Testimonial for Maris James, CD (DTI), CBE, CBC

My experience with Maris was wonderful from start to finish. She was recommended to be by a friend. From our initial conversation on the phone I got the feeling that she had a lot of experience and I was confident about moving forward to meet with her.

During our first meeting Maris gave me a chance to express my needs and concerns and then she provided thoughtful ideas and a plan to move forward. My major needs were mental and physical support during the the weeks  leading up to the birth of my second baby. Right away, after our first conversation, a lot of my anxiety was lifted. This was very important to me, since it gave me a chance to enjoy the last weeks and rest before the due date. 

When I went into labor, Maris was very responsive right away and continued to stay in contact with me ( the labor progressed very quickly). She came over and we took an Uber to the hospital together. My contractions were strong and I am so grateful that Maris was next to me. She knew exactly what to say and the pressure points made the contractions more bearable.

In the hospital things progressed very fast and Maris helped me and my family make decisions. When it was time to push there were many people around me giving me different directions, but Maris helped to keep me calm. I was so grateful to have her by my side. I think without her it would be a lot more painful and traumatic.
