Having worked with many Hypnobirthing couples, I have witnessed, time and time again, how this technique helps the expecting couple approach labor and birth with confidence and ecstatic awareness. The result...a positive, peaceful, gentle and beautiful birthing experience for mom, partner and baby.
My name is Alicia and I would be delighted to support you in the amazing journey of childbirth. My work is greatly influenced by my studies in Body-Mind Centering, as well as my background in anatomy, kinesiology, physiology, and embryology education.
I am a DONA certified birth doula, a certified Breastfeeding Counselor, and a DONA trained postpartum doula. I have years of experience as a yoga therapist, specializing in prenatal and postpartum yoga, and am skilled in the use of breathing, acupressure, massage and Rebozo techniques for labor and delivery.
I have worked with women giving birth at home, birth centers, and hospitals all around the NYC area. I have supported a wide variety of birth experiences, including unmedicated, medicated, high-risk pregnancies, VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean), HBAC (home birth after cesarean), breech presentation, and C-sections. I am fully bilingual and at ease communicating in both English and Spanish.
My name is Lisa, CD(DONA). I live in Brooklyn, NY with my husband and two amazing children! I became a doula 4 years ago, but have had a passion for pregnancy and childbirth for as long as I can remember. Finally, I am living my dream of assisting women and their partners in the most life altering experience of their lives. It is an honor, and a privilege.
Hypnobirthing is an incredible way to experience the process of becoming parents. The births that I have attended where my clients have utilized Hypnobirthing have been by far the most calm and peaceful births. It's a wonder to witness! Happy birthing!
