I would like to highly recommend Maggie Morales as a doula. Maggie helped me after the birth of my sweet daughter born via an emergency c-section.Maggie is calm, patient and wise-essential characteristics to have as a doula. These qualities are a tremendous blessing to a new mother as she is hit with the “culture shock” of being a new mom.Maggie called me immediately after the birth of my child and ask me if there was any specific area I wanted assistance with. I explained to her that I wanted to learn how to help my daughter latch onto me without the aid of a nipple shield (at the hospital she had been given a nipple shield because I was struggling with breastfeeding her). Maggie came to my house with paper resources explaining how to wean a baby off the nipple shield. She calmly waited as I attempted to latch my daughter on to me directly. She helped me feel comfortable and confident and because of her encouragement I was able to latch my daughter on to me directly! I believe God sent her to help me and I felt SO encouraged and accomplished as a mother thanks to her help. It meant the world to me that I was able to nurse my daughter. It was an answer to my prayers! Maggie helped me in just the nick of time. In addition to helping me overcome this milestone as a new mother, Maggie taught me how to give my baby a massage, she showed me helpful ways to engage with my baby, showed me how to set up a meal train, helped me with baby wearing, showed me how to take care of myself and answered ANY questions I had regarding motherhood and adjusting. She ALWAYS brought resources and tools whenever she came over and was so great with my daughter (she loved her too!). Maggie is extremely knowledgable and kind. I would highly recommend Maggie to ANY one looking for a doula. She is a wonderful person and made me feel “right at home.” She is trustworthy. She helped me become confident. I learned so much from her and I love her!
Mi lactancia no fue la mas facil y estoy convencida de que si Maggie no hubiera estado presente en mi vida habria claudicado tarde o temprano, sin lugar a dudas.
Gracias a ella supere un sin numero de obstaculos desde la primera semana. Maggie fue la primera persona que nos ensenio a mi bebe y a mi que posturas utilizar (en la clinia nos dieron asesoría cero). Me asesoro certeramente para superar unas dolorosas perlas de leche, una candidiasis y nada mas ni nada menos que 4 horrorosas mastitis, una de ellas seriamente infecciosa.
Maggie siempre estubo alli, animandome y brindandome su apoyo, su carinio, su experiencia y tantos conocimientos profesionales! Con su manera dulce me dio siempre la confianza y la fuerza para continuar!
Y asi lo logre! 6 meses de LME con una bebe rosagante que tiene rollos entre sus rollos!
Gracias Maggie!! Eres un angel!!
Maggie was a great doula and provided wonderful advice. She showed me effective techniques that, as a first time mom, I was nervous about - even basic things like burping! Maggie encouraged me to get to know my baby and relax and enjoy the newborn experience. At the same time, she taught me age-appropriate playtime activities and things like how to encourage my baby to roll over etc. She spent a lot of time getting to know me, my husband, and our baby as a family. She observed the baby when he was fussy and suggested various techniques to settle him down (things I didn't read in baby books!). I enjoyed the time I spent with Maggie and highly recommend her to any new moms who are looking for a helping hand, encouragement and knowledgable advice!!
Su conocimiento y experiencia nos ayudo muchísimo como padres primerizos.
El tener una doula en casa fue de un gran alivio y fue como tener un libro abierto de las mil preguntas que teniamos para con mi bebe. Maggie hizo un rol muy importante, en el tiempo que la tuvimos en casa formo parte de nuestra familia.
Tenemos mucho que agradecerle.
Paola, Oswaldo y ahora mi pequeño Adrian
