I like to think of myself as a BirthKeeper, one who is dedicated to support and walk with women who want to take charge and responsibility for their pregnancy, birth and postpartum experience. I believe in autonomy, freedom and being true to oneself. I serve women with an open heart and deep respect for them, their story and their families.

I was giving birth in a foreign land, adrift from the motherly and sisterly support that I could have had back home. Maira was both my mother and sister during this critical period. My husband and I deeply appreciated her reassuring presence and support when I went into labour. It was a long labour but I felt secure and knew I was in good hands because she was with me at ever stage.
J'ai eu l'accouchement que je désirais car je m'y étais préparée et aussi car je savais que j’étais bien entourée et ceci en partie grace a elle.
"I had the birth that I desired because I prepared myself for it and also because I knew I was well supported, and this was partially thanks to her".
I knew that I would need a mother to help me in the moments I would become a mother; and I would be half a world away from my own. Hiring Maira as my doula was not only the best decision I made in a season of multiple major life changes, but her presence was a gift to me. Her steady strength was calming and empowering.
“Women do better in childbirth in a warm, safe place, where they do not feel watched or judged, with the help of a mother or trusted mother-figure to help them.”
