My name is Maria Masvidal, I am certified Postpartum Doula, Breastfeeding Educator and IBCLC Certified Lactation Consultant.
I am also a certified nurse in Spain since 1993.
I have worked for many years in gynecology and obstetrics services in one of the main hospitals in Barcelona, Spain. I am married to Albert, who has always given me support in this passion. We are parents of young adults: two girls and a boy.
We have been living in the US since 2013 where
I have been offering at-home postpartum services since 2016.
"Maria helped us for 2 months after I gave birth to my twins during the Covid-19 pandemic and none from our families could come and help us.
She was so helpful and understanding, and made me feel secure and safe as if my own mother was there.
She prepared a lot of reading material and did a check list with us before giving birth, so that we would be prepared as best as possible.
After giving birth, she was there to give to me and to my husband some time to rest and recharge. But most importantly, she was the most gentle and sweet person to our little twins, she made them feel calm and she was the most patient and sweet guardian for them.
Maria you will always be part of our family!"

"Maria is very caring. She is also patient, kind, responsible and extremely organized.
We worked with Maria as a postpartum doula for the first 25 hours in the hospital, after our third child' was born. She was around when the baby and I needed care the most, and suggested best lactation techniques.
Maria was trained as nurse in Spain, and understands challenges a family welcoming their child may face. I felt confident the entire time Maria was supporting myself and the baby, and highly recommend her as a postpartum doula."

"I feel very lucky that Maria was my postpartum Doula. As a professional she is an excellent Doula who always patiently listened to all the doubts and concerns that I had as new mom. She guided me and provided the appropriate information for each situation, especially with the breastfeeding topic in which she has a lot of experience. As a human being, she is a great person that cared about my physical and emotional health. I will always be grateful for all her empathy, solidarity and support."

"Maria is very knowledgeble. In our first visit, she came prepared with lot of information on breastfeeding, baby related information, nutrition etc. I was very impressed by her knowledge and experience.
She helped us as post partum doula for 2 weeks after the baby was born. I needed her help the second day after baby was born and she came to the hospital directly as I needed her help urgently. Maria is very proactive and identifies herself how to help the baby and the family. She is a nice human being and very professional as well.
I will definitely recommend her to other families. I was very happy with her."

"I can't say enough good things about the support we received from Maria. She was extremely responsive and flexible with our schedule. Her expertise in breastfeeding and newborns was invaluable over the first few weeks as new parents. She helped us a ton during the first few weeks with our baby and helped make it a great experience for us. I would highly recommend Maria."

"Maria was an absolute gem in working with our 36 week twins. Her professionalism throughout the pregnancy and post partum was above and beyond. Her nursing background was important to me as I am in healthcare myself, I wanted someone with experience. Maria has a way to be patient and empathetic in what feels a crazy situation- her presence is calming. She was flexible with what worked for our family. She was comfortable with working with tiny babies, and her passion for infants was inspiring. She knew how to change, swaddle, feed, burp, put to sleep, etc etc as if the baby were her own. Both of our boys cherished her and if I have another baby, I would have her back with us in a heartbeat. I can not recommend her enough."
