Copyright © 2014 Kayla Maltese 3Why Maven? A maven is “a trusted expert in a particular field, who seeks to pass knowledge on to others” (thank you Wikipedia); this is the foundation of my care philosophy. I believe it is important for me to continue to obtain knowledge by attending lectures, midwifery conferences, fine tuning my skills and reading current research studies so that I am better able to help empower my clients through education. This is an aspect of my job that I take very seriously.

However, I am also a down to earth, fun-loving person with a sense of humor. While creating my business name, I discovered that Maven is the name of Catwoman’s sidekick or “girl friday”. Ah Ha! Reading this made me laugh so hard with excitement! This is how I see my relationship with my clients during the prenatal, birth and postpartum period. I am your side kick, your supporter, a member of your team, whom is responsible for providing you excellent healthcare and education while supporting the individual needs and values of you and your transitioning family.
