From the first appointment at 8 weeks pregnant, to my labor and delivery, I had nothing but wonderful experiences with Monica. She made herself 100% available during appointments, taking as much time as I needed to answer questions and explaining procedures and the development of my baby. During labor she was there supporting me the entire time, providing suggestions and encouragement to help make my labor and delivery everything that I'd hoped it would be. Since my labor, my husband has joked that he's glad we didn't spend the money on a doula, because Monica was so helpful that they would have been unnecessary! A birthing woman puts a lot of faith in the practitioner they choose to delivery their baby, and in putting that faith in Monica, I made the best decision and now have a wonderful experience to always remember.
