hours she helped me figure out when we needed to call the midwives.

Even though I was tempted to just relax in my bathtub until the midwives came she encouraged me to try walking. This combine with counter pressure was just what my body needed. In just a few short hours we welcomed our big 9.5lb boy to the world. She was fantastic before, during and after birth.

Mary helped make our first meal and she visited us a few days after. We also used her for our placenta encapsulation and tincture. The turn around time was great and I highly recommend this option. This was the best gift I could have given to myself and our family. Her support, friendship, knowledge, and experience were beyond what we could have imagined.
