We found Megan through DoulaMatch.net and chose to meet with her to see if she was right for us. After the first meeting we knew we wanted megan with us for the journey we were about to take. Her price and services were made clear up front, both of which were very fair and more than worth it! We enjoyed having Megan over for a meeting before our son was born, and she certainly helped ease our anxiety. The real work began when we were admitted to the hospital to be induced. When we were ready for Megan, we called and she was by our bedside within 15 minutes, even though it was 5 in the morning. having Megan with us for the birth of our first child was life changing. She walked us and talked us through every single contraction. She helped me find the strength inside that I didn’t know I had. She helped me stay confident in my birth plan, and kept me on track through the pain of contractions. She was a calming and reassuring voice, And Im not sure I could have had such a successful experience without her. We will forever be grateful for everything Megan did for us before, during and after the birth of our son.

This women is amazing, I don't think I could have made it through labor without her. She made sure I had everything I needed to bring my little man into the world. Thank you so much!??

Megan was great I wasn't sure about using a doula but my wife wanted to try it. I'm glad I listened to my wife. She made the whole experience great and was there to help her and me through it. She is very knowledgeable and she listened to what my wife wanted and made sure that's how it went. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a great doula. Thank you Megan for being there with us!!!!

I had been thinking about hiring a doula when Megan and I met by chance through Facebook. We exchanged messages and decided to meet in person. Within the first few minutes of meeting I knew that I wanted to hire Megan for our upcoming birth. My husband was skeptical about it but went along with my plans. Wise man.

Megan and I communicated several times before the birth and she made sure to explain all the ways that she could support us during labor. She asked questions to get to know us and understand any concerns we had about the birth. She put my mind at ease with an answer to every question I had and even took the time to find resources for me on services that are outside of her scope.

When I went into labor Megan supported me over the phone and checked in  periodically to make sure I was doing well and let me know she was ready to come to me when I needed her.

When I finally decided to have her come over she arrived promptly and talked me through contractions, encouraging me with kind words and affirmations. She suggested different positions to help relieve pain. 

Megan went to the birth center with us and  helped not just myself but also my mom and husband who were there supporting me as well. She offered breaks to them when needed and gave them front row seats when desired. We talked and laughed together and when things got hard she held my hand, smoothed my forehead and reminded me that the pain was bringing our baby into the world. Her reassurance calmed my nerves and gave me strength. 

She managed to integrate seamlessly into my support team.

I have no doubt that had Megan not been at my birth the experience would have been much less pleasant. There is no better way to support a laboring woman than to have one person rubbing her back, another rubbing her feet and a third holding her hand!

Megan even made my husband a believer in the power of doulas!
