Maggie grew up in Indiana and moved to Brooklyn 12 years ago.  She has been a doula for over 10 years and a birth assistant for 7 years. Originally trained through the Brooklyn Birthing Center, Maggie has had the privilege to assist and learn from over 40 different NYC midwives through home birth and birthing centers and witnessing over 400 births.

With a background in marriage and family therapy, she has found the balance of doula work and birth assisting the best of both worlds. She also moonlights as a Certified Lactation Counselor and Placenta Specialist.

Maggie is the perfect combination of down to earth and funny with wisdom and experience. Maggie has the ability  to  empower you to be the best, most confident, strongest YOU during pregnancy, labor, pushing, and then Mama once your baby is here. Her rare sensitivity to timing and tone allows her to know exactly when to step in and offer encouragement, and when to step back and create space for a family to just be together. She provides incredible support at an especially vulnerable time and does so with compassion, patience, and humor. Oh, and she takes great photos too!
