a little miracle

I had another sweet baby reunion last night with my March childbirth education patients. I so enjoy this time to meet their baby and hear about their "birth" day. Birth is so unpredictable. I have no ability to tell them how things are going to turn out for the. Will the baby be early, painfully late? Will she have a c-section or vaginal birth with no medications?

Last night one of my patients from class shared her story of having a premature boy at 32 weeks and spending time in the NICU at Pitt. To hear her story of intuitively knowing something wasn't right and acting upon it literally saved her child's life. Collectively we tried to encourage her and be a blessing.
I am so thankful for the opportunity to follow up with these women and allow them to share their story and their babies!


  1. I love these little follow-up reunion gatherings you do - what a blessing to mothers of new babies!!!

  2. Hey Marisa,
    I attended this reunion. I was so blessed to have you as my class teacher and all the knowledge you passed along. It was because of your teachings and encouragement and my determination and focus that I was able to have Tucker without any medicine and labored at home for most of the labor. I just want to say thank you so much and I would highly recommend you to anyone as a teacher and doula. I felt like you were there during my labor and delivery in spirit. Thanks, Genevieve Dozier
