From the moment I met Monica, she felt like an old friend. She is warm, funny, sweet, and caring. I loved how she checked in with me a few times a week with a quick text to see how I was doing. And she really is available any hour of the day if you need support. During labor she was a calming reassuring presence, providing massage, a hand to squeeze, a sip of juice just when I needed it, and comforting words during panicky moments. She also took amazing photos of us during our labor and birthing experience, and beautiful newborn photos during her post partum home visit. You can tell that she loves what she does and how dedicated she is to providing support to mamas during pregnancy, labor and post partum. I would highly recommend Monica to any mama and would absolutely have her as my doula again if we have any more children.

Monica Wagner has been a part of my family’s life for about 10 years. She has always been there for us, and when I found out that she was a Doula I wanted her to be my Doula for my second child. My first child is 8 years old and I do wish she were a doula then. During my pregnancy she was full of useful information and tips. When I found out I was being induced into labor she helped me by giving me great options to look into. I didn't want to have to go through the Pitocin drip again and she told me about asking to have my water broken instead. I asked my Physician if that was possible and they did it! If it weren’t for Monica I would have never known what natural labor felt like. The whole time she was by our side. She was very caring, professional, and helpful. If I were to have another child I will absolutely have her there again. I highly recommend her to anyone who is pregnant! She is fantastic!

Monica was amazing during the birth of my son. She is knowledgeable ,strong and gentle. I was able to experience my birth without consistently worrying about what was happening around me. I knew if there was something important for me to know she would tell me. I knew that she was there to support me and help in any way she could. (Even if it just meant watching the monitors so I didn't have to). I felt empowered by having her by my side. I would recommend Monica for anyones birth and I know if I choose to have another baby I want her by my side.
