Testimonial for Mirian Marques

My experience with Mirian was amazing . She was kind, knowledgeable, and extremely organized. I went to prenatal classes but found it redundant as there wasn't anything that I hadn't already learned from Mirian in those classes.When I went into early labor she was there to give me calm guidance. At the hospital she not only helped me with my pain relief but she helped my husband to feel as though he was doing a good job when he was not able to do much to help me. I ended up having an absolutely beautiful birth. Mirian fed me drinks of water, she turned my music on for me, and she reminded me of things in my birth plan which contributed to me taking control of my experience. Mirian has three kids of which she had three different experiences herself. I felt very supported in my decision to try for a natural birth and very supported in my decision in the moment to get an epidural. The epidural took all my pain away and much of my birth was me just laying in a bed listening to my music. When it came time to push after 5 hours of the most calm labor, it was only pressure and not pain. She empowered me to make my own decisions and to take control of my birth. It ended up being such an easy birth that by the end of it I said I could do it all again tomorrow. Unbelievable! It IS possible ladies! She supported me through the entire birth, she took pictures at my request, and when she was not needed she stayed quietly in the background in order to preserve experience for my husband and I. I can't imagine how my birth would've went without her. She was such a positive force and to this day remains a good friend. Another thing I loved about Mirians services is that she did more visits than most doulas with 3 prenatal and 2 postpartum. I lots of support postpartum and did not need the 2nd visit right away so she suggested that she come at 6 months to help me with baby's transition to solid foods. I recommend her to anyone seeking a doula. She is the best of the best
