BIG WHEEL SUPPORTERS
Heather Hazelwood specializes in estate planning and the organization and management of small businesses. She is passionate about working with clients to help them plan for the future and manage life’s transitions. Many of her estate planning clients are families with young children, “non-traditional” couples, and couples just before and after marriage. In her free time, Heather enjoys spending time with her family, doing yoga, cycling, and working with Exceptional Kids Yoga Project, the local non-profit she co-founded in 2014. Hurley, Burish & Stanton was established in 1984 by three attorneys and has grown to a firm of twelve attorneys. While relatively small by some standards, the complementary practices areas are staffed by attorneys capable of taking on the most complex and challenging cases in the state.
SwimWest has made the water a safer place for over 23 years! We have sung the praises of Swim West Swim School for years (and years and years), and are continuing to do so. Only a few years into swimming, the eldest of our kids can be found doing backstroke the length of the pool and our youngests are on their way. We’ve seen the magic first hand that turns a child that hates the water to one that is laughing and giggling all throughout class. With so many places to swim in and around Madison, having a child who is safe around water is a must. Their philosophy is to “provide all children, regardless of age, race, or special needs, the best aquatic experience, to teach the necessary skills to be safe in the water, to nurture a love of swimming, and to educate parents about water safety and the aquatic learning process.”
Forward Fertility is an innovative progressive business run by Christie Olsen, a women’s health nurse practitioner and Madison-loving resident since 2002. Primarily, Forward Fertility provides professional guidance and support to women who want to be egg donors or surrogates along with the same exceptional service for the parents-to-be seeking surrogates and/or egg donors. Half of the Forward Fertility clients are male couples hopeful to become fathers via egg donation and surrogacy. Forward Fertility is also committed to the Dane County community at large to improve its “Fertility Literacy” – increasing awareness about fertility testing, treatments, options, and education. This has been done through newspaper articles, radio interview, monthly fertility discussions, and free information sessions across the state.
All too often we hear from friends and colleagues who have had bad experiences with previous realtors who felt, that the realtor was not really working in their best interest. They felt the realtor was just in it to close another deal, and so they didn’t feel they could trust their realtor. At Solidarity Realty, we take our obligation to represent your best interests most seriously. We don’t attempt to “be neutral” and represent both sides — we don’t think that it’s ethically or actually possible. We’re looking to make your life more manageable, and to make Madison a better place to live, by ensuring that consumers are protected, that the details are tended to, and that you feel confident and supported in your real estate transaction, every step along the way.

Madison Area Midwives – Madison and its surrounding areas are rich in maternity care options for childbearing families.

Mother’s Milk Alliance – Mothers’ Milk Alliance was born in 2007 from the meeting of two mothers: one with extra breastmilk and one with low milk supply. Both dilemmas are common and have occurred throughout time. One timeless solution has been milk sharing. Shared breastmilk can optimize infant health and nutrition, while profoundly strengthening social bonds and community resilience. But many mothers either do not know another breastfeeding woman or do not feel comfortable asking for such intimate help. Moreover, mothers want basic assurance that milk from another woman is safe. Their healthcare practitioners want this too. Mothers’ Milk Alliance is an informed choice model of human milk sharing that facilitates donor lab testing, safety education and health screening, and free and local accessibility for infants up to 6 months of age.
Physicians for Women/ The Madison Midwives – Physicians for Women specializes in obstetrics, gynecology and all aspects of women’s health care and works in partnership with The Madison Midwives to offer comprehensive care for women.
