Here is what a client named Leigh has to say about working with Fiona:
Having Fiona be a part of our pregnancy and birth experience was pretty incredible. Her calm, knowing, engaged presence was so supportive as we navigated the different world views around pregnancy and birth preparation considerations. I so appreciated her way of sharing that helped make things seem more simple and heart-centered and her expertise in further researching things we spoke about to help us keep considering and learning. I felt like her voice was supporting in the outward conversation my body's wisdom and inner knowing which isn't always the easiest to translate into words. She felt really there for both me and my partner. She helped us have our own birth experience no matter the setting around us - it was like she was able to both join us in our own little world and also help expand that world to make more space for us amidst the hospital setting. And I loved that same steadiness of heart in the weeks following our little one's arrival. We are so so grateful to her and would very much recommend Fiona to be a part of your birthing journey.
Here is what a client named Marissa Valente Pacheco has to say about working with Shannon :
Since our baby's birth, I have been filled with joy, overwhelming support, and searching for a way to properly articulate the experience to others. In those communications one thing is always clear, neither my partner nor I can imagine what the experience would have been like without the incredible Shannon Mackey! Shannon takes her role as a doula very seriously. However, it is her friendly, inviting, and familiar demeanor that allows her to feel like family. She provides knowledge, insights, and a support person to check in with if questions arise or you need a friend to talk to. She supports all types of birth and truly allowed my partner and I to take the lead, while feeling like we had access to all her knowledge to lean in to. She helped us think about aspects of birth and labor that we had not thought of. When I went in for the "past due" ultrasound, my ob suggested an induction. It was then that my partner and I went to the hospital to begin this process. We had no idea we would be starting on a 54 hours process to meet our son. Shannon was prompt and available to discuss induction, my options, what it would look like, and how it compared to my birth plan. She provided information that was not given by medical professionals and allowed me to feel empowered. She showed up early in the induction/labor experience and stayed with us until the very end (even sleeping on the floor one night). She provided endless support, brought us food & tea, walked the halls, sang to us, explained medical jargon, advocated for us, and cried with us. In the middle of labor, I vividly remember her telling me a story. This is a story I now tell my son. To say that Shannon acted as our doula somehow feels like an understatement, we feel like she is family and will not experience a pregnancy, labor, or birth without her there. She truly was invaluable to our birth experience. We HIGHLY recommend Shannon Mackey for all aspects of family planning and support.
Here is what a client named Nora has to say about working with Natalie:
When we decided to work with Maine Doulas for the birth of our first child, we were looking forward to their help navigating labor and birth - something we didn't know much about! We got to know Natalie and Jessica through the prenatal visits, coming up with hopes around how we wanted the birth to unfold as well as setting realistic expectations, and frequently texting between.
While Natalie was in the room next door at the hospital during our birth, Jessica supported us through a very lengthy induced labor, with everything from counterpressure during my contractions to encouragement when deciding on epidural timing to taking special photos of our family immediately after birth. We are so grateful for everything she contributed to that long labor experience!
We have been working with Natalie and Johanna for overnight support and the comfort and ease that they bring our family is amazing! Navigating breastfeeding injuries, understanding if our daughter was gaining enough weight, improving our techniques for getting her back to sleep after night feeds, the list goes on... all this on top of the joy of a good night's sleep.
Everyone we've worked with from Maine Doulas has approached us with such warmth and knowledge and made a trying time for our family more manageable and supportive. We would recommend them to anyone!
