Testimonial for Madeline Whittaker

Maddie was amazing! She was warm, kind, and a great communicator. We found the support/resources she provided to be exactly what we needed to prepare for labor, delivery, and life as parents! 

We matched up with A Mother's Perspective / Maddie after a few weeks of searching for a doula. My midwife recommended AMP and we were able to connect early on in my third trimester. We had a couple of phone calls and two prenatal home visits. We found Maddie to be a helpful voice of reason as my due date neared-- especially with the pandemic's lingering hold on hospitals and delta variant infections on the rise. She assured us that doulas were allowed as additional support visitors and, when my labor started unexpectedly (of course) and with a bang in the middle of the night, she was a great guide through whatever stage of labor I was in (honestly, it's just a painful blur). Maddie reminded us of the tools we had and encouraged us to put them into practice. She also SPED to the hospital when it came time for me to check in and brought a positive burst of energy right when I needed it. 

While it's very lucky that many of my (natural) preferencs aligned with Maddie's own preferences and experiences, I know she would have been supportive of any parents' choices. She asked questions that we hadn't considered when it came to preparing for labor, delivery, and parenthood (childcare, pediatricians, and meal planning) that helped us begin a lot of important conversations as a couple and family. Maddie was always just a text away and I relied on her heavily in the last few weeks of my pregnancy and first weeks of motherhood. She even brought us homemade cookies at our postnatal visit. Maddie is a wonderful doula and human being. We can't recommend her or AMP enough!
