NEW YORK CITY AFFILIATED DOULAS
Maggie Connolly – Tier 2
Maggie is a DTI trained birth and postpartum doula. With each opportunity Maggie has had to work with expectant and new families, her respect for the birth process has deepened. Maggie comes from the field of social work and has worked with adults with developmental disabilities for a number of years. This experience has taught her the positive impact a calm, respectful and supportive presence can have on others who are facing a physically or emotionally challenging experience. Maggie has also advocated for reproductive rights and understands the importance of a pregnant person having autonomy in their birth experience. Maggie hopes to bring a sense of steady, nonjudgmental support to her role as a birth doula so that parents-to-be feel informed about their birth choices and supported in their birth decisions.
