Our wonderful experience
My daughter and I wanted to thank you so much for being so wonderful to us all. You really gave us a very special and unique experience. With much love. K. D. 2017
Thank you for your care, compassion and friendship these past few months. Your support meant a lot to me and helped me stay calm and confident through the pregnancy. I also appreciate your work to ensure I had good alternative options, if - when - labor took a turn for the worse. Even though I did not get the birth I dreamed off, my son's birth was still healing on many levels and I am grateful you were there for me throughout labor and delivery. Thank you for everything.

Thank you for your knowledge and guidance bringing our son into this world. Because of you his journey into the physical world was more of a gift instead of a trauma. This is very important to the future generations of indigenous babies. For your contribution of returning physically, mentally and spiritually healthy babies we love you very much. S.CL. 2017

Thank you for all your help through the tough times and the beautiful! It is such an important work that you do and we are so grateful. Your love for what you do really shines through. S.P. 2017
Thank you so much for your support throughout this journey. You gave me the confidence to choose what I felt was best and to find peace in my decision. You helped me enjoy the ride according to my daughter's plan. You helped me through the hard post partum times and I am so thankful for you continuous guidance. Your the best and I hope to always stay in touch. L.F. 2015
We cannot thank you enough for the love and care you have poured into us throughout this pregnancy and birth. Thank you for helping us bring our surprise baby boy into the world in such a calm, loving manner, despite his wild and rapid entrance. We appreciate all that you do and all that you are. C.B. 2016
My husband and I had such a magical experience at the La Luna birthing center. It was so relaxed, warm, supportive and inviting!!!
We got there a few hours before I went into my last stage of labor and we were invited to just relax on the bed, use the sling and yoga ball as needed for contractions. We brought our small speaker system and Paula and Christa (midwives) let us do whatever we wanted- encouraging us to make ourselves at home. We had a playlist of our favorite music going, we lit candles and had essential oils diffusing. It was so lovely!
There's a fantastic vegan restaurant close and my husband went for some yummy smoothies and wraps that we enjoyed and then used their fridge to store for later. I was able to use the different labor equipment... It was a special alone and relaxing time for us (away from our toddler) while we prepared and aligned ourselves to receive our second son into the world.
After a few hours I got in the birthing tub - where less than 2 hrs later we birthed our son.
It was such a fabulous natural labor, I had no idea it could be so beautiful!!! The midwives were like angels just there to help as much as I wanted, they allowed me to flow with whatever I was feeling and never once were pushy or demanding. They just let me flow with what I felt naturally and my husband was in the tub with me - together we took each step (just how we wanted). I remember the positive words of the midwives encouraging and loving me while I was in transition and didn't think I would make it. I also remember asking for ice to chew and had a cold towel on my neck (I'm hot blooded and ice just helps me so much) They were instantly on anything I felt I needed and were so gentle and kind at each juncture.
After having our beautiful son around 11pm they graciously let us take in all the sacred moments and just lovingly served us-out of the tub, nursing, getting into bed, taking a shower...they were never pushy or demanding (like I had experienced in the hospital with my first birth) they graciously flowed with what we desired for our little family and the flow of our sacred space.
La Luna is such a magical place...it is forever sacred to me now. We spent the night with our precious little love and left the next morning. It was so relaxed and in the flow of our spirits. I can't speak more highly of this place and the midwives that create such a sacred space for us. A place that cherishes and honors each birthing experience. M. D. 2015
