Maria is what made our birth a miracle. She is so kind, so curious, so disarming. In the most challenging moments, it was as if she always knew what to do in an attuned, and often cheerful way. She is clearly one of those rare people who have found her calling and relishes all the moments of birth. From cookies at post-partum visits, to genuinely fun Zoom sessions, I wish we could bottle her up and bring her to every birth we ever have. Hard to describe how blessed I feel as a partner to have had Maria care for my wife, child, and me on each step of the way. The world needs a hundred million Marias.
