I went into our experience with Maria never hearing of the idea of a doula or knowing what doula meant. I would’ve guessed a doula was a body part in Latin.
My wife had met Maria and proposed the idea to me. Half of me liked the idea of having someone else involved that knows what they’re doing the other half was admittedly sceptical to involve someone and feared she may step on my toes in the process.
Maria’s process was amazing from the first time I met her. She came over to our home and gave me the opportunity to ask any questions I had at all and express concerns I had about working with a doula. She made the entire experience about what I and more importantly what my wife wanted for our sons birth.
Leading up to and during the birth Maria was an amazing part of our team, using her knowledge and background to make it a phenomenal experience. I never once felt intruded upon. She interfaced with the delivery team at the hospital seamlessly and helped us communicate what we needed and took so many little things off our plate throughout.
I’d work with Maria again in a heartbeat and recommend her to anyone. She helped make our birth a very special experience.
