56 hours of postpartum support divided into either 4 hour day shifts or 8 hour night shifts
Hi! I'm Madelene Martin, founder of Beautiful Beginnings Doula Services. I have always loved getting to know families and what makes each one unique; I earned my Bachelor's degree in Family and Child Development from Liberty University in 2018. Wanting to learn more, I studied Human Services Counseling with a concentration in Marriage and Family Therapy and graduated with my Master's of Arts in 2019. During this time, my passion for birth and families was heightened by my time at The Motherhood Collective in Lynchburg, Virginia. This incredible group of women will always hold a special place in my heart as I watched many of them go through their own birth stories during my professional and volunteer work there. In addition to this, I worked with families and children through 4-H, the Cooperative Extension system, teaching, and childcare. My husband, Logan, and I moved to North Carolina in 2020, and we enjoy exploring our relatively new home. When not working with families, I can be found hiking, reading, cooking, crafting, and spending time with family and friends. I cannot wait to meet you!
