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.

'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.

Raven Thomas

Fertility Specialist

Breastfeeding counselor (CBC)

Birth Doula

Postpartum Doula

Cloth Diapering Educator

Antepartum Doula

I am a holistic birth-worker, certified breastfeeding specialist and natural parenting advocate. I assist women and families with fertility, prenatally, during labor/birth and postpartum. I entered into this work after my son was born, but it was the journey to conceiving him that brought me here. I went on a holistic healing journey after being diagnosed with infertility, PCOS and endometriosis. Doctors said that I would never be able to conceive naturally. I had this "crazy" faith that I could heal holistically, despite all the odds. I journeyed through learning a new way of living, and growing spiritually. Once I NATURALLY conceived my son, I started learning about alternatives to traditional baby products and a more gentle, natural parenting approach. This is how I became interested in all the things (such as baby wearing, attachment parenting, cloth diapering, etc!) I am very passionate about this work, as birth work is in my DNA. My great-great grandmother was a midwife in south Georgia. I am always thinking of ways to reach more people and educate other about the maternal mortality rate in the US. This work is my passion!
