Mary Paliescheskey
I am an experienced Doula/birth attendant, mother of three, and have successfully breastfed while working outside the home.

During labor and delivery, I provide uninterrupted support for you and your partner, beginning at your home and staying through delivery.

During the postpartum period, I provide support designed to allow time for the mother/infant bond to develop. I assist with breast feeding, parenting issues and provide general support to the family. This support is designed to assist your family adjust to the new arrival and facilitate you in creating a strong family bond.

Traditionally, trained experienced women attend each other through out the pregnant year including the prenatal period, labor and delivery, and the post partum period.

The birth attendant/Doula is not meant to replace the support system of the mother, but to enhance it. The motherís supporters/coaches can focus on supporting the motherís emotional needs under the guidance of the experienced Doula. She is there to guide and make practical suggestions to help labor progress. Most importantly she is there to provide calm assurance and build your trust and confidence in yourself.
