Here is what a client named Hannah has to say about working with Marcia :
My husband and I chose to do a home birth for our second born. We knew we wanted to hire a doula and hit the jackpot with hiring Marcia. We wanted to have extra support for having a baby at home. She helped us make sure we were doing everything we could to physically and mentally prepare for the birth as well as making sure we had success getting started breastfeeding. The night our baby was born, Marcia showed up and immediately started to provide support to both my husband and me and made sure I was as comfortable as possible when things got intense. Our follow up appointments were important to my husband and I in our first few weeks postpartum. Would definitely recommend Marcia for your birth! She’s thoughtful, resourceful, and knows what to do to help make your birth experience a positive one.
Here is what a client named Bree Muehlbauer has to say about working with Charity:
Charity was a wonderful and needed part of our birth experience. From the beginning she made it clear that she was there to support both myself and my partner through the birth of our baby and after. She made sure to understand what I was hoping to get out of the experience and thoughtfully guided me to identify and articulate my birth preferences. She was calm, never judgemental, and kind. We don't have family in the area, and I knew I wanted another voice in the room, helping me advocate for my needs and goals. Ultimately my birth experience was everything I wanted it to be. I highly, highly recommend everyone hire a doula, especially first time parents. Charity has been in many more births and can help dispel some of the mystery and fear so you can approach the experience with peace and joy as much as possible.
