I cannot say enough good things about Meghan! She was very knowledgeable and provided great information and resources for my husband and I to prepare for our VBAC. She was incredibly supportive and helped ease all my fears from my first traumatic birth. With her support, I felt empowered. I truly believe I couldn't have accomplished my VBAC without Meghan's presence during my labor. She has a calming sense about her that is so important during an anxious time. I very highly recommend Meghan for any type of birth.

I cannot say enough good things about Meghan! She was an amazing doula. Throughout my whole pregnancy she was on 24 hour call for me for any concerns I had! Even if I texted her at 2am she was always quick to respond with caring texts and important information. She was proactive about checking in on me. She equipped me with valuable information regarding my pregnancy that I wasn’t as aware of my previous pregnancy. She gave my husband and I great exercises to do at home to prepare myself for labor. She recommended seeing a chiropractor and it made such a difference in my pregnancy experience as well! I never felt like I was bothering her when I texted her! She gave me great recommendations of books to read to help equip me. She was so so caring about my preferences and did an amazing job sticking up for me at the hospital. She took wonderful pictures for us in the delivery room which was so so special! She made sure to always include my husband and help empower him to help me as I was having contractions. I appreciated that she is such a strong woman of faith and was able to related the things I was going through to the gospel and how what I was doing through my pregnancy and labor was all for God’s glory. I will use her for all of my pregnancies no question! She was such a blessing and I would recommend anyone looking for a doula to hire her because she was truly such a gift to my family! :)

I used Meghan for my first pregnancy. She was so full of knowledge and answered any questions I had about pregnancy and labor. She provided a lot of tools and resources for me to review before my labor, and they were very good at easing my mind. She was readily available and was always timely with her responses. She was wonderful to have during my labor, even though I was induced and used pain medication. Her emotional support was priceless.
