Mehri Shojaei

Postpartum Day & Night Doula

Hello! I am Mehri. I am from Iran and am Persian. At the end of the day, I am a mother of two teenagers,13 and16. In my home country, I have15 years of experience in early childhood education and development. Here in the Bay Area, I have worked in several home daycares and preschools and also as a professional nanny.

 

Originally, I studied Psychology in university but my passion working with special needs kids brought me to further pursue working as a postpartum doula. There is nothing that brings me more joy than supporting and helping families with their newborns. My support includes lite meal prep for mom, massage for mom and baby, and I also offer sibling doula services to help care for your other little ones as they adjust to the new addition to their family.

I cannot wait to meet you and guide you through this incredible parenthood journey!

Client Testimonials

We were first time parents who didn’t know what we were doing at all and we had just immigrated so didn’t have any family near us, so Mehri was a lifesaver for us. She helped us like a kind and caring mother. She always did things without us even asking her. For example, our baby’s room was always tidy, his clothes were clean  and she even cooked for us and the taste of her delicious food is still in my mouth. I was so lucky to met her specially at that time. Without her help and guidance, I might never have been able to even breastfeed or bathe my baby. She was like saving angle to our little family.

I am a first time mom and was very nervous about leaving my baby with anyone other than my family. I met Mehri when she was nannying for our neighbors’ son and, seeing her amazing bond with him, felt that my own son was safe with her. She is reliable, easy to schedule with, shows up on time, and prepared for anything. Mehri is very knowledgeable in child development, and makes sure that my son has nutritious meals and well timed naps. She is incredibly warm, thoughtful, and present. My son adores her and always asks for her the day after she cares for him. Mehri has shown the same loving kindness to me when I have struggled with new motherhood. I am so thankful to have had her support throughout this life change.
