“Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers ~ strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and know their inner strength.”

Madison Doula

As a doula, I want to encourage you, support you and inspire you to find your inner strength.  Birth is an empowering experience when all force of life comes rushing into a moment. It’s intense and glorious.   The experience will change you and live with you for the rest of your life.  

 

I want to make sure that you remember that experience full of light and strength.  I believe you can have the birth you want.   I believe in you.
