Christina Kindred

Maggie is a reliable postpartum doula, and very easy to get along with. She mostly helped me care for my toddler during the first few months of having a newborn. My son loved playing with her and looked forward to her visits. She is great with children (and dogs), very patient, and fun. She also helped with some household chores like folding laundry, which was helpful during the early days, as well as help me with babywearing. She is hardworking and I definitely recommend her.

Maggie is an outstanding postpartum doula. She is an extraordinarily hard worker and is great at juggling caring for twin newborns while also doing housework.

She is knowledgeable and skilled, but even more importantly, she is compassionate and genuine. My toddler and I both love her.

Maggie has really helped ease the transition from being a family of 3 to a family of 5. I highly recommend her!
