Doula + Ayurveda + Wellness
Mary A Whitlock is a NYC based postpartum doula and a health + wellness coach whose philosophy is that a healthy foundation is a catalyst for a healthier future.
Our families loved her! Mary’s knowledge, understanding and sensitivity to the unique needs and difficulties faced by Mammas and families in the antenatal, perinatal and the postpartum period make her an amazing doula! I know that she will be an amazing resource in her community, and Moms and families will be lucky to have her as a Postpartum Doula!
Mary was highly recommended to me by a mutual acquaintance. I have a toddler and knew I would need assistance balancing my newborn’s needs with those of my toddler and myself. Mary was a tremendous help in this regard. She helped me get my daughter ready for daycare and also assisted in bringing her there and picking her up. (I ended up having an emergency C section, so this was especially helpful in my situation.) My daughter loved Mary and looked forward to her arrival every morning. In addition to helping care for myself and my children, Mary also introduced me to Ayurveda and cooked nutritious meals for me. This was especially helpful as I recovered from mastitis. Even as a second time mom, I would not have been able to adequately care for myself and my children without Mary’s help during the first eight weeks postpartum. She was an absolute blessing and I would highly recommend her to any new mom. I honestly cant imagine a better postpartum doula.
I would recommend people to Mary if they need a gentle guide through the first steps of motherhood. Having Mary around was invaluable and she helped me find my feet as a new Mom in a truly kind and loving way.
I approached Mary because I was looking for holistic ways to deal with stress and anxiety. Mary introduced me to Ayurveda and helped me to identify ways to overcome these feeling that were starting to hold me back. After a short assessment, Mary identified trends and provided gentle guidance on things that I could do to help improve my mental and physical wellbeing. With Mary’s help, I began to incorporate different techniques that ranged from eating, meditation, massage, herbal supplements and spices, exercise and essential oils. I’ve seen a remarkable improvement in my mental state since working with Mary. Instead of feeling stressed and exhausted all the time, I’m learning to relax and work with a clear, strong mind. I couldn’t have done this without Mary’s patient, loving and concentrated care. I highly recommend her support and services to anyone dealing with similar issues or just looking for a sense of peace. I feel very fortunate to know and work with Mary.
Mary is deeply intuitive and calming to be around. Our family always appreciated her company; she radiates positive energy! After having our 2nd child I finally understood why they say it takes a village.. I felt so fortunate to have Mary’s encouragement and support at that time- she always made it feel manageable and helped ground us. I would highly recommend her to any moms to be. She will help restore balance and serenity to you and your home.
