Certified Breastfeeding Specialist
Maria was raised in the Greater Puget Sound area, attaining her diploma from a private school and furthering her education in culinary and nutrition. She has three children: two girls and one boy. Having children of her own, and helping family and friends along the way, Maria found her love for facilitating the best possible experience for parents before, during, and after having a new baby.
“One of the most important parts of labor is comfort in your surroundings, and the method of birth. Every woman should birth the way they feel comfortable.” Maria views being a doula as being akin to having an extra mother, husband, and best friend in the room with you - someone knowledgeable, comforting, and who can help in any way needed so you have a voice even if you can’t talk. Maria is obtaining all of the certifications she can to be the best Doula she can be!
