My labor was extremely blessed by Morgan's presence and services! She gave great physical support by offering message and counter pressure through my contractions, assisted with keeping me in optimal positions, and anticipated my needs which freed me up to stay focused and relaxed. She also gave spiritual comfort by praying and reminding me of my birthing affirmations. She remained flexible and comforting even when things did not go according to plan. Morgan is a natural caregiver and an excellent doula. I highly recommend her to any expecting mother!
Words cannot describe what a blessing it was to have Morgan as our Doula! This was our first child and we appreciate all the wisdom and encouragement Morgan shared with us, even after finding out she was pregnant herself! She went above and beyond to have a backup doula just in case her pregnancy might have prevented her being there on the day of labor. We are grateful that she was feeling well enough to be a part of the birth of our baby boy! Amazing right!!!
We loved each meeting we had with Morgan where we discussed how I was feeling, I was free to ask any questions and if she didn’t have the answer she went looking for it, anything my midwife might have mentioned, and my husband asked any questions he had. She was always very kind and supportive of my wishes for my birth!
We seriously don’t know what we have done without her on the day of delivery! The AC in my room was broken so Morgan kept ice water rags on me keeping me cool while my husband applied counter pressure. She prayed with us when it all started, and was a wonderful go between for us and our family! She made suggestions throughout labor to keep things progressing and me comfortable, she reminded me of things to keep my body relaxed, and provided words of encouragement! We asked her to take pictures of the special moment and she got some amazing shots!
After our boy was born she was willing to come by and check in on us and we still keep in touch from time to time!
We really hold Morgan in high regards and truly appreciate her and the gift God has given her to support and encourage women.
What a blessing it was to have Morgan at the birth of our daughter! We used her for our second childbirth, having not used a doula the first time around. What a great privilege it is to use a doula, and especially Morgan! She is so calm and maybe sober is a good word? She seems to know exactly when she can laugh with you and when to just be quiet. She is the best kind of coach and can be strong when you need it (if you want it) without being overbearing.
I remember being worried that having a doula would annoy me ;) But Morgan was the perfect person to have around. She really wants to help you meet the goals that YOU want and not a picture of how she thinks a birth should go. My husband especially appreciated having her and she helped him feel more confident in his role as the husband and father and birth partner.
I think all doulas probably have good tools to help you labor, but I recommending choosing Morgan for one who will truly care for you and your baby. Her love for babies and LIFE is so evident and her joyful spirit and personality is what you need in someone who will be spending hours with you while you are in pain and uncomfortable during labor. I cannot recommend her enough.
We love Morgan so much! We had a doula with our first birth and knew that it was an important part of our birth plan the second time around. Morgan was referred to us by a friend and when we interviewed her we felt comfortable right away! I loved how she paid attention to my husband and respected him as a very important part of the labor process. He felt comfortable enough to share his ideas and memories about our last birth story with her, and that was so essential to me! I hadn't gone into labor on my own before, and I loved being able to call and text Morgan when I was having contractions. She helped me stay calm and reminded me of each step, and most importantly, told me to rest! During labor, I was so thankful Morgan was by our side. She was so calm, quiet, and gentle. She showed my husband just where to rub my back during contractions, held my hand, prayed and read Scripture with us. She was a gentle hand to hold and a calm, empowering voice reminding me of everything I had practiced for that moment. The end of my labor came really fast and by paying careful attention to me, Morgan knew just when to call the nurse. More than once during my pregnancy and labor I was SO glad we had chosen Morgan to be our doula! Her professional experience and her genuine, loving nature were invaluable to us, and we'll always be grateful for the role she played in bringing our daughter into the world.
I knew I wanted to have a pain medication free labor, but I was absolutely terrified of doing it. However, hiring Morgan was one of the best things that I could have ever done for my labor experience. Not only did she help me accomplish my goal of a pain medication free labor, but she was a constant source of encouragement when everything else wasn't going my way. She never got discouraged and always moved forward positively and kindly. When things got tough, she prayed, when our son was born, she rejoiced with us. Morgan was also invaluable to my husband as a first-time dad when he had questions about the labor process. I absolutely cannot say enough beautiful and wonderful things about how servant hearted Morgan is when it comes to birth. I am so thankful for the experience of having Morgan with us and will definitely be rehiring her if the Lord blesses us with more children.
Morgan saw us through a challenging delivery process! Though my delivery ended in a C-section, she was in active coaching mode with us for over 10 hours. As I tried to deliver naturally, she worked very well with my husband. She just seemed to know when to take a more active role in coaching, and when to step back to allow my husband and I to work together. Even though delivery is a very private and personal family experience, we felt completely at ease having Morgan by our side! She was also there for me before the delivery, checking in to make sure things were okay, and even there when I had questions in the middle of the night. We highly recommend Morgan to others for a very wonderful birth experience!
