TESTIMONIALS

From our community

Mother of baby Z

After spending time doing Google searches for Black and Brown midwives and doulas in the Austin area I stumbled upon the Mama Sana Vibrant Woman website and from there sent an email inquiring about their support. I decided to sign up for their free prenatal support groups led by MSVW birth companion, Ellen Gonzalez. Ellen provided a wealth of resources and support about birthing techniques, best practices for advocating for yourself during childbirth (especially with the new COVID procedures) and preparing our home environment for a new baby.
