My years of supporting women in birth as a childbirth educator and doula in just about every setting -hospital birth, home birth, water birth, VBAC, HBAC- have given me firsthand knowledge of the many variations of labor, deepening my understanding of the birth process. But birthing my own two children, one completely naturally, was my biggest teacher. And as a licensed acupuncturist, I can enhance the traditional doula role by using my expertise to strengthen mother’s energy if it wanes, help her relax deeper and ease discomforts with acupuncture, acupressure, and tui na massage.
I love all things pregnancy and birth. Birth is wondrous and one of the most sacred of passages. It is also just something women do. As I guide you and your partner in trusting your body and the birth process, I nurture in you the confidence that this is what your body was made to do, that birth works. For me, this is a labor of love. I have been helping Long Island and Manhattan couples joyously birth their babies since 2007. I invite you to contact me for an initial meeting so we can determine if we are a good fit. References available upon request.
