Here is what a client named Maryellen has to say about working with Mia:
I was lucky enough to have Mia help with the delivery of my 2nd baby. She was so wonderful during my delivery, she was just an extra helping hand to help me cope with the contractions. She had an amazing arsenal of tools and ideas to help. She put a cool compress on my head while I was laboring and made suggestions for my husband on ways to support me. She even took some wonderful photos of the delivery! If your trying to decide if a doula is right for you I can not recommend Mia enough!
Here is what a client named Stacey D has to say about working with Maria Lena:
I knew I wanted a doula from the moment I found out I was pregnant and after a short search online, I found Maria. I appreciated her profile and personal statement and found her to be, in person, exactly as she presented online. What I appreciated most about Maria was her flexibilty and her focus on me...my birth plan changed significantly after labor started; I had big ideas about a natural birth, but nothing could have prepared me for what labor would be like or the challenges I would face (back labor, prolonged labor), and while Maria worked to make certain the choices I made would still result in me being happy about the birth process, it was never about her own views or personal ideas and wishes, it was all about me and my needs and wishes; and, Maria’s flexibility, support, and positive attitude are one of the biggest reasons why I can still look back on the birth of my son so postively and happily, in spite of the changes in my birth plan. I also appreciated the time Maria took with me, not only to discuss my birth plan and answer my questions, but just to get to know me personally; we were never rushed. While we were complete strangers when we first met for an interview, I felt like I had one of my best friends in the delivery room with me, and her support postpartum got me through some difficult times when I experienced breastfeeding troubles. I do not hesitate to recommed Maria as a birth doula and can say, without a doubt, that I would request her services again if and when I need them.
Here is what a client named Erica Hernandez has to say about working with Michi:
When people ask me how motherhood is going, I can confidently say wonderfully, and that's because of Michi helping me in the transition. I hired Michi to support me through the practice of the cuarentena, in which I would stay home for 40 days following the birth of my daughter. Once a week, she would come to my home (which at the time was a small studio apartment) and either provide a postpartum massage, hot cupping, or in-home bath to help with my blood flow and provide me the space of healing through her knowledge and practice of ancestral techniques.
Following the 40 days, she hosted a cerrada for me. While I was sad to part ways with Michi at this point, I know that she had helped me transition fully into motherhood with the healing of my physical body that had gone through labor and my mental through the meditations and readings she gave. I felt so special and honored by her, and I am so grateful to Michi for allowing me to find space during this time.
I can't recommend Michi enough and highly recommend her to anyone seeking to make this investment. Regardless of your physical space, Michi knows how to create a world that allows a new mother to transition confidently and be cared for.
