My name is Tricia and I am a mother of two young boys (ages 2.5 and 5.5) in NYC, both born at home, each of them the day after Thanksgiving, practically in the same spot, almost exactly three years apart!!! Marcy was my home birth midwife for both of these births. My first labor was 36 hours and my second was only four. I feel certain that a huge part of why I look back so positively on that time of my life is because of the care I received from Marcy during my pregnancies, during the labors and the guidance she provided afterwards as well. She listened to me, respected my desires, offered really fair advice and offered all the options. During my labors, there were times I felt I would not be able to go on or progress…she never rushed me or was afraid. She was calm, assured, positive and firm. She is serious, supremely knowledgable and instinctive. We trusted her completely. We knew we were in good hands and we were. I feel so grateful for her patience, for helping me to find my strength and to support me in what was the most challenging (but rewarding) experiences in my whole life. I have zero hesitations recommending Marcy to any expectant mother. She has become a trusted friend and supporter and I love her as a pivotal person in my life!
