“As a woman in my forties, bearing my first child, I could vividly recollect a plethora of nightmarish stories of my friend’s childbirths. I truly believed that many of these horrific experiences could have been prevented with a little knowledge and an experienced advocate for the mother. I instantly felt reassured when I first met Mari – and I was not wrong. Mari’s primary objective was aligned with mine – ensuring that I had the best delivery possible. She takes the time to listen and understand your choices and preferences, she is supportive in any and all decisions, leaving her own biases aside. I knew I wanted to deliver as naturally as possible, but I also understood that deliveries don’t always follow one’s ideal birth plan. In any case, I wanted to be in control of the decision making process in the delivery room. With that said, Mari was always on my side, offering support, reassuring me in my choices, and assisting in relaying my wishes to the multitude of nurses I met during my delivery period. Mari created an atmosphere of genuine warmth, caring and well-being. She is skilled and knowledgeable in all aspects of the delivery process. I am happy to say that I had the best delivery possible, with special thanks to Mari! Post-partum, Mari continued to provide comfort and support. I highly recommend Mari as a doula!”
