About Maria

I am married to Michael and have two grown up children. We live in Cheshunt, Hertfordshire with our little mini–Dachshund Percy.

I love spending time with my family, going for walks, meeting new people and I love the work I do for the National Childbirth Trust as an antenatal teacher and before this as a nanny since 1992.

about maria

Having over 20 years’ experience supporting families with new babies I am passionate about delivering a high level of emotional, physical, and practical support as your Doula, enabling you and your partner (if you have one) to focus on each other and the baby.

Every person’s birth journey is unique, and life changing, and I will put you and your family’s experience of pregnancy, labour, and birth at the heart of everything I do. 

As a Birth Doula I cover Hertfordshire, North London, South Cambridge and the surrounding areas such as Hertford, St Albans, Barnet, Welwyn Garden City, Harpenden,  Bishops Stortford, Harlow, Cheshunt, Ware, Stevenage, Watford, Hampstead, Finchley and East London to name a few.

My background and qualifications

I qualified as an NNEB Nursery Nurse in 1992 and this is where my love for all things family, children and babies began. I worked for over 20 years with many families, nurturing and encouraging their children to become the adults they are today. I have also run my own nanny agency and I am super organised so you can feel reassured I will always be there when you need me.

I have a foundation degree in Birth and Beyond from the University of Worcester which is connected to the National Childbirth Trust (NCT). Through the course I became an antenatal teacher, yoga for pregnancy instructor and NCT Birth Doula.

Through Yoga for Pregnancy, I became interested in how a woman’s body anatomy can help or hinder the birth process. In exploring this I have studied the art of the Rebozo with Sophie Messenger, Spinning Babies® with Gail Tully, and the Biomechanics for Birth with Optimal Birth.

I am a Member of Doula UK and hold a license to practice with The NCT follow their code of conduct.
