Maria Borodovskaya, Labor Doula, Birth Photographer

“The whole point of woman-centered birth is the knowledge that a woman is the birth power source. She may need, and deserve, help, but in essence, she always had, currently has, and will have the power.” ~Heather McCue

The baby in their mother’s womb has only his/her instincts and maybe the mother’s emotions to rely on. The mother however is in a different position and has many sources of information. A doula is a valuable source of information for the mother preparing for the birth and a source of support in labor by helping the mother to do her best towards the fulfilling of her own vision of the birth. The birth can be empowering and inspiring for the woman as well as for the child. I would like to see more empowered women and happy babies on our planet, therefore I decided to begin my doula career.

I am certified as a Holistic Doula by Matrona and currently working towards my labor doula certification from Births Art International. I feel very lucky to have also completed an apprenticeship with the wonderful team of Labor of Love. I’m also a birth photographer! 
I’m a single mother of a beautiful preteen daughter who was born naturally and breastfed. When I gave birth to my daughter I realized how important it is to have the support of someone who believes in you and supports you in your choices and decisions regarding your birth experience and your child. Since that time, I wanted to become such a person.
I hope to be a good source of information for the woman preparing for the birth and help her to do her best in fulfilling her own vision of the birth. I look forward to having the honor of being a part of your birthing story.
