Doula NYC

Meet Maya

I discovered hypnobirthing during my own birth. As an experienced doula, I was looking for a birth preparation that would help me get out of my “thinking brain” and connect deeper with my body and instincts.

I had a beautiful birth experience and what I remember most is feeling calm and safe. My positive experience inspired me to become a hypnobirthing support doula.

I find that Hypnobirthing fits really well with my holistic doula approach, which is very much centered in nurturing the body-mind-emotional connection. I like to help expectant couples prepare for their birth with evidence-based information and positive, encouraging guidance so they can make decisions with confidence and intention.

I am also trained in comforting touch and relaxation techniques for birth and bring a grounding presence to the birthing room to help laboring mothers remain calm and centered during birth.

As a seasoned mother, I also enjoy supporting new families transition into a healthy and nourishing post-partum period and joyful life with a newborn, including with hands-on lactation support.

I do all of this with compassion, warmth and integrity.

Fun fact: I have six brothers and am the oldest and only girl in the family.

My certifications include: DONA Birth Doula Training, Certified Holistic Birth Doula, Comforting Touch Doula, Evidence Based Birth Professional, Hypnobirthing support Doula, and Certified Lactation Consultant.
