Testimonial for Martha Girard Wasserman

As soon as my husband and I met Martha,  it was an instant connection. We felt like she understood who we were and what we wanted. It was the easiest and best decision to hire her.

Martha was amazingly flexible with providing us prenatal support during COVID. We had Zoom meetings, texts, and calls! After every interaction with her, my husband and I left feeling assured in our decisions, prepared, and even more connected to each other and our baby. She asked questions we would have never though of and always worked to make us feel like we owned our birth. She helped me discover that my OBGYN was not on board with my birth plan and helped me find a midwife at 35 weeks pregnant!

When it was time to actually have the baby, my husband and I felt excited instead of afraid because Martha had made us feel like we knew what we were doing. Our birth did not go to our ideal plan, but it was possibly the best, most bonding experience of our lives. We felt confident and at peace with every decision we made, even when these decisions deviated from our ideal birth plan. Martha helped us through every decision and was always on our side.

In the process, she provided amazing physical, moral, and emotional support to my husband and myself. She wasn't just a person in the room; she was our teammate. She helped suggest positioning, gave words of encouragement, and helped us fully experience the birth of our daughter.

Even after our daughter was born (04/16/20), she continued and continues to support us.

It's abundantly clear that Martha isn't a doula for a living. She lives to be a doula. We hope she will forever be apart of our daughter's life because she helped us bring her into the world!

We will 100% be hiring her again for our next birth and recommend her without hesitation to absolutely anyone looking for a doula.
