My husband and I wholeheartedly recommend Malea as a birth doula. Malea was amazing! My doctor wanted to induce labor at 41 weeks & this was my first pregnancy, so I was very afraid of ending up with a C-section. With Malea's help, my induction ended happily in a vaginal delivery without any pain medications or epidural!

Malea was very knowledgeable and had a lot of techniques up her sleeve to help with pain relief AND to help with progression of labor. She came incredibly prepared, with a peanut ball, a few essential oils, and more. Her personality was both calming and encouraging, and she coached me through the contractions & helped me be as comfortable as possible under the circumstances. She also answered our questions and helped us advocate for ourselves to work towards having a birth experience that was as close to our natural birth vision as possible, despite the fact that my labor was induced.

As a bonus & per our request, Malea also took pictures during the flurry of activity around the time of our baby's birth. These pictures are so precious to us because they document the first moments of her life & our reactions to her during those first few minutes. We hadn't eaten anything so we were starving after the delivery, and she was even gracious enough to go out and buy food for us so that we could spend uninterrupted time with our baby girl. Malea stayed with us until after baby had started breastfeeding & we felt comfortable.

During our postpartum follow-up visit, Malea came to our home & was super helpful in addressing our concerns & recommended an awesome lactation consultant for us. Malea has been the perfect doula, and we are so grateful and honored to have had her assistance.
