Hello! Welcome to MamaDoula! Let me introduce myself ... I'm Mary and I have been a certified Birth Doula since 2011. I absolutely love all things babies and birth! I believe in a women's body, her inner strength and innate intuition to bring forth life in the way we were created to do. I also believe the tiny little humans that they are carrying in their bellies also KNOW how to be born! Together, mom and baby work together to accomplish birth! As a mom myself, I know the dance and how intricate it all is - I also KNOW how vital having a great birthing support team is! I'm incredibly blessed to be able to provide that valuable support to my clients and their families during the most life-changing journey of their lives!
I've always loved birth and attended births of family and friends for years before I ever dreamed I could actually do it as a career. I always assumed one had to be an RN to be a member of the birthing team. When I learned that there was a real "job" that didn't require 4 years of nursing school, I was in heaven! I couldn't wait to begin my dream job as a Doula! Once my kiddos were grown, I started my formal training and completed all the requirements for certification as fast as I could. Since then, I have continued educating myself to stay current with evidence-based best practices in birthing, became certified in Hypnobabies and Hypnobirthing labor management techniques. I've had the good fortune of being professionally trained in Spinning Babies techniques by the creator of SB herself, Gail Tulley!! I've added the art and science of certified Placental Encapsulation to support my birthing moms, as well. I have attended all types of births over the years. Hospitals, Birth Centers and homebirths. I've supported families with natural, unmedicated births, medicated (Nitrous Oxide to Epidural), Surgical to waterbirths. I've supported families where partners have been completely hands-on to partners being more comfortable having me take the main support role. It's all good and I go with the flow to support my clients in any of the ways they want or need. Each family is unique, which makes my job ever changing and it grows me as a Doula every single time I attend a birth! I LOVE it!!
I live in the Hudson, WI area with my hubby and beautiful lab puppy, Louie! I'm excited to meet you and tell you more! Let's get started .....
