"Maria was a God-send. She was so supportive, a wonderful listener, so encouraging and always a positive person to have near. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone that would be interested in Doula services. She was all that I hoped a Doula would be and more. I really appreciated the wealth of information she had about herbs, homeopathics, and different techniques to use for labor. She was always readily available when I would call and was very good about sending informative e-mails as well. Although my birth did not turn out as hoped, Maria was a vital part of the process, the labor and my recovery. I am so thankful to have found her!" ~ Erin
"Maria knew just what to do. As soon as she arrived, I was in or close to transition, and Maria reached out during a contraction and held her hand against my lower back -PERFECT! I knew, in an instant, that I was GLAD to have Maria as my doula. Thank you! I highly recommend Maria -such a compassionate, loving doula." ~ Kathryn
"We chose to hire a doula for our second birth and were so glad we did.
Maria was focused, relaxed and very calm. She was very knowledgeable
and encouraging but never pressuring or judgmental. The birth of our
daughter went very smoothly, less than 3 hours, and completely natural
and she was there the whole time assisting me and my husband during
the birth of our baby girl. Maria was a wonderful doula and was
always there for me when I needed her (especially through out the end
of my pregnancy, labor, and after delivery." ~ Heather
"My wife and I hadn't planned on having a doula going into this, even though we were wanting to do a VBAC. Lucky for us, just as my wife was going into labor, Maria gave us assistance over the phone. She helped with how the baby should or shouldn't be induced, as well as put us at ease with her knowledge about overdue babies. Maria exudes an air of positivity which is so natural that it cuts through all the chaos and negativity commonly found in conventional hospitals. It was great to have someone in my corner who knew all the answers and was so accessible. It's disturbing to think about how the whole labor experience might have gone had Marie not been in the picture." ~ Kevin
