We are so grateful to have had Marta's presence and support at the birth of our daughter. We found her through a series of events and I truly believe she made the difference in us experiencing a beautiful and natural birth within a hospital setting. The meetings leading up to the birth were very informative and were a great way to get to know each other and to be comfortable together, both for myself and my husband. Marta was my biggest cheerleader during this phase, offer advice and support, lending books, and just generally checking in on how I was after going two weeks past the due date!
For the birth itself, Marta was a beautiful warm, calming, and supportive presence. Having her there to watch over gave me a sense that all was well. She would make suggestions on different positions or things to try, but really just knew what I needed before I even did!! She cut through the noise and distraction that I felt being in the hospital and really allowed me to lean on my husband and focus on bringing our baby into the world. She brought everything with her and even gave my her own sweater to wear! Marta was also incredibly helpful with ensuring skin to skin happened and assisting with a first latch.
We consider ourselves very lucky that Marta is part of our story and hope to continue to use her as we grow our family.
