Michelle Goitia

Birth Doula

Newborn/Parenting Educator

Yoga Instructor

Support Group Facilitator

I support women through their pregnancy, labor, birth and postpartum recovery by teaching prenatal and postpartum yoga, well care workshops, and by offering birth support. As a young girl growing up in NM I found that riding horses gave me a sense of calm that I later found on my yoga mat. I began practicing yoga in 2000, since my daughter was born in 1998, I had not yet discovered how yoga would enhance my pregnancy. With my son’s birth in 2003 I could tell the benefits of yoga as my pregnancy progressed. At this point I knew I wanted to share my experience with other women. This is why I’ve dedicated myself to teaching prenatal & postpartum yoga, lead well care workshops, & offer birth support. I love helping mothers connect with their babies through yoga and watching babies & children respond to its soothing calm and peacefulness. I’ve finally found my passion in assisting women through the full spectrum of well care from pregnancy to recovery in the postpartum period.

Valencia Andrews

Birth Doula

Postpartum Doula

Placenta Arts Specialist

Antepartum Doula

My path to birthwork began years ago, by supporting friends and family members through their labor and delivery experiences. Although, I did not know of the transformative power of those experiences, at the time. Over time, my role and vision as a support person has grown immensely. As a birth and postpartum Doula, I offer compassion, a safe space and confidentiality for unpacking birth stories and early parenthood, emotional and physical support, and solid, educational information to new parents. With an overall wellness approach, I work to make my clients feel supported through learning holistic newborn care, nourished through postpartum meals and placenta encapsulation, heard during consultations, rested through sleep support and witnessed throughout pregnancy, the immediate postpartum and beyond. In addition to my trainings and certifications, my journey in birthwork continues to blossom through my participation in Manhattan Birth's mentorship program.

Antepartum Doula

Stephanie Heintzeler is a German educated midwife and acupuncturist as well as US-educated doula and Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). She was born in New York City but raised in Germany, where she found her enthusiasm for midwifery already when she was 12 years old- thanks to her brother who was born then. She successfully finished her midwifery-exam in 2000 at the midwifery-school in the Black Forest of Germany. While she was working in Frankfurt she started to get interested in TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) so she continued her education in Acupuncture and acquired her certification in 2003. She moved back to her birth town in 2003. Her book “New Yorker Geschichten” (“New York Stories”) got published and she started her own Doula business after she had certified with DONA in 2006. In 2010 she founded Preggie LLC in Germany that imports Preggie Pops (www.preggiepops.de) from the US. Stephanie cares for women with all kinds of births- whether her clients choose a hospital birth, birthing center or home birth; she wants them to follow their own intuition about which birth place feels best. Stephanie has seen it all- breech births, many successful VBACs (Vaginal Birth after Cesarean), planned and unplanned c-sections, vaginal twin births and LGBTQ-families. With a former midwife-approach her clients feel taken care of from a holistic-medical perspective. She uses breathing techniques and positions to open the pelvis as well as her acupuncture background to make birthing as comfortable as possible. As of 2018 Stephanie has delivered over 2,500 babies and attended over 3,000 births. She is the owner of the New York Baby where she puts expecting parents/mothers in touch with doulas and baby nurses.

Ashley Hocutt

Physical Therapist

I'm a mom of 2 spirited girls, lover of yoga and hot/humid weather. I live in NY, but am a FL girl at heart. I believe that moms deserve to have amazing prenatal and postpartum care and my passion for pelvic floor PT started after my own transformation in mom life. For the past 5 years I've helped moms like you birth easier, heal postpartum and exercise without peeing their pants. Seeing moms transform from fearful of what's happening to their body to confidence in their privates and being able to make informed decisions about their life is amazing. Being able to spread the knowledge and power to the patient is why I do what I do.

Dawn Johnson

Psychologist

I believe that a parent's well being is critical to their child's care. Many of my clients are struggling with the transition to parenthood - identity and lifestyle changes, fertility, pregnancy anxiety, work/life balance, and navigating shifting roles and relationships with their partner. More experienced parents often feel such pressure to be an invariably calm, nurturing, patient educator and guide, leading to so much anxiety, doubt and self-blame when they feel they are falling short. My work is to help patients better understand their thoughts, feelings, behaviors and history, as well as the life and family they want to build, so we can move towards a happier, healthier existence for you and your children. I also have expertise in anxiety/panic and body image/eating concerns.

Charlotte Hogarth

Childbirth Educator

Hypnobirthing Educator

Pregnancy Coach

Midwife

Newborn/Parenting Educator

Postnatal Educator

I have been a midwife for 10years and am still very active in my local hospital, currently working between the ward and birth suite. I am involved with a number of home birth midwives as well providing support and constantly learning where able. I am a mum of 3 little boys and it was their births that reinforced the need for education and preparation for birth in pregnancy, not only physically but mentally and emotionally. I have been a private educator for a number of years now and love the connections and beautiful results I get working with families.
