Maria Christina Gabriel

Maria supports women in times of change and guiding them through transformation is an essential part of her work as a mentor and doula.

Experiencing physical illness in her early 20s brought Maria on a search to find answers beyond her medical treatment. She wanted to understand the reason behind her illness to avoid it happening again.  Her answers brought her on the path of self-realisation in which she received teachings from teachers from Peru to Tibet and learnt to understand her own purpose. Most of her work is to honour these traditions and simultaneously create modern approaches.

When she became a Carriage House Birth Doula in New York years later, she had already guided families through all stages of transformational work and was grateful to integrate this sacred part. It felt like a missing piece to the puzzle. Pregnancy is such a divine experience and brings up so many physical, emotional and spiritual components. It’s a re-birth from maiden to mother and a rite of passage.

As a Doula, woman, and mother, Maria is called to educate and break the stigma around miscarriage and the often-forgotten miscarriage postpartum. She opens up the conversation around grief, pain, and surrender so healing can take place one day at a time.
