Madison accompanied me during my second pregnancy. She is very knowledgeable, listens to you without any judgement and answers all your questions and concerns you may have. You can see that she truly cares about helping and supporting other women throughout pregnancy and beyond. I wish I would have come across somebody like her during my first pregnancy also.

Madison helped me examine what was important to me, armed me with information, and listened while I made my own choices and came to my own conclusions, all in my native language, which made me feel even more comfortable. She even has a library of pregnancy books which you have access to when you enlist her services.

At first, I wasn’t sure if I needed a doula. But looking back, I couldn’t imagine my pregnancy without her. If you’re on the fence about if or why you need a doula, just hire Madison.

I have been lucky enough to work with Madison over the last few months. She is super knowledgeable, friendly, respectful, and sweet. In addition to her postpartum session and overview on labor/delivery, she was able to teach my partner and I massage techniques to make labor and delivery more manageable/enjoyable
