Mariah was very professional, knowledgeable and enthusiastic throughout the pregnancy, labor, and post-partum time. She was available to me through phone, email, or text anytime I needed to reach out to her, and always got right back with the information, reassurance, or encouragement I was looking for. She is a great source of information regarding things I felt impacted my pregnancy and labor choices, providing me with a variety of information that allowed me to make the most relevant choices on my own (Use your BRAIN!). Mariah was confidant, warm and down to earth. She made it easy for my husband and I to voice concerns and ask specific questions. When I went into labor and called her (at 3am!), Mariah showed up without delay and stayed with us for the 14 hour labor, helping both of us as needed. She gave helpful techniques and support to help with progression and discomfort. The atmosphere she helped maintain was peaceful and supportive, communicating with the midwife and we really felt everything was in full support of our home birth experience. Our labor was a positive, peaceful experience with Mariah’s presence. She visited a couple weeks after the birth to check in and offer more support and feedback. We both agree that not only will we have a doula for our next birth experience, but Mariah is our only choice. Katy M.
