Hello, my name is Krista Maltais. I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Family Studies from the University of New Hampshire, am an Advanced Postpartum Doula (AdvPCD) and Postpartum Doula Trainer (PDT) with DONA International, and am the author of my newly published children’s book “My Baby, Our Doula, & Me” – A Book About Postpartum Doula Support For Sibling & Family Adjustment.
Additionally, I am an Advanced Lactation Counselor with the Academy of Lactation Policy and Practice, Founder of Relief Parenting Respite and Resource Center, LLC and Owner of Relief Doula Agency.
I have been a member of DONA International since 2006 and have served on the Current Trainers Sub-Committee, written several pieces for the International Doula Magazine, and have fulfilled the role of Director of Membership for our organization since July 2023. I am passionate about our organization’s professionalism, commitment to high-caliber training, thorough certification process, and reputable global influence.
When I am not training doulas, supporting parents, running my small business, and fulfilling DONA International commitments, I love snuggling up on the couch with my husband and our two boys, completing puzzles, fantasizing about all the places I want to travel to, and spending time outside.
