My husband and I do not have any family in Florida. I knew we would be alone during our birthing journey and therefore I wanted a doula to help guide us. I am lucky enough to know Martha through a friend, and as my doula we also became friends. I planned every detail of what in my mind would be a beautiful, easy home birth, however the universe had something else in store for us. I had a c-section because I went over and the induction failed. There were many questions and decisions that I did not want to be faced with and make. Martha helped. She was there for the both of us through every step. She held my hand when I was sad and made me laugh when I was a little drugged. 😀 She took wonderful pictures of what I now believe was a beautiful birth, that made me a mother. I am forever grateful and happy that she was the one at my side.
