"Before the birth I often wondered if doulas were even necessary - what if I ended up having a cesarean? Well, I did end up with a c-section, and I still wouldn’t have had it any other way! They made me feel stronger and happier while giving birth, and I felt like a tough woman that could accomplish this wonderful but trying task!"

"Your focus on us as parents and teaching us how to handle situations and our child was incredibly helpful. You helped to build the foundation of tools we need to care for our child (and ourselves). Both of you were fantastic listeners and observers and you really were able to support us in this journey.

Thank you both for everything!!"

“My wife remains confident and optimistic about the process, and I remain somewhat trepidatious, but I know that this class and further personal preparation are key components for being as prepared and capable as I can be.”

"While everything done is done for the baby, it is wonderful to have someone see the benefits that caring for the mother will have on the baby. Marlee's first postpartum visit focused on helping ease my pain from nursing, and validating that it was normal. In addition, I can't stress the value of the little things and the friendship that is formed."

"There can be so many negative emotions and thoughts with pregnancy and labor because a lot can happen differently than planned… having Megan and Marlee helped my self-esteem. Even though I ended up having a c-section due to unexpected issues, I’m glad they were always there for me. I don’t have any regrets about my birth experience this time around."

"What stands out most about my experience with Marlee and Megan is their friendliness and kindness! They are warm and inviting, and didn’t make me feel pressured into doing anything. I wish I had Megan and Marlee there during my first birth because I know my experience would have been so much better."

"It was such peace of mind having Marlee and Megan at the hospital to help me ask questions I felt too embarrassed to ask my doctor or nurse. Most of all, it really helped my husband to feel calmer so that he was able to be 'in the moment' rather than stressed and panicky."

"Before working with Megan and Marlee, I feared that hiring a doula team would be a waste of time since my husband could be a 'doula' for me. It was not a waste at all! Having a doula that hasn’t known me for years gave great perspective and encouragement that helped me in a way my husband couldn’t."

"Having appointments with Marlee gave my husband and I a comfortable setting for discussing things we weren't confident with and questions that we had without feeling stupid or ashamed. It was a very positive addition to our first few weeks of parenthood! We had the extra support that we needed."

"Megan and Marlee’s birth doula services were absolutely invaluable. Not only were they in our home providing advice and care before the arrival of our son, but they stayed the entire 24 hours or more that I was in labor. They were either massaging me, hanging out with our parents and answering their questions, helping me breathe through contractions, or supporting my husband both days we were in the hospital."

"During labor, Marlee and Megan attended to my every need and acted as constant advocates for my husband, for me, and for our baby. They tirelessly supported us all day and through the night. When our daughter finally came into the world, we felt as though our joy and triumph was theirs as well."

"One of the most remarkable characteristics that Megan and Marlee share is the ability to be calm under pressure. They impart a sense of confidence in those around them because of their demeanor. Even in very stressful circumstances, the kind and patient way they both interact with others is remarkable."
