Testimonial for Maris James, CD (DTI), CBE, CBC

If you are seeking out the services of a doula, I cannot recommend Maris James highly enough. Throughout the time my wife and I worked with her, she went above and beyond meeting all of our needs, which culminated with a labor and delivery that was succesful and greatly aided by the guidance and practices Maris introduced to us.

I could try to summarize what Maris did for us in two ways. The first way was basically acting as a pregnancy mentor/coach/sounding board for us during pregnancy. If we had a question, needed advice, or wanted her opinion on a matter, she was happy to give her point of view and quickly responded to all of our texts and inquiries. Whether it was something read or something my wife's OB mentioned, we came to greatly value Maris's POV. Her manner was so incredibly calming and her personality always made us feel at ease. Maris was always great about proactively checking in on us, as well, to make sure we were doing well if we hadn't reached out in a while.

In addition to the above, the stretching and labor techniques Maris taught us in the weeks leading up to labor, as well as what we were taught to employ during labor, were so so so incredibly helpful to ensuring my wife's labor was successful. I cannot stress what a difference it made having her in the room during labor, re-orienting my wife's body into the most comfortable positions at a given time. I give a ton of credit to Maris for helping ensure my wife's comfort throughout the labor and delivery process.

We could not have asked for a better experience than the one we had with Maris.
