If some one had told me 5 years ago that I would give birth without medications, outside of a hospital, and in water, I would have told them they were insane. That is why I don’t even know where to start to thank you for the care provided for me during my pregnancy, labor and delivery. When I began investigating using a midwife for my delivery, my motivation was purely selfish, but the more I learned about the effects of medication on not only me, but my baby, the more seriously I took the decision that I had made. You and Amy guided me down that road- which was very scary at times since I knew no one else who had gone down the same path- with such kindness and gentleness and I know now that I could never give birth differently.

I know that all the compliments I receive on Lilah’s alertness and interactiveness are due to the instruction from you, Amy, and Mary. I wish that all women who have babies could have my experience, because I know no one who has had such an easy pregnancy or delivery. I owe a lot of that to you three.

I hope you enjoy this little gift- it certainly isn’t what I owe you for all you’ve given me, but I hope you like it. It came with a quote from St Augustine that said, “Every visible thing in this world is put in the charge of an angel.” Surely, you and Amy are angels of pregnant women and their babies. God bless you for your service to us and Him.
