Mama Tanesha


At first I was one of those pregnant women that thought a doula was unnecessary but I’m glad I met Maryetta when I did. She gave me guidance on nutritious foods to support my pregnancy, labor, postpartum recovery and breastfeeding journey. She helped me stay motivated throughout my pregnancy, encouraged me to drink lots of water, practice yoga to prepare for contractions and of course use this huge exercise ball to prepare my body for the labor marathon. Maryetta loves dates and will try to make you love them too. She even walked with me in the final days leading up to my labor. 

With Maryetta's support and guidance my husband and I were able to have a short labor and a natural un-medicated birth. Our son latched immediately and a year later our breastfeeding journey is still going well. 

I am beyond thankful for Maryetta's postpartum period preparations. We had healthy, breastfeeding-appropriate meals prepared and frozen to save time and money during our postpartum period. Maryetta came to visit after my son was born and showed me how to wrap our baby safely to my body to allow me to complete things around the house, while still providing skin to skin. She also provided a safe space as I recounted the details of my amazing natural birth. Having her support made my transition into motherhood easier. I will definitely have her for my next birth! 

Thank you Mama Yetta 



After experiencing subsequent pain from having an epidural with my first birth, I wanted to try a natural birth, but I wasn’t sure that I could handle the pain. Maryetta assured me that my body was designed to handle the task. She walked with me, did yoga with me, made sure I stayed hydrated, prepared healthy snacks for my son and I, and entertained him during my labor. She even captured the moment that my son met his little brother for the first time. I can’t thank her enough for showing me a traditional method of carrying my new baby hands free, which really came in handy moving around the house postpartum. Maryetta made me feel like family. She was very flexible in working with my budget and still keeps in touch.



When my wife first told me she wanted to have an unassisted homebirth, I was completely against it. I was grateful to find Maryetta. She was extremely helpful in providing me with the tools and more importantly the confidence needed to support my wife in the birth experience she desired!
