Glad to meet you!

Martha Bishop, Doula and Lactation Counselor

I offer calm and compassionate care for expectant parents and families with newborns.

I am calm. I am a good listener. I will collaborate with you to help you figure out what you need...and then help you do it.

Hi, I'm Martha!

I have been supporting families since 2015. I'm a birth doula, postpartum doula, and lactation counselor.

I find it so satisfying to join a family where they are on their parenting journey, and help them work toward their goals.

Sometimes those goals fall apart in a blaze of glory!!  The natural birth becomes emergency cesarean. The exclusive breastfeeding plan becomes a formula feeding plan. I also find it satisfying to help a family get through those tough times too.

You can expect cheerful, warm, and calm, support from me.

 

I cared for babies and young children as a teen. I was a nanny and child care provider for many years. All in preparation for my own parenting journey...which never happened.

I stepped away from the work for a long while. I joined the corporate world. While the travel was fun, and the work engaging, it was not heart work.

I rediscovered my passion for supporting families after being laid off for the third time. I decided it was finally time to get back to the work I love with all my heart. So here I am. Ready to be there for you, pressure and judgment free, as you navigate parenting for the very first time or as you create a new normal for your growing family.
