I had the pleasure of having Mary as my doula for my fourth baby. This was my first experience trying for a birth without an epidural. I was nervous going in, but Mary was amazing at providing resources and answering all of my questions prior to the birth. During my actual experience, she was incredible at supporting me and helping me navigate changes we had to make along the way. She also really helped in advocating for me when there were disagreements with my doctor on how to proceed forward. She made me feel so comfortable and supported and helped me achieve the birth I wanted. Postpartum, she ensured I had additional resources for breastfeeding, pumping, and even helped come up with activities to keep my older kids occupied while solo parenting. Overall, I would recommend Mary and her services to any mama looking for an amazing birth experience.

Mary was absolutely amazing to work with. She provided constant support and answered all of my (many, many) questions without hesitation, and she always provided evidence based research to support her answers. She was flexible with meeting times and even ensured she had TWO backup doulas when I had to be induced earlier than planned, even though she was available within the hour! She helped us write our birth plans (Plans A, B, and C) and made sure to include all of our wishes. When the labor didn't go as expected, she was there to provide support to me and my family and to make sure the hospital staff respected my wishes. I cannot say enough good things about Mary, and I'm so glad she was with us throughout the pregnancy, during labor, immediately after the birth of our daughter (if it weren't a C-section, she would have been right there for the birth!), and postpartum. I highly, highly recommend her if you are looking to hire a doula.

My husband and I had the pleasure of having Mary as our birth Doula for my pregnancy and the delivery of my daughter, who was born in December 2021. I was so nervous and apprehensive about having someone I didn't know so involved, but she was so very helpful throughout the entire process, and she will forever be a part of our birth story!! Her calm and sweet spirit was definitely the cherry on top to our experience.

We cannot recommend Mary's doula services enough! In the past month since giving birth, we have talked quite a few times about how grateful we were to have Mary's support during our 26.5 hour labor & delivery. Mary met with us in our home three times prior to giving birth, and these meetings helped us to prepare our birth plan, practice coping techniques and set our expectations for the birthing process, amongst many other things. Mary has excellent communication, has an immense knowledge of resources for pre-birth, birth and post-birth, and she does a diligent job at helping to maintain a positive, calm and nurturing environment throughout it all. We had to transfer from the birthing center to the hospital during our labor process, and with Mary's help and guidance, we were able to successfully welcome our baby into the world with as few interventions as possible. We cannot recommend Mary and her services enough.
