Choosing to have Maria as my Doula was the best decision I've ever made with my pregnancy. She is the perfect balance of science and soul. She was a resource who provided helpful information and also an emotional support system when I needed it most. The best part about Maria is that she has a way of completely empowering the woman she is helping by following the mother's intuition and doing so as a guide so you never feel alone or afraid in the process. My daughter came fast and furiously in a natural birth and I know I wouldn't have had such a successful delivery if it wasn't for Maria. Even after birth, she as a warm presence who checked in on me and my family not just because she had a postpartum visit as part of her services, but because she cares deeply and genuinely. I had a different doula for my first pregnancy and she didn't even come close to the knowledge, support, and connection that I received from Maria. Maria makes me want to have a baby every year! Any woman would be lucky to know her, call her a friend, and have her part of her birth story.
