Felt empowered

As a labor and delivery nurse I knew exactly what kind of care I wanted and didn’t want for pregnancy and childbirth. Through my experience with working in hospitals and seeing many types of births I began to discover all of the options a woman has with birth. However, the thought of delivering out of hospital frightened me and my husband a bit. Two years before we found out we were expecting I began to research out-of-hospital births and found that it was exactly the kind of care I wanted for our family. I was blessed that my research for local midwives lead me to find Christy Martin. After much discussion my husband and I decided to call and meet with Christy to see if delivering out of the hospital would be for us. After meeting with her we fell in love and we began our journey to parenthood with Christy’s guidance. My husband and I throughly enjoyed our prenatal appointments as we felt like we were meeting with a family friend who cared deeply for us and our unborn child. I always left feeling empowered and more capable than I ever had in my entire life. She gave me confidence that my body was very capable to birth a healthy baby by preparing, educating myself and taking care of my body. She always gave us the facts and allowed us to make our own decisions. As a first time parents I can say that Christy truly helped mold us into the parents we are today. I received way more than just prenatal care with her and I will forever be grateful. In addition to receiving phenomenal prenatal care the care I received during my birth was wonderful as well. Although I tried really hard to not set expectations for my birth I naturally did. My birth far exceeded my expectations and the experience was completely surreal. Christy and Donnelynn were like angels by my side. They knew exactly what I needed without having to ask me. The whole experience was far beyond what I ever could have imagined because of my midwives and I’m truly blessed to have them in my life. When the time comes to expand our family we will absolutely choose Christy to be our midwife without any hesitation.
