About Maria


I became a parent after dealing with fertility issues and through that process I gained an interest in pregnancy, childbirth and supporting women as they build their families.

I have had a variety of birth experiences myself ranging from one with all the bells and whistles at a hospital, to one that occured with a midwife in my home.  After the birth of my 3rd child, I completed my doula certification and also trained to become a childbirth educator.  Since then I have attended over 350 births (over 125 of those being VBACs) and taught countless childbirth classes.  In 2013 I become a doula trainer as well.  I still love what I do!

I believe women are strong and our bodies were designed  to give birth. I believe most women are capable of birthing without medical intervention, however, I believe medical intervention can serve a valid purpose.  There is no one perfect way to give birth, each mother and each situation is unique.  I believe women should be fully informed and educated on their choices in birth so that they can achieve the birth they desire.
