Testimonial for Mary Skinner

Mary is such a light and her presence is so supportive! We crossed paths toward the end of my third trimester and I just knew I wanted to have her be a part of my second birth experience. She really helped settle any worries my husband and I had going into a natural/unmedicated birth. From the abundance of knowledge she shared to walking us through the process - we felt totally at ease.
Her prenatal yoga classes are amazing. These classes really helped me get into the right head space for delivery. Allowing me some time during the week to meditate, envision the birth I wanted, stretch and strengthen my body.
Not only was I able to prep and talk with Mary during the last few weeks of my pregnancy, I had the pleasure of working with her partner doula Eldrid too.
Eldrid has such a calming presence and a lot of strength! During my contractions I would lean on my husband while Eldrid applied counter pressure to my lower back/hips. She was very considerate of how much pressure I needed or if I needed her to help a different way. Eldrid provided such intuitive support; even in moments when I was unable to express what I needed she was placing cold compresses to my forehead, massaging and shaking out my legs after contractions. Really just going with the flow of my labor in the most caring way. Having a doula present wasn't just beneficial for me but also my husband. It was another person in our corner supporting us through such a big experience. With Lotus Doula Tribe you are guaranteed to be in good hands!
