Nicole Batiste

Maritday has been amazing to work with. From the start, shes understood and respected our wishes regarding our birth plan and was always there every step of the way to inform us of our options and expectations. After going through a traumatic birthing experience with my first child, Maritday was there to offer guidance, unbiased information, and emotional support throughout my final trimester, birth, and postpartum period with my second child. She helped with meal prep, natural pain management options during early labor, lactation consulting, and so much more. I highly recommend her!

Maritday is THE Best!!! A lifesaver!! Full spectrum doula!! She is a blessing to all those she cares for...she fed me back to health and strength. She provided herbs and tinctures to bring balance back to my life. She provided support to my husband. And most importantly cared for our new son. She is full of knowledge and understands each step and fully integrates this knowledge in her care for a family. She also understands the support and information needed for a mom's spiritual well being too. Did I mention that she is an incredible cook too!! It was so hard to have her leave us! She was with us for the first 3 months of our child's life and as a new family with no family nearby she was a blessing to have and I feel we were lucky to have her versus our own family. If you are wondering if you need a postpartum doula or a doula she is your best and ONLY choice!
