Hello, I'm Maira! I have been working with children for over six years. My passion of taking care of kids began when I decided to be a volunteer in a daycare working with newborns. This experience prompted me to become a certified Birth and Postpartum Doula. I enjoy helping and support families in their new parenting journey. My ultimate goal is allow parents to rest during this period while giving them a sense of security that their precious newborn is in good hands. I am proud to provide a safe, informative and loving environment.

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!"

"Maira is amazing! We had Maira as our postpartum night doula for three months. She started with us when we brought our baby girl home. She is calm, comforting presence, great communication, and have taken really good care of our baby at night so that we could get some sleep and a needed rest. She is very skilled in newborn care, responsible and professional. She was always on time and go above and beyond. We are so grateful for the ways she had helped our family in this huge time of transition. Can't recommend her highly enough!"

"My husband and I hired Maira as a postpartum night doula for three nights per week over a three-month span starting from when our son was two days old. Throughout her time with our family, she demonstrated skills and knowledge that made her an excellent postpartum night doula. Before our son was born, she came to our house to meet us in-person and to review our nursery and ensure that we had all the proper supplies ready for the baby's homecoming. She advised us on what and which products were necessities and which were nice-to-haves. We appreciated her practical approach. Maira was always punctual, and on the rare occasion that she couldn't find parking or the weather was causing delays, she would notify us that she was running a few minutes late. She wore a mask every time she came to our home and was diligent about testing herself for covid. When her schedule allowed it, she was flexible with us if we needed to make a change in hours or days. During her shifts, Maira primarily helped us with the overnight feedings; she would wake me up at feeding times (for me to nurse), burp the baby, change the diapers, and settle him down back to sleep. She also offered to clean bottles, pump parts, and fold the baby's laundry. Maira answered the many questions that we had as first time parents. Anything from day-to-day with a newborn and postpartum recovery. No question was too big or too small; when she didn't know the answer, she would research it for us and send us the information she found. She was a great resource throughout her time with us and she continues to stay in touch with us even though we're no longer her clients. We would highly recommend Maira as a postpartum night doula."
