Mika was the peace and patience that I needed during pregnancy, labour & delivery.
When my baby was breech, with her expertise, Mika gave me all the tools to help baby turn, while staying calm and confident that baby’s birth was going to be perfect no matter how she came. During labour, Mika was on the ball, checking in as I went through early labour at home. At the hospital she helped to keep the atmosphere calm for me. When the doctor suggested certain interventions (breaking my waters and an episiotomy), Mika helped my husband and me weigh the options and make educated decisions that were best for us. She even helped us stick to our birth plan (which I had completely forgotten about during labour), which allowed for me to feel my daughter’s head crowning during delivery. Postpartum, Mika was reassuring as I struggled with initiating breastfeeding. She was full of resources and helped me find a lactation consultant, which was a huge help in the early days of breastfeeding. Needless to say, I can’t imagine my birth & early postnatal experience without Mika. She was a blessing to both my husband and me!
