Michael Eisenstein

Fitness Coach

I have been a personal trainer for 12 years and have worked with every kind of client from the morbidly obese, to those recovering from an injury, to those just looking to stay in shape, to elite athletes training for competition. That said, none of my work has been as rewarding as the pre- and postnatal training I have done. I came to training through my martial arts practice and had no pre- or postnatal training experience when my very first client got pregnant. I went straight to Barnes and Nobles and after some time there, picked up "The Pilates Pregnancy" by Mari Winsor. I was hooked. I've always known I wanted to be a father (well okay, just since I was seven) and studying pregnancy from a personal training perspective was fascinating and something I became very passionate about. When it came time to renew my CPT certification, I opted for the Women's Health certification that covered pre- and postnatal training. I have maintained the certification and taken the course whenever it has been offered through the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM). Over the years, I have helped six women (including my wife) through their pregnancies. Once they have been cleared by their doctor to begin working out again, I have then helped them regain their bodies. I am completely in awe of what women's bodies are capable of and struck by the fact that no two pregnancies are, or will ever be, the same. My wife and I made the decision that having a home birth was the best option for us and after being there every step of the way for the 15 hours of labor I can honestly tell you there was no greater moment in my life than when my son was born. My wife was incredible. Our midwife actually told me while my wife was pushing that "she'd never seen a first time mom instinctively know how to push like that." Now don't get me wrong, my wife did ALL the work, but I would like to think all of the work we had done together getting her ready to push played some small role in how well prepared she was when the time came.

Lisa Taylor

Childbirth Educator

Birth Doula

I came to birth work on the other side of giving birth to my two babies in 2005 and 2008. Along that journey, my eyes were opened to a few things: 1) how beautiful, normal, and transformative the process of birth is but 2) how too many women and couples have a negative or, worse, traumatic experience in giving birth due to the way our U.S. maternal health care system operates. On the other side of being fortunate enough to have become well-equipped to navigate this environment and therefore having positively transformative experiences with both of my babies' births, I "caught the birth bug" and wanted to be an instrument of encouragement and advocacy for women and families toward amazing, positive birth experiences, and I've been joyfully doing birth work ever since 2010. One area of particular passion I have in my teaching is placing specific emphasis on helping couples to deepen and enrich their relationships in pregnancy to be strategically positioned in a healthy way for the challenges and stresses having a baby can put on a marriage/committed relationship.

Elina Arulraj

Physical Therapist

Lactation Consultant (IBCLC)

My first profession was as a Physical Therapist however after 10 years of practicing in all disciplines including Women's Health for many of those years, I came to realize and find my true passion, Lactation Consulting. It was through my sister's struggles trying to nurse premature babies that I initially realized my love for this profession and I wanted to get certified to help as many new and seasoned Moms as I could. It wasn't until I had my own that I came to understood the real commitment it takes, the struggles you have and the desire to do your absolute best for these new little lives you are responsible for. I have been a International Board Certified Lactation Consultant since 2009 and working to empower Moms and helping babies breastfeed since 2007. Together with my husband, I am the proud Momma of exclusively breastfed twin boys and a girl.
