I cannot recommend Mary Beth highly enough. She was such a calming and reassuring presence, full of knowledge to empower my husband and myself, and anticipating all of my needs. Her care and connection before and after the birth was invaluable. I am forever grateful that she was a part of my birth team and we will be hiring her again for our next birth.

I really wanted my 2nd birth to be unmedicated and to have a more positive experience than I had with my first child. I decided to hire a doula so I could feel like I had an advocate, to help me cope with the pain, and to suggest techniques and ideas for labor that I may not have thought of, and Mary Beth provided all these things for me! She worked well in the delivery room with my husband and was a very calming presence that we both appreciated. I definitely recommend her!

As the spouse, I found it incredibly helpful to have Mary Beth as part of our support team. She has an incredibly calming presence and she always seemed to be one step ahead in anticipating what was needed. This really helped set my mind at ease and helped me know how to be there for my wife. We couldn't  have been more pleased or more thankful.
