Another sought after Postpartum Doula on our team is Maureen. Maureen is such a gem and is always making everyone laugh. You feel so comfortable around her, almost like you have known her for years or she is a memeber of your family. Maureen finds such love in helping other people. Doula-ing for her, brings out such fulfillment by helping families settle into their parent role. She loves having updates on “her” families even when she is not supporting them.
Maureen has such a draw to helping others. Prior to her work as a doula, she volunteered in Child, Youth & Family Services, with the Cradle Link Program.
Maureen’s hope is that she can make a positive difference in the lives of parents and families. Maureen puts family first and is definitely a big part of our Doula family!
