Client Testimonials for Mary Dale

Robin Stump

Mary was present with me for the birth of my son Jonathan.

She was a calming, gentle, and loving presence. She helped me to stay calm and was such a help when the contractions became very strong.

I remember her sweet, kind voice talking to me through the experience and it served to keep me focused and unafraid.

We have been friends since Jonathan's birth, and she did us the honor of being his Godmother. 

I will never forget Mary's care and love that day when he first came into our world.

As a Doula, I cannot think of another person who would be better than Mary with her gentle, loving presence.
