Where do I begin? My experience as a Parenting Cove member and with Miatheresa as my doula/birth educator was amazing! As a first time mom-to-be, I didn’t know what to expect. I didn’t know how to feel. I was an entangled ball of mixed emotions; feeling excited, nervous, hysterically hormonal, but most of all confused. I didn’t know what to expect on this journey but having Miatheresa by my side made the world of difference.

In the beginning of our journey, Miatheresa assessed my feelings and my wants, she started to gauge her understanding of who I was and what was most important for me to know, understand, and receive support in as a first-time mother to be. After this assessment, she prepared a small package of goodies that helped me get excited about my pregnancy journey. From our conversations, Miatheresa knew that I was extremely nervous; anxiously waiting for the next doctor’s appointment to come before I could hear my baby‘s heartbeat. To alleviate some of this anxiousness, Miatheresa got me a small baby heart monitor that I was able to use to hear my baby‘s heartbeat on a daily basis. This small gift was the most precious gift given to me through my journey.
