Having Mollie as a doula was an amazing and eye opening experience. Going into having a doula was something I was very skeptical about and ended up choosing to move forward with one a week before my babies expected birth date. After meeting Mollie I was stoked to go through the experience with someone that had known so much about birth and could help in anyway that she could. I had an easy yet intense 3 day labor and Mollie was by my side the entire time pushing me through with her knowledge and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Honestly without Mollie my experience would’ve been tough, I appreciate her hard work and dedication and was so elated I chose to use Mollie.

Having Mollie along for the ride during our second pregnancy was a great experience. In our first meeting, Mollie immediately presented an encompassing knowledge in her calm demeanor, proving that she was a perfect match for us. Throughout our time together she patiently listened to all our questions (you do tend to forget things between births) and walked with us through the process of establishing a new birth plan. During labor, Mollie proved to be a vital part of our team. She was supportive and communicative every step of way. We can't thank her enough for all the care and empathy she showed us.

Mollie was an incredibly knowledgable and supportive doula. She was great with me and with my husband, and when our birth did not go quite as we had hoped, she helped us navigate it and come out on the other side. She has continued to help us process the birth and life as new parents. I would highly recommend Mollie as your doula if you are looking for a doula who will truly partner with you.

I was foruntate enough to have Mollie at the birth of my son. From the get go Mollie was professional, easy to communicate with, knowledeable and took the time to go over, cover and explain different aspects of the birthing process. We met twice before delivery and pre birth she checked up on me and asked me if I had any questions or concerns she could help with and also made note of any concerns or things I wanted to ensure happened or didn't happen at the hospital which I found helpful. Mollie helped with my birth plan and made sure to send me a copy too.

At the birth, Mollie was very hands on and was there for me every minute I needed her from 2am- 8pm- 18 hours..!

I felt more relaxed and at ease just by her presence. While I was in labor and in pain, it was super helpful to have her get me popsicles, explain any medical processes as your brain tends to not work that well when in pain and just be a general advocate for me, helping relay my wishes or remind me of my plan as well as help with positioning in labor and some massage, pressure.

Post delivery she checked up on me to see how I was feeling and even came to visit, where again she was super helpful around the house in such a delicate time.. it was nice to have her presence.

I highly recommend Mollie as Doula and would without a doubt use her again! I am grateful to have had her participate in the beatiful journey to Motherhood!
