"Our pregnancy ended sadly for us with a miscarriage, but we wouldn't have made it through without the support of MonaLisa. We are hopeful for our rainbow baby and we will ask for her support again very soon. You won't find anyone as personally invested as MonaLisa. She remembered all my appointments and would text me well wishes. She randomly checked on me and was always encouraging. I remember after working with her for 4-5 months she mentioned she had to meet another client at that time, and I was shocked -- she was so attentive to me that it hadn't even crossed my mind that I wasn't her ONLY client! The day we lost the heartbeat she came over, then went to the store and made dinner for the whole family. She held me while I cried. She gave me a massage and she even tried to give us back the deposit we had paid just 3 days prior. She offered to go to appointments with me, and to sit with my while I miscarried our baby. She was strong enough and understanding when I asked her to look at graphic pictures I desperately needed to show someone to understand what I was looking at. My miscarriage took 3 1/2 long, gut wrenching months. I waited for a natural expulsion, then took pills, and that still didn't work so I finally had a D&C. She honored my choices the entire time. When she didn't have an answer for me she sought one out. She has helped me find ways to heal and honor my child. On my last appointment to the doctor, while awaiting some potentially scary news, she just popped in on her way to drop her own child off at school just to give me a hug. She has been transparent about who she is and what she suggests, but she is also incredibly focused and oriented on what was ultimately important to us. She even was a faux counselor during a couple emotionally charged moments. She is funny, kind, passionate, and absolutely loves helping bring babies into this world by loving their mommas!"
"My experience was just amazing. Without the help I don't know how I would've done it. Going into labor my first was pretty scary and I didn't really know what to expect. This time with help it seemed so much easier, helping me take my mind off the pain and focusing on something else was a BIG help. Having and doing things such as the birth ball, the music, lights, massaging, and smells of scents helped a lot. I couldn't be more thankful to how everything turned out."
