Chantal Traub

Birth Doula

Postpartum Doula

Pregnancy Coach

Childbirth Educator

Newborn/Parenting Educator

Yoga Instructor

Fitness Coach

Birth Counselor

Health Coach

I am an active birth doula, childbirth educator, pre/postnatal yoga teacher and MUTU® Systems trainer. I have been assisting expecting families in the New York Metro area since 2003. What I have found from going to hundreds of births is that women are often under prepared for the 2nd Stage of Labor; The Pushing Part. Which may contribute to many hours of ineffective pushing, preventable tearing, medical interventions or sometimes a cesarean. I developed my Pushing Power classes to help inform and prepare for effective pushing and optimal recovery. I am passionate about helping moms prepare both body + mind for a positive birth experience and assist them to make a full recovery postpartum. I am a Certified Childbirth Educator (LAMAZE and Childbirth Education of Metropolitan New York, of which I am a current board member) and Doula. I am also Certified in both Pre/Postnatal Yoga and is a Certified MUTU® Systems Pro.

Rebekah Rosler

Fertility Specialist

Birth Doula

Postpartum Doula

Antepartum Doula

Feel free to call me your Fertility Coach, your Motherhood Counselor, your Life Doula, or simply, your Friend. Thirty-something wife and mom of a three-year-old and a set of almost two-year-old twins, (in)fertility warrior, community builder, supporter, friend, connector, counselor, advocate, doula, Licensed Master of Social Work based out of Manhattan. After embarking on my own path to becoming a mother, something in me shifted. My passions, my identity, my purpose all took on new meanings. I realized how lonely it can be for those without community, support, or someone in their corner to guide them. From that moment I realized I wanted to help women setting out in this chapter of their lives-- whether they are struggling with infertility (as I did), pregnancy challenges, miscarriage or infant loss, life as a new mom, or all the spaces in between. I am particularly passionate about normalizing infertility, postpartum challenges, pressures associated with social media, breastfeeding and everyday struggles balancing life with infants and toddlers. I aim to add humor and my own personal reality to these and other parenting topics with the hope that it makes women understand they are not alone. I am in the trenches with you and we’re all just doing our best. My best, your best, is good enough. After co-founding a business, Mom MeetUps, that provided New York City moms with social gatherings and online forums, I have now chosen to offer personalized, one-on-one support to individuals looking for a safe space, a sounding board, and a knowledgeable resource on the journey to and through motherhood. In summer 2019 I will also be leading monthly, in-person support groups for women who are in the midst of their fertility journey. I could not be more thrilled to finally launch this endeavor. It’s been a long time in the works. After taking many different paths to get here, yet always working in the “mom space” with any spare moment I had, this is the exact right moment in my life to make this happen. With inspiring women surrounding me, a deep network of fertility warriors, members of my mom tribe, and my truly supportive friends and family, It’s Conceivable, by Rebekah Rosler, is born.

Felicia Sokol

Birth Doula

my deep call to birth work started with knowing that our bodies, as women and birthing folk, are innately knowledgeable and intuitive. an empowered birth experience brings us back to this. i am in service to women (and their partners), so that they may experience their birth feeling safe, supported, and empowered, no matter what their preferences are. i am here to support whether that’s in a hospital with an epidural or at home with a midwife. every birthing woman comes from an epic lineage of birthing women. i honor this transformational transition in a women’s life with deep reverence and i adapt to meet her (and her partner’s) needs. as a shamanic reiki practitioner, i am sensitive to the nuances of such an intimate environment and i believe that holding space is a gentle act. i bring such qualities, along with humor, education, and broadmindedness to all my clients. every birth is different and every birthing person has different preferences. it's all about informed decision making: education + intuition. currently, i am near finishing my DONA Certification. i am a Birth Worker supporting Hypnobirthing and embarking on a Spinning Babies intensive.

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.

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.
