Mary is passionate about giving every mother she serves professional support and personalized care through their pregnancy and birth.
Having been raised with nine siblings and now an auntie to 7 nieces and nephews, an interest in labor and delivery came naturally to her. She began seriously considering jobs in the birth field when a friend mentioned she would make a great midwife. After researching more about doulas and the important niche they filled, she knew it was a fit! Mary has loved all the training related to labor, birth, and post-partum care that she has received and is enthusiastic about everything related to birth. She has received her training through DONA and has completed New Creation's mentorship program.
Birth is an important event in every mother’s life. Mary believes every mother should receive the best care through this life-changing experience. She would love to help you meet your unique birth goals by providing assistance with your questions/planning and by giving you compassionate care during labor and birth. Most importantly, she desires to help you make a special memory with your baby that will last a lifetime. Because of her desire for every woman to have access to a doula, she offers a sliding scale for clients who are unable to afford full price.
Mary’s biggest passion in life is loving and serving Jesus Christ. She is a member of Christ Baptist Church in Raleigh. When she is not attending a birth or working on college studies, she enjoys jogging, baking, reading, and spending time with family and friends.
What Mary's clients have said about her…
“Mary was an inestimable blessing to my family when my third child was born. Her cheerful and capable willingness to serve me practically in any way necessary, at a time when I was physically weak, coupled with her gentle, kind spirit made her a welcome and highly valued support. Mary's attentive perception of the needs of others and diligence in ministering to them abundantly evidence her servant's heart. I look forward to having Mary at my future births if I should be so blessed!”
"Mary was an invaluable support to me during my labor, delivery, and postpartum period. Since this was my first birth, I really didn’t know what to expect. Mary calmly and patiently guided me through my contractions. Her insight on different laboring positions and coping techniques was highly beneficial. She encouraged and enabled me to stay and labor well at home before heading to the hospital at the perfect time. She was also a huge support to my husband by encouraging him in his role and allowing him to take short breaks as needed. She was professional, respectful, and highly supportive of our wishes for our little girl’s birth. I can’t recommend her enough!"
