Hello, I'm Maira! I am originally from Brazil. And I have been working with children for over five years. My passion taking care of kids began when I decided to be a volunteer in a day-care working with newborns. This experience prompted me to become a certified Birth and Postpartum Doula. I enjoy helping and support families and I am also proud to provide a safe, lovely, and creative environment. My ultimate goal is to empower parents to feel confident and happy with their parenting journey.

I cannot wait to meet your family and be part of your postpartum experience!

maria's Postpartum Package

- gianna s.

"I had the pleasure of having Maira for a little over a year as she took care of my six-month old baby. Maira is a dedicated, compassionate, and intelligent caretaker. Over the time we worked together, Maira continuously demonstrated great responsibility in taking care of my child while I transitioned back to work. Maira cared for my child during both day and nighttime. Maira's duties included routine feedings, meal preparation, taking my child on walks in the park, bathing, and putting my child down for rest time. Maira truly has a passion for caring for children, and this manifests in her clear communication, trustworthiness, and warm positivity. I would highly recommend Maira and believe she would be an excellent asset for any postpartum family. I hope my experience with Maira is helpful for your family in your decision-making process."

"Maira helped me and my husband for three months when our son was born and we could not offer a higher recommendation. She is professional, personable, and has been an invaluable resource as first-time parents. We frequently found ourselves counting down the hours until she arrived, and we slept well not just because someone was watching the baby, but because it was Maira. Aside from helping us get sleep, Maira made a huge impact by providing a wealth of knowledge and encouragement. She showed us how to better use our nursery gear, gave us tips for getting the baby to sleep, helped me figure out bottle feeding-and, perhaps what I valued most was that on the long nights when the baby was fussy or I had issues with milk supply, she was endlessly patient and positive, offering words of support that made a world of difference We are so grateful for our time with Maira and can say without hesitation that any family would be lucky to have her!"
