My husband and I met with a number of doulas prior to making the decision to work with Mariah. We felt that she was the best fit for us personally and we liked her sense of humor! I was extremely nervous about the labor and birth so having a doula that could be calming and confident was the most important thing for me. I was scheduled to be induced so Mariah met us at the hospital a few hours after we were admitted. She talked me through decisions about medical interventions and really made me feel at ease with the process. She was no nonsense and my advocate during the whole process, including supporting my mom and husband while they were present. I ended up with back labor and she was able to apply counter pressure that got me through some really rough contractions. I even got an amazing massage from her partner that was wonderful. I felt that Mariah knew when to step in or step back. I'd absolutely have her again for our next baby. Thank you for helping me deliver our beautiful baby boy!
