Maui Birth Waves
Mother Birth Waves supports families as they ride the waves through pregnancy, birth, and postpartum, offering doula services and Birthing From Within prenatal classes on Maui, Hawaii. Monique Paris holds certifications as a Birthing From Within mentor, doula, and lactation counselor.
I had the great fortune of being born on the island of Maui. I spent ten years on the east coast where I earned my Masters of Divinity from Harvard University. It was through the labor and birth of my first son born in 2000 that I first recognized the transformative power of birth. I am certified as a doula through the Association of Labor Assistants and Childbirth Educators and am also a Certified Lactation Counselor.
I have received advanced training as a Certified Birthing From Within Mentor from its founder, Pam England. I also serve as an advisor in the Birthing From Within program, guiding and helping other mentors serve parents and work towards certification. I love supporting parents on their journey towards becoming confident and excited about giving birth and becoming parents.
