In Joy Birth is a partnership of two experienced and professional expert doulas.
Heather Rich is a mother of two and has 12+ years experience as a birth doula. She is trained from CAPPA and DONA + 5 years hands on continuing education by local midwives. Other continuing education includes: breastfeeding, postpartum mood disorders, infertility, and bereavement services. She is the former President of GetPumped!, and works alongside with Florida Le Leche League, MOMS club, Central Florida Birth Network, The Breastfeeding Project, Connected Mothering, Florida Friends of Midwives (Central Florida).
Madeline Mosco has recently joined the In Joy team to cover Alyssa while she is out on maternity leave. Madeline is a Canadian transplant, who moved to Orlando after spending her early twenties and meeting her husband - in NYC. Her house is filled with the giggles and noise of her 2 young kiddos and 3 friendly cats. Madeline's background is in the corporate world in managing and team building. Her passion, however, has always been in women's rights and birth. After becoming a mother, she was shocked at how much she didn't know about labor and new parenthood - despite the books, and classes. After speaking with other mothers, she found the same. Madeline loves to help women navigate the awe inspiring, anxiety ridden, joyful and emotional moments of becoming a mother. She is a certified birth and postpartum doula and was trained by Alyssa and Heather. Madeline approaches everything in life with compassion, open-mindedness and a whole lot of laughter.
“Women are often under so much pressure- to get it right, to have the perfect birth, to breastfeed with ease, and to immediately recover. The truth is, there is no right, no gold medal for best birther, and everyone's journey is unique. I’m here to help provide you with tools, techniques, support and guidance so you can go through your journey with confidence and with so much love”. - M
