“It is not only that we want to bring about an easy labor, without risking injury to the mother or the child; we must go further. We must understand that childbirth is fundamentally a spiritual, as well as a physical, achievement. The birth of a child is the ultimate perfection of human love.” ~Dr. Grantly Dick-Read, 1953
"Our delivery nurse just came in to say goodbye as we prep for discharge. she said she's been doing this since 1998 and mine was her most impressive. favorite labor/delivery of all these years. I credited you and she said you were one of the best doulas she has ever seen. This was the same nurse that doubted me from the start. She said she was proud of me and I said I was proud of me too!!! Words fall short when trying to express the gratitude Marc and I have for you around helping us achieve our perfect birth. You guidance and info over the past 9 months. Your support in the final days of pregnancy. Your amazing assistance and presence throughout labor and delivery. ALL PHENOMINAL. We are in love and enchanted with Lucy Anne. Thank you so much for helping us welcome her earthside!" - Love, Julie and Marc
"WHEN I WAS PREGNANT WITH MY SECOND SON, I TOOK MELYNDA'S CHILDBIRTH CLASSES (THIS WAS MY FIRST NATURAL BIRTH), AND RECEIVED AN ENDLESS AMOUNT OF ENCOURAGEMENT AND A WELLSPRING OF KNOWLEDGE THAT CANNOT BE REPLACED BY CONVENTIONAL CHILDBIRTH EDUCATION. SHE HAS HER THUMB ON THE HEARTBEAT OF THE FEMININE, RESUSCITATING THE POWER THAT IS DORMANT IN SO MANY OF US... SHE IS A BREATH OF FRESH AIR IN THE CITY OF JACKSONVILLE, AND HER HEART IS DEDICATED TO WALKING FAMILIES THROUGH THEIR BIRTH EXPERIENCE IN LOVE AND COURAGE." - JAMIE SATORI
