Certified Birth & Postpartum Doulas
Mary is warm, calm, supportive, knowledgeable, and I could not have asked for a better experience with a doula! When I met Mary I immediately knew that she was the right one for me. She is such a calming presence and exudes such natural joy when talking about children, babies, and birth. She alleviated my worries and made my husband and me feel like we would be able to have a birth experience where we felt heard and emotionally comfortable every step of the way. My husband and I sometimes have trouble self-advocating, we expressed this concern to Mary, and she was incredible at being a kind but firm voice helping us to do so during labor and delivery. My husband also wanted to be very hands on and helpful during L&D and Mary was wonderful at giving him the tools do so successfully and helping both of us along the way. She was there for me via text or phone throughout pregnancy and during my last couple of weeks we checked in regularly. Mary was always kind, helpful, and willing to answer questions or calm my worries. When I started labor at home she was in constant contact with us. We had her meet us at the hospital and she was right with us every step of the way until after our son was born. I truly attribute how well I handled labor and delivery as well as how well it went in large part to Mary. I had originally been very nervous to give birth and now have both a beautiful baby and a very positive memory of my overall experience. Mary is incredible!
Mary is truly amazing! My husband and I both were SO THANKFUL to have her by our side during the birth of our son. She was there when we needed her and she gave us space when we needed it. I can’t imagine getting through 44 hours of labor without her (which included 3 hours of pushing, during which Mary was a HUGE help). We highly recommend Full Circle!
Mary is most definitely a gift from above!! The moment I met Mary, I thought she was so sweet. Mary respected my wishes from start to finish, and helped me more than I imagined. Mary was always willing to explain everything to me, to make sure I knew my options. I felt comfortable to text or call her anytime, and she always let me know how excited she was for me. On May 20th I finally went into labor, and contractions were strong and hard. Mary asked permission to rub my back, and was so encouraging. I am so thankful for the natural and drug free labor and delivery I had! If I had not been surrounded by women who believed in me, I do not know if I could have done it. Mary loves her job, and I could not have asked for a better doula. Thank you so much Mary!
