Tabitha and Marilyn and Cathy are amazing support and just what EVERY woman deserves at their birth. These kind and nurturing women know exactly what each woman needs, and helps to provide comfort and strength during the birthing experience. The peace and calming presence they bring to the birthing space speaks volumes about their experience and the care they provide to the women they serve! I without a doubt would recommend them to any of my mommas who desire a natural birth, or just the presence of amazing birthing support during their pregnancy, birth, and postpartum journey.

"I didn’t feel like I was working with a doula--it was like having one of my best friends by my side...She made me feel at ease and at peace ALL the TIME."


"A treasure trove of knowledge and techniques for aiding the mother and father."


"I not only had a sucessful VBAC because of their awesome service...I am also a better mother to my children because I know them. If you are in Virginia, you could not make a better choice than to have them as your doulas."


"She brought us so much peace and comfort. Our home was filled with laughter and prayer. I joke that the care I received during labor was better than a Sandals resort!"


"She remained SO sweet and supportive, telling me my different options and helping me make a decision without pushing me in any one direction. I was afraid that if I ended up needing an epidural, I would feel like a failure, but she was so reassuring and helped me see that was not the case. As it turned out, once I had the epidural, labor started up again and the baby was born very soon!"


"If I had known back then what I know now, I would have had her at each one of our deliveries. Not only is her knowledge of birth impressive, her LOVE of birth is even more incredible!"


Complicated birth

"She exudes a gentle grace that brought me so much peace amidst my overwhelming doubts and fears surrounding my third birth, a VBA2C."


"After a long series of events, I ended up delivering via c-section...having her there brought a tremendous amount of peace to me...& we will forever be grateful for her presence at our son's birth."


“When no one else understood, you did.”

The research is definitive: professional doula support improves outcomes for mothers and their babies, and increases satisfaction with the experience of birth. While any constant support will provide benefits, our wisdom and dedication is a rare find, a particular advantage to those seeking a calm and confident birth.

If a doula were a drug, it would be unethical not to use it.
