Doula Care, Childbirth Education + Doula Mentorship and Business Support

“When parents take my class my goal is that they leave feeling confident in their ability to make the choices that feel right for them. I want them to feel safe to explore their options and know they have support regardless of what they choose. When I work with a family during the postpartum period I want them to feel safe to make the choices that feel best for them. I will always provide evidenced based information and I will support you through your journey as you choose what is best for you.”  – Maria Pyanov, CPD, CCE

As a mother to five children, Maria has experienced a variety of birth, postpartum and lactation experiences. However, one thing was the same in all of her experiences, true support helped her to have positive birth experiences and smoother postpartum adjustments. That’s why Philadelphia Area Doula Care and Childbirth Education provides a variety of services from preconception all the way through to the postpartum period.

With each of her experiences and her professional training, Maria saw a need for childbirth education and support,  as well as ongoing postpartum and lactation support. Since the birth of her first son, she has provided education and support to hundreds of local families. In 2015, she became a part of the BellyBelly team to help educate and support millions of families world wide.

She has also worked with the International Doula Institute and BirthWorks to help develop doula and childbirth educator trainings.
