Testimonial Tuesday – Melanie

Testimonial Tuesday

Ever wonder what people are saying about Mercy and Comforts of Home Midwifery.  We are introducing a feature called Testimonial Tuesday.  Once a month, we will add a testimonial from women (or their husbands!), so you can see what other have to say about our services. Also you can find out more by going to our Birth Stories page.  All the stories were written by former clients.  – Mercy


Mercy was my midwife for my second child.  She’s fantastic.  Despite my baby being in a difficult position, she let my body do what it’s designed to do and I ended up pushing for only 10 minutes.  This was so different to my first birth experience where, with a similar positioned baby, I ended up in the hospital after pushing for close to 8 hours.

We have chosen Mercy for the birth of our 3rd baby too.  Although we have to travel over 2 hours to get to her, it’s well worth it for her knowledge, experience, and relaxed approach.

Spread the love
