Tier 1 Doulas

 
 

Meet Ana

I am a herbalist, artist, and doula who is especially excited about hypnobirthing. I love working with clients who are learning all they can and are thinking positively about their upcoming birth experience.

I was born and raised in New York City, but have spent time traveling upstate to learn holistic medicine, beekeeping, sheep farming, and wild harvest medicinal plants. My health work has focused mostly on nutrition, herbalism, reproductive health, birth support, gut and micro-biome balance and emotional well-being. My interest in femme and female healing from a non-western perspective combined with nurturing and caring for loved ones in and out of the hospital is what led me to become a doula.

 

 

 

 

Meet Brielle

Hi there HypnoBirthing mothers! I am a certifying doula with Doula Trainings International. I believe HypnoBirthing is an extremely rewarding set of tools to consider learning for labor. Releasing your fears around birth, learning to tune out your negative thoughts, and focus on the natural flow of your body just makes sense during this amazing process!

As your Birth Doula I will support you in every unique birth choice you have. I will work to maintain a safe and peaceful space for you to allow yourself to release and open up to your experience during labor. At your birth I will always remind you of the tools and birth preferences we have discussed in our prenatal meetings together.

My goal is to help you feel empowered and excited about your birth in a way that is unique and special to you. We will work together to create a plan using HypnoBirthing tools, massage, aromatherapy as well as position variations to help you stay relaxed and grounded throughout labor. Walking the path of a birth worker is a sacred privilege that I am truly honored to be apart of and I hope to walk this path with you!

 

 

 

 

Meet Jess

I discovered my affinity for all things related to birth and nurturing during my own pregnancy. When family, friends, and even friends of friends began coming to me for information and support in their birth, baby-wearing and nursing journeys, I realized this passion and call to serve was here to stay!

As a self-proclaimed geek, I have always been in awe of nature and the biology of the human body. This inspires my ongoing quest to foster wellness within myself and the community at large. I am a Labor Doula, Certified Childbirth Educator, Hypnobirthing Doula, and soon to be Certified Breastfeeding Counselor.

As a doula I hold the space for deep allowing. We use Hypnobirthing tools including visualizations, affirmations, breathwork and meditation, as well as hands on techniques, essential oils, and reiki. I am committed to respecting the intelligence of human design, evidence based information, and upholding client birth choices. As part of your birth team, together we use mindfulness and practical solutions as tools for self empowerment during the childbearing year and beyond.
