“I hired meg from Bella Luna Birth Services to be my Doula for the birth of my third son. I didn't have the experiences I wanted with my first two children so I decided to hire a Doula. From the moment I met Meg I felt a positive connection and I knew she was the perfect person to be present at my birth. She always responded to my calls and texts in a timely manner even for the silliest questions. This gave me a sense of comfort that I had someone to communicate with that understood. My son was born very quickly Meg had just arrived to the hospital in time for his birth. After his birth she was a detrimental part of my healing. She made sure I (the mom) was being taken care of including a bath and food in my stomach. In the past with my other two children after they were born everything became about them which was great but I had just given birth to them I needed things myself. Meg ensured I had what I needed and felt validated for everything I was feeling. I am forever grateful for her role in my recovery from giving birth. Far to often mothers don't take care of themselves especially in the post partum period. I am thankfully that she assisted me in taking care of myself and taught me that I should make myself a priority.”

"Hello my name is Qiah Baxter. I delivered my son at home in a birthing pool on May 8th. Meg was my midwife. My overall experience with her and her assistant Kiki was amazing. They are super easy to work with and easy to have a connection with. Stress and being worried didn’t overwhelm me through my experience either. Both helped me stay calm, walked me through the whole process from when my water broke to the time my son was born even after they still checked on me and my son, they gave me comfort through my contractions, and made sure my baby and I were ok. Any questions I had, they answered and made me even more excited and confident in giving birth at home. They supported me in my wants and needs and recognised them right away making it easier for me to focus on myself and my baby. I didn't feel out of place for my decisions and was comfortable trusting them and their instructions before, during, and after birth. I hope to work with them both again for my next child and I have definitely recommended both to other moms thinking about or wanting to do a at home birth. I am confident that they will do what they have to to make sure that the mother and baby are doing just fine. Thank you Meg and Kiki for one being apart of my son's birth and taking care of me the whole time. “
