Dina Maldonado is the best doula ever ! She helped me deliver my twin boys as if she was one more person of the medical staff. She is very skilled and knowledgeable, offers support and advice, is with you throughout the whole process, and knows exactly how the treatments, medications, etc work, and explains you every single moment of the delivery process and how to ease the pain and Labour. More than a doula, she has become a member of our family. Thank you for everything Dina !!!
