Tatyana Perlova

I can’t say enough how grateful I am to have had Malisa as a doula during my first pregnancy. Malisa’s emotional, physical and informational support throughout last months of pregnancy, during labor and postpartum was indispensable.

As I was planning for natural childbirth, Malisa provided us with a ton of useful evidence-based information (as well as demonstrations) about natural methods of pain management. Malisa gave me and my husband a clear and detailed picture of what to expect during the day of birth. During the 12 hours of active labor, Malisa was supporting us in a myriad of different ways, e.g. relieving the contractions pain by applying counter pressure, encouraging and helping me to switch positions, and providing emotional support to my husband.

Malisa’s patient, calm and caring personality made it easy to establish warm relationship right away and was especially reassuring during labour. Malisa was respectful and supportive of our birth preferences and worked with us to reach these goals and to be prepared if things do not go as planned.

Moreover, in addition to being a qualified doula, Malisa is an experienced prenatal yoga teacher and a lactation consultant. Malisa and I had a fantastic yoga session just a few weeks before labor; a week after birth, Malisa visited us and gave usa lot of helpful tips on latching, breastfeeding positions, pumping and introducing a bottle.

Both me and my husband are extremely grateful for Malisa’s help and support and cannot imagine a better doula.

I have great experience with Malissa during my delivery. She is a perfect doula as she completly understands what a person needs during that special time while giving birth. She ia very calm during the whole process. She gave me excellent massages as i requested before giving birth. She helped me do yoga and excercises day before my delivery to help position my baby in the right position. She visted us 4 times before the delivery and helped me withe massages, yoga, breathing exercise that helped me stay calm during my delivery. She is an awesome person who listen to you very carefully and try to understand what your needs are and what helps you to calm down during the painful contractions. In short, we had wonderful experience with Malissa throughout the whole process.

Malisa was my doula when I gave birth to my daughter in August. My birth plan was for my baby to be born naturally. I had to be induced at 37 weeks and I was really scared. Malisa was there not only during my labor and delivery but also the night of my induction. She was very helpful when I needed information on other pregnancy related things. During my labor she was so helpful. She was able to help me through my contractions. When it was time for me to deliver my daughter Malisa helped me with breathing techniques so I could have a safe and easy delivery! I will always love to have Malisa there during the birthday of all my babies! Every time one of my friends is close to delivery I always suggest that they call a doula because of the awesome experience I had with Malisa!
