Molly consistently made me feel connected to her, my birth, and myself. She provided trust, security, and comfort. She was on my side and by my side every step of the way.

Through the birth preparation Molly was tender, supportive, and a constant friend. She helped guide decisions by talking them through and providing knowledge and resources, but always followed my lead and supported my choices. Molly was also inclusive of my husband every step of the way helping him to be confident and ready, which made our birth experience even more meaningful.

In the birthing room Molly had a strong presence despite her gentle demeanor. She advocated for me every step of the way making sure I was fully informed, had control, and was comfortable. She collaborated and was amiable with the medical team, but was never afraid to step in to take time to check what felt right for me or remind them of the birth plan. She was also the reason my water was always full, my hair was pulled back, I had everything I needed, and the beautiful pictures to remember the experience. 

While Molly brings all of this care, compassion, and education to the experience her greatest gift was giving me the confidence to trust my birth and trust myself. She empowered me to embrace my instincts and believe in my abilities as a mother. She helped me reframe birth from something scary into something beautiful.

I cannot express enough gratitude for Molly and the invaluable role she played in my birth journey. I have complete confidence in her and will undoubtedly be calling on her for support in all my future births.

Molly was such a pivotal part of the birth experience of our first baby. Her meetings prior to our birth were so helpful and full of information for us new parents. She did a great job making my husband feel included and supported for his role in the birth as well. As my pregnancy progressed, complications arose, and Molly helped us understand the risks and benefits of all of the medical interventions as well as provided emotional support when it felt my birth plan was no longer in my control.  During my labor she continued to suggest positions and techniques to help the labor progress. Molly empowered me to feel comfortable advocating for myself in a hospital setting and I am so proud of how my daughters birth unfolded.  I would absolutely reccomend Molly as a doula and would have not had the same birth experience without her compassion, knowledge and support.

Working with Molly was one of the best decisions I could've made in my pregnancy journey and I will eternally be grateful our paths crossed. From the moment I met her, I felt a true connection and a pure willingness to get to know me and my desires around my birth. She became my safe space helping me through this process and letting me lean on her when needed. I felt safe enough to be vulnerable and comfortable opening up to her, sharing my fears with her, and my questions and dreams. I admired how knowledgeable she was and how supportive she was in any and all decisions I made. At first, I thought I was hiring someone to advocate for me and be my voice, when in reality I needed to be my own advocate. Molly gently gave me the courage to seek that within myself and I emerged better because of it. While complications and difficulty came with my birth, I felt strong enough to speak up for myself and because of that I walked away from a birth that didn't go quite as intended nor planned with grace knowing I did the best I could have given all the circumstances. One moment I'll hold close to my heart was when I was in the throes of my birth and my eyes closed, someone gently and loving grasped my hand to help me through the moment. Knowing my husband had been holding my hands, I had assumed it was him, but after a moment realized it was Molly. She grasped my hand so lovingly I could hardly tell the difference. Again, one of the best decisions choosing to work with such a passionate individual and I hope to one day work with her again! Thank you so much, Molly!

We love Molly! Molly was such a a helpful resource and friend during my pregnancy and helped me immensely to have my dream birth. During my pregnancy I was told by my provider I would need to be induced, which I knew would most likely lead to many other interventions. I began mourning my birth before it ever happened and I left all my appointments sad and upset. Molly was always just a phone call away to listen and provide resources to help me make my own decisions. With Molly's support I realized I didn't need to give up on my birth goals, and that at 35 weeks it wasn't too late to find a provider that could help me have the birth I desired. I know without Molly I would have been left with many regrets about my pregnancy and birth, and I am so so happy I chose to invest in having her as part of my birth journey. Thank you Molly for everything ?? We love you!

Where do I even begin? As a FTM and birth nerd, finding the right doula was so important to me and our birth experience. From the moment I met Molly, I knew we'd be fast friends! Her knowledge, passion and compassion are so helpful and encouraging - she really made us feel prepared. Although our birth didn't go as planned, Molly was still there every step of the way providing amazing support and even a hand to hold. If you're looking for a doula, and one that truly believes in birth autonomy and the power and spirit of a woman's body in birth, then Molly is just who you are looking for!

Molly is wonderful! After an emergency c-section with my first child that left me with a lot of trauma and fear surrounding my second, I knew I wanted to add a doula to the team for some additional support. I especially appreciated Molly’s trauma-informed approach/background and knew she would be a valuable asset with this delivery. I desperately wanted to try for a VBAC and she was fully supportive of that and tailored the prenatal visits to help my husband and I prepare, as well as offer space and conversation to more fully process my first experience. As complications began to pop up towards the end of my pregnancy (at least as far as my doctor was concerned) she was always great about checking in and pointing me to resources to help me have more informed conversations with my doctor. Ultimately, I ended up having a c-section, which is not at all what I had wanted, but she was still there for me, both at the delivery and also in helping me to process and grieve the unexpected change of plans. She believed in me even when I had doubts and helped me to feel more in control of things this time around and better advocate for myself. Although it was far from the birth experience I had hoped/worked for, it was certainly a more positive experience than my first. From prenatal to postpartum, Molly was great the whole time and I greatly appreciate having had her on this journey with me and my family!
