“Meagan was a breath of fresh air right when we needed her! After going through a traumatic first delivery, I was looking for #2 to go much smoother. Meagan helped us by sharing natural methods of relaxation, and techniques to work through the pain. Her positive attitude and encouraging spirit inspired me to have a successful and healthy birth plan.”
