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.

Antepartum Doula

I am a Certified Health Coach, Ayurvedic Chef + Doula specializing in postpartum care and Ayurvedic wellness. My philosophy is that a healthy foundation is a catalyst for a healthier future. After struggling with hormonal issues and anxiety, I was determined to find balance and heal. I adopted a regular Ayurvedic practice incorporating, daily meditation, breathwork, yoga and healthy eating into my life which had such a transformative effect that it moved her to study under some of the most influential Ayurvedic teachers in the US and India, including Vasant Lad founder and director of the Ayurvedic Institute, the National Ayurvedic Medical Association's Hilary Garivaltis, The Institute of Culinary Education’s Richard Lamarita, and Vaidya Dr. A.V. 'Krishna' Raju. I completed my DONA Postpartum and Birth Doula training with the renowned Debra Pascali-Bonaro, followed by an internship at, Healthy Mother & Natural Birth Sanctum in Hyderabad, India- an affiliate clinic of the International MotherBaby Childbirth Organization. There I provided gentle birth and postpartum support to women under the guidance of Dr. Vijaya Krishnan and some of the leading midwives in the country. My experience at the clinic was so heartfelt and life-changing that it motivated and inspired me to work towards improving maternal and infant health and create a ripple effect of positive change for a brighter future.
