Rhonda Burch


I just wanted to sing the praises of Mary Callender. She was our Doula for the birth of our first child and Mary was just simply fantastic. We had a "pure" birth, no interventions whatsoever and I could not have done it without Mary. She was very helpful to me and my husband in preparing us for pure birth through education, pain management techniques and overall support of the process of child birth. Mary listened to our birth wishes and helped us fulfill our birth plan. If we have a second child she will be our Doula again!
