Mallary has been a doula with Lancaster Doulas LLC since 2016. Her passion for birth and babies is unmatched. Mallary’s fun and bubbly personality makes her fun to work with while also being an anchoring presence.
It starts with passion:
When she was 16, she started to figure out her future career. She delved deep into herself to find what meant a lot to her, and what might be her life’s work. She kept coming back to the thought of caring for babies. She took that recurring thought as a good sign to go to college for nursing, and hoped to become a NICU nurse down the road. After a year and a half of schooling, she landed a summer job at a cabinetry shop, which turned into a comfortable full-time job for 3 years. While her stars were not aligning as she wanted them to, she realized that she had lost sight of her plans and her passion. Around that time her best friend became pregnant. That was the catalyst that revived her enthusiasm toward taking care of mothers and babies. Since then she has completed training for Birth Doula, Postpartum Placenta Specialist, and Postpartum Doula and Infant Care Specialist. She also work alongside a local home birth midwife as a labor assistant. She has taken her passion and dove in headfirst, never looking back.
