Dr. Maisha McStuffins is the beautiful wife of Marcus McStuffins, the mother of Doc and Donny and the adoptive mother of Maya. She sometimes has Doc to volunteer for her when there's a patient to help, either toy or person. She is a recurring character in season 1-3 and a guest character in season 4 and 5
The original Arabic name ميشا is actualyl derived from Aisha. Dr. Taylor's reference to "life's blessing" relates to a separate etymology for the simpler-spelled "Maisha" which translates to "life" from African origins.
In addition to her beauty, Dr. McStuffins is mostly compassionate and motherly, but when there's a patient in need, she always remains sweet and friendly to them, if the patient is a person, but when Doc is stuck on a hard case when there's a toy to fix, her mother always helps her with some advice or help to fix the toy.
Dr. McStuffins is a slender African-American woman and wears a green long-sleeved shirt and denim jeans. She is often seen wearing a white lab coat just like Doc. She has curly brown hair, brown skin, and brown eyes. On Christmas Day at the end of "A Very McStuffins Christmas" she wore a green sweater with snowflakes embroidered all around it at the bottom. The sleeves and collar are red.

- ACEP Now interview with Myiesha Taylor 15 October 2017:
When I was talking to Chris, I said, “Wow, you should name the mom Myiesha!” I went into what the meaning of Myiesha is. It’s Arabic, and it means “life’s blessing.” I was totally joking with her. Some months later, she called me and said, “You’ll never guess what happened.” I asked, “What? What happened?” She said, “You’ll see tomorrow on the press release.” They named her Maisha because she didn’t have a name before then. So now Doc McStuffins’ mom’s name is Maisha McStuffins. So that’s kind of cool.
