Maria Tamayo

Certified Birth Doula

Warm, intuitive, and knowledgeable; Maria has worked with children and families for many years, following her passion in caring for others. She came to Toronto in 2011 and here is where she finally decided to fulfill her love for women, babies, and birth. After Maria attended her first birth as a Doula, she knew that it was not only what she wanted to do but what she was supposed to do. She found her true calling.

For her, witnessing the transformation that women go through, together with their partners is beautiful. Witnessing and being a part of the miracle of birth is a privilege. With ample professional training and a gentle spirit, Maria guides and supports her clients through their pregnancy, birth and postpartum experience. Her intention as a doula is to create a calm, loving, compassionate, joyful and empowering space to make their experience the best that it can be.

Every pregnant person, baby, and birth are unique, and her work involves respecting and encouraging her client’s natural rhythms and needs. Maria is a Certified Birth Doula (DONA), Postpartum Doula and Childbirth Educator. She does Placenta Encapsulation and teaches prenatal yoga. She is also a Certified Maternity and Child Sleep Consultant. To learn more about Maria and the services she provides visit
