Mary Washburn

I'm Mary Washburn. I've been married to my husband Tim for almost 40 years. We reside in Waco, Texas. Together we have three sons, three daughters in-love, five grandchildren, with number six and seven on the way. Such precious gifts!! Also, in the mix, is grandcat, Nugget, and grandbeagle, Bailey.

I believe "Doula-ing" is in my heart. The opportunity to offer support, to serve, to educate, and promote a more peaceful transition into the family after the birth of their newborn, or adopted infant, is at the heart of a DONA trained doula. I thank you for the privilege and opportunity in joining you on your mothering journey.
