About Madison

     My decision to become a Doula came about as many of my friends began having children. Because I'd already had my own birth experience with my son, my friends came to me with questions about how their own experiences might be. Realizing that all I had was my own experience to draw from, I began researching ways to help them more. As I learned about doula's and the support and care they give to women during their birthing experience, I knew that's what I wanted to do.  I knew that I wanted to be able to help women make the best out of their birth experiences, so that years later they would still feel successful thinking about the labor and delivery of their children.
     As a doula, my goal is to help you create a birth plan tailored to your wants and needs. I strive to listen to you, your hopes, and your concerns and help you through in whatever way you may  need. I have training and experience in helping mother's (and their partner's!) cope through all stages of labor and delivery, with or without the use of pain medication.
