Meet the Doula
Hello, mamas new and old! My name is Maggie and I am a DONA International Birth Doula. During the last month of my second pregnancy, I read the pregnancy book "Made for This" by Mary Haseltine which helped me feel confident that I was capable and able to give birth, not resigned that it would happen. While both of my births were in hospital settings, both were helped with medicines, and the second one had a successful epidural (unlike the first), after reading and planning more for the second birth, I felt incredibly empowered, in control, and ultimately felt that I was in fact made for this moment of birth.
Since then I have been passionate about all things birth and wanting to help not only mothers but also their husband/partner to feel in control and as prepared as possible going into such an intense, but beautiful experience.
When not engaged in birth work, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two girls, engaging in my faith, running, gardening, and doing anything else that can get me outside!
Whether you're having a vaginal or a scheduled cesarean, medicated or unmedicated, hospital, birth center, or home birth, I would love to be a part of your support team and help you know that you are made for this!
