Rose Marie mentored me when I started doing doula work over 25 years ago. I’m sure that she’s helped launch many a career in the birth world with her untiring support and education.
There has been a remarkable growth in the resources available to women in our area, including Happy Bambino, the Madison Birth Center, a wealth of childbirth classes, home birth practices and a rich on-line community. Our strong doula community intertwines many of these places & practices. Rose Marie’s activism helped plant the seeds for the sweet birth community we have today. She deserves this recognition!
