 Over 100 births attended including Vbac's, water-birth, hypno-birth, physiologic, and  highly medically managed.

About milwaukee doula Martha-a doula by natural calling

I created Doula Woman because people are beautiful and spiritual and draw from an ancient wisdom.  We often give away our power when it is ours to cherish.   


My doula philosophy:   your body,  birth and motherhood  belong to you.  You are the power and authority on this.  You intrinsically know what is best for yourself and baby, for the mom-baby unit.   I love birth and all things related!


You need not give up what calls to you, be it  bodily sovereignty, continuum of the mom-baby unit, spontaneous labor, vaginal birth, epidural-free, epidural asap, home birth, planned csection, freedom from pleasing others, etc. in order to have a healthy baby.  You and your baby are healthiest when you work from self-trust.


Historically during postpartum  people would settle in for 40 days with their newborn and do nothing but care for themselves and their newborns.  As a postpartum doula I bridge what has been lost in current times.


I worked 18+ years in the medical system as a cardiac ultrasound tech.  This experience means  I feel comfortable in a hospital setting, have worked with nurses and doctors, can translate medical language, and I have worked with in-patients in hospital. 


My doula work is interwoven with my life and I love this. I navigate the system on behalf of family members and have done this for decades.  My own children are adults.  The positive effects from the doula support I received at my third birth are felt decades later.  


 When we are not under pandemi regulations, I  lead prenatal yoga, provide child-care,  volunteer at the Riverwest co-op, and walk all around Milwaukee.  


 I am signed for the Radical Rebel Birthkeepers course to begin in June.


 I would love to connect with you and feel free to ask me anything.  Thank you for reading this.  

Sincerely, Milwaukee doula MarthaI

  In addition to birth and postpartum doula services I offer prenatal yoga, reiki, and placenta encapsulation. The ingestion of your placenta has shown to help with postpartum mood.
