Texas Spotlight - Hello Marsha!
My name is Marsha Bucanek and I am a born and raised Texan to the core. That means I love country music, the hill country and maybe most importantly, a beautiful plate full of BBQ. Wait, did I just throw all those stereotypes out at once? YEP, and I am okay with that. Aside from love for our lone star state, I have a huge passion for pregnancy, birth and helping to supportive women through both. That is what lead me into career as a birth worker.
I have chosen to support my community through comprehensive childbirth education and doula support. As a woman with two children of my own, I know these are some of our most vulnerable, exciting and often overwhelming times. But we are so fortunate to have this beautiful ability. It was through my doula work that I began to have friends and family share their stories of heartache and struggle to begin a family of their own. So, when the opportunity to carry for another woman showed itself, I felt called to be a part of her journey.
I won’t pretend my journey was perfect, but it has been one of the greatest accomplishments of my life. The sacrifice of time and energy I contributed to this once tiny embryo created from two amazing donors, has blossomed into a beautiful baby girl enjoying her life to the fullest with her proud mamma there to watch all of it. What a gift to know I helped in creating their joy.
My journey has increased my desire to serve this community ten fold, through my birth work. Now as well as being a childbirth educator and doula, I have the privilege of being an intake coordinator with Texas Surrogacy. I am so excited to be a part of helping our surrogates navigate this process and being their support along the way.
