Testimonial Tuesday – Nathalie

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

 

“This is our second pregnancy and home birth with Mercy, and we couldn’t be happier.

From the start, Mercy and her student midwives have been great at listening and making sure that everything goes smoothly… from nutrition suggestions throughout pregnancy, to recommendations for postpartum healing. We all felt truly taken care of!

Aside from the amazing hands-on support and check-ins along the way, when it comes time for the birth Mercy is the calmest and most confident person that you want by your side.

The same care and listening happens throughout the birth, and I was able to labor comfortably at home in my preferred environment. I got to hold my baby and breastfeed shortly after giving birth, and that helped with bonding immensely.

I also loved that Mercy was quick to remind me that my body knows what it’s doing, and as a result, both of my births were fairly quick and painless.

If you’re looking for a midwife with a lot of experience, who listens to her clients but also tells them when they need to improve their self-care or nutrition… then Mercy and Comforts of Home Midwifery are the way to go.” -Nathalie Lussier
