Testimonial for Marta Barensfeld

Marta is an extremely kind and compassionate liason that will guide your birth experience to fit your needs. Having a doula sounded like a strange idea to me before my experience with Marta, she both listened and lead me and my husband through a process that was completly foreign to us and made us feel comfortable in doing so. She is knowledgeable and helpful and a great resource to have whether you're embarking on this journey for the first time or not. 

This was my first baby and I really didn't know what to expect. I had seen a couple of my friends go throught the process and had done some reading but it's really difficult to imagine how it's going to be and what you will need in the process. Marta met with us several tiems before the brth to walk us through the process and to go over the logistics and create a plan that would work for us. She went through breathing exercises and partner comfort techniques and helped us create a birth plan that would guide us through. When the day came Marta was right there with us, my husband called her when I went in to labor and she coached him over the phone and then met us at the hospital when we were admitted. Marta stayed with us throughout my 27 hours of labor and acted as a calming presence, coach, masseuse, advocate, DJ, mood-setter, and many more things I can't even thank her for. SHe stayed until after my baby was delivered and assisted with breastfeeding and latching as well.

Having a doula was a great decision for us as it makes the birth process so much more personal and understandable and I cant imagine having a douls that is more caring, comforting, and loving than Marta. Thank you!
