Mandy is a certified Birth Doula and Lactation Counselor with Charis Childbirth. After having her second child, she became interested in all things birth-related, and discovered that she has a true passion for helping fellow mamas have a fulfilling and well-informed birth experience like she did. Her goal as a doula is to support women to birth in awareness, where they feel confident, informed, and surrounded with care, love and respect. As for her life other than doula-ing ... She loves spending time with her husband and three kiddos, reading, chatting with girlfriends over coffee, traveling, leading worship and serving in the infant nursery room at her church, collecting thoughts in her journal, and hanging out on the lake!
"She is easy to talk to if you have questions about anything. She goes by what you want in the delivery room and listens to your wishes. She is there from start to finish. Most importantly, she will do anything for you. She is a great doula who comes highly recommended."

"Mandy is a family friend who kindly offered her services as a doula to me as I was pregnant with my first baby. She was so great about encouraging me to have everything that I wanted in my pregnancy and delivery. Unfortunately, it wasn’t all able to happen, thanks to my baby being a week late, however Mandy was there the whole time, helping me push and deliver my sweet girl. She was so encouraging and gave me exactly what I needed before I even knew I needed it. She would go out of her way to come to the hospital on our many false alarms, stayed at my house while I showered and did many things to help aid contraction pains. Mandy was a true blessing and I would absolutely recommend having a doula, and if at all possible, have Mandy Bartley!!"
