Our Doulas

Maria Stevenson

Postpartum Doula
DSC_7683Available Sundays and Mondays, days and nights.

My idea of being a doula is to provide you and your family a “helping hand” and make your transition to parenthood as easy and comfortable as possible. As a Doula I will provide you with physical, emotional and educational support in the comfort of your own home.

I was trained as a neo-natal RN in my home country of Brazil and worked in pediatrics for 10 years. Upon moving to the United States, I worked as a Nanny for several years in San Diego and I am still involved with this family. For the past 19 years, I’ve worked with the elderly and have recently transitioned back to the field of infant care, where I started my career many years ago. I am very loving, reliable, patient, always on time and an excellent cook! I am fluent in Portuguese, English, Spanish and speak a little Italian.

“Maria is very knowledgeable with newborn techniques and pays attention to even the smallest of details. Even though I am already a mother to a 3.5 year old, I still learned new things from her. My 3.5 year old son loves Maria. She took the time to build a relationship with him and is very patient. She is awesome!” ~~~ Ana Lidia

“Maria is so cheerful, polite, motherly, caring and an absolute joy to have around. She’ll bring a smile to your face. We love every time Maria comes to help us. She is so amazing with our son, which helps us to be able to relax.” ~~~~ Deanna
