Malaika was our postpartum doula and helped us out with our newborn daugher for the first few weeks of her life. Malaika is very professional and has great experience in handling newborns!  Her personality is easy going and she fit right into our famiy routine.  In addition to caring for our newborn, Malaika also trained my mother and our new nanny on infant care basics!  Our family highly recommends Malaika as she is a caring, respectful, and experienced doula!

Gift from god! Malika came to us in a time of need while I was suffering from postpartum anxiety and depression. We had an instant connection and she created an instant bond with our little man at just a few weeks old.  She made me feel at ease when around and helped me out tremendously not only with our son, but also with light house cleaning and cooking if necessary. I couldn’t have gotten through such a difficult time without her! 

A few qualities:

professional

caring and nurturing

knowledgable 

attentive 

polite

Thank you Malika!!
