Malia Aharoni: IBCLC, ACHI Master Doula, CD D.O.N.A
A love for the birth world and babies started with the birth of my son Dean 18 years ago. I was one of the unlucky ones in those days with out any support during pregnancy, birth or breastfeeding. After my birth I learned as much as I could about it all, and started to volunteer for anybody who needed it.
I had found my calling in this world. It has been 18 years and many many births later and I still find it to be the best job in this world!!! As a Master Doula and IBCLC Certified Lactation Consultant I have the honor of witnessing real miracles every day!
My passion is taking a mother all the way through...empowering her with knowledge and excitement during the pregnancy...watching and supporting her powerfully birth her baby....and finally nurturing those natural feminine instincts which give each mother confidence to fulfill all her babies needs.
Whether it is a high risk or low risk pregnancy, c-section or vaginal, multiples or premies, I look forward with excitement in helping you make your pregnancy, birth and post-partum a positive memorable experience, for you.
