“Childbirth is an experience in a woman’s life that holds the power to transform her forever. Passing through these powerful gates - in her own way- remembering all the generations of women who walk with her… she is never alone” — S. Arms
Hi there, my name is Maya Naftali, and I’m a certified Doula(DONA). I’ve been assisting women through this beautiful experience since I gave birth to my 2nd child. I decided to get help from a doula and it changed my life in a very profound way. I learned how to truly connect and understand the meaning of labor in a way I would never imagine.
