Martha gave me the courage to be a rockstar in the delivery room! Even though my "birth plan" changed - I wanted an intervention free birth, that was not in the cards. Martha gave me encouragement to have my induction my way, and with my consent. Full of love and peace, she was a comfort througout my labor. She was there, by my and my husbands side for the entire lengthy labor process (during the begining of the pandemic!).
Prior to my hospital stay, she provided me with wisdom and educational material so that I was prepared to be in control, not my doctor, regarding choices in the delivery room. I felt so empowered, even though I was not having my "dream delivery".
Martha helped me with my second baby. My first, I felt like I was at the mercy of the medical establishment, however, with Martha, I knew that I was in charge.
Thank you so much Martha! I've been meaning to write this for a long while now! Almost 11 months, healthy and happy!
