The most difficult part of birth is the first year afterwards. It is the year of travail- when the soul of a woman must birth the mother inside her... it is a private and silent birth of the soul, but it is no less holy than the event of childbirth, perhaps it is even more sacred.  

-Joy Kusek

Supported Mamas are Confident Mamas

Hannah Murfet and Ashley Demmitt are sisters (in-law) who joined forces to hold space for women and families as they navigate the birth and postpartum experience. Yes, it takes a village to raise a child, but it also takes a village to raise a mother. Women need a system of support as we go through the induction of motherhood -- welcoming a new life, sharing our birth story, processing a surplus of emotions, and facing our insecurities. 


We are here to fill the gap that exists in our culture. We are here to normalize birth and postpartum support because we know that supported mamas are confident mamas.

What Mamas Are Saying

"Wow! I don't even know where to begin. I could never thank Ashley enough for all she has done for us. She is the reason I stuck with breastfeeding and got through those first couple weeks. She is the reason I feel comfortable and safe co-sleeping. She is the reason I understand why my baby gets fussy at night. She is the reason I committed to cloth diapering because I didn't feel as overwhelmed learning something new with her help. I don't want to know what my mental and emotional state would have been without her...I have so much appreciation and gratitude in my heart for Ashley!"

"Tess is one of the kindest people we’ve ever met. She is incredibly patient with our toddler, newborn, and us. In supporting our postpartum journey, she often did things she knew I needed without even being asked. She helped with endless laundry, cooking, tidying, baby sleep and feeding support, making sure I was fed/hydrated/rested, playing with our toddler and newborn, and the list goes on. Having Tess on our team made this postpartum experience so much easier. We are so incredibly grateful for her!
Highly recommend The Supported Mama for all things pregnancy, birth, and postpartum!

"Hannah was a huge asset leading up to and during my home birth! Such a calming presence, so much knowledge, infinitely encouraging and seemed to anticipate my needs before I knew them. You are in great hands with Hannah, mamas!

"Leidy was our doula and she was so amazing! She made us feel confident about the decisions we made, about being able to manage pain naturally, and about asking the right questions to the doctor. She stayed with us in the hospital the whole 2 days I was trying to be induced and stayed through my C-section to make sure it went well. She was a support for me, my husband, and my family who was there as well. She helped us with questions we had after the birth as well. I can’t recommend her enough!"
