Our family hired Maria for postpartum doula services for a total of 40 hours over 10 visits in August- September 2022, and highly recommend her to any family seeking a warm, helpful, loving presence in their homes with the arrival of a new baby.
Skills and talents include:
Washing of baby
Massaging baby (and ridding of gas)
Massaging mother (esp swollen legs and feet)
Leading gentle yoga and stretch sessions
Preparing healthful foods such as chicken soup and lemon-turmeric-ginger shots
Light tidying of clothes/dishes
Wise, supportive, emotionally attuned advice on range of topics
Helpful recommendations on how to improve feeding/ sleeping / eating / postpartum recovery
We will truly miss Maria and she was a wonderful help to us!
