Prenatal and Postpartum resources
While serving the community for many years in public health research, doula work found me after I entered the world of motherhood. After experiencing multiple pregnancies and deliveries with various providers in different cities, states, and countries I felt frustrated by the lack of support. As your doula my mission is to help you navigate your birth journey and find peace, nourishment, and support in this new season of their life.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
NATASHA KAPOOR, BIRTH CLIENT
I retained Maria for her services as a delivery doula but she provided so much support to me pre, during and post delivery. She is extremely knowledgable about all things pregnancy, labour, newborn care and breastfeeding and what I love most is that her advice is always based in facts/research. She is extremely emphatic and the best support system I could have asked for in the delivery room. You will not be disappointed in Maria’s services - she is the support person you didn’t know you needed!
ALEX F., POSTPARTUM CLIENT
