Cathy B.

Postpartum Doula Postpartum Chef Lactation Counselor (CLC)
I am a certified Carriage House/Birdsong postpartum doula and a certified breastfeeding consultant. In Chinese medicine, the future health of women and birthing people is linked to the kind of recovery they have after pregnancy and birth. Nourishment, rest and support facilitate a thorough revival. I believe the future of your relationship and your family are also impacted by this recovery period. As a postpartum doula I help every member of the family heal, acclimate and adjust. It is important that everyone in your family unit understands how to help, how to be included, how to stay connected. Oxytocin floods the body after delivery. It truly is a love hormone which can guide a birthing person with superhero maternal instincts. Many partners and siblings feel confused, sometimes even useless. I share evidence based techniques and information to help you all support each other. This way no one gets left behind and you build a strong base for your new family. Plus I bring sourdough bread because I love baking sourdough bread and find it to be a little bit of a metaphor for living. We need the village. We need generational guidance. We need support. We live in a culture that praises mothers and parents who power through and manage unassisted. Postpartum is a precious and exhuasting time, full of challenges that are hard to anticipate even if you are having a second or a third child. I tidy, I cook, I minister to the birthing person’s physical healing preparing herbal soaks and teas and specifically nourishing and healing foods, I share newborn soothing, feeding, sleeping and care techniques, I let you rest and find your way together. I mother you just in case your mother comes with extra baggage or she isn’t here.

Felicia S.

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.

Cara S.

Postpartum Doula Lactation Counselor (CLC) Antepartum Doula
I aim to support families in whatever their postpartum experience brings. This can include everything from baby care while you rest or shower, to preparing meals for your family, to taking out the trash (hey, someone's gotta do it!) As a certified lactation counselor, I love providing help and encouragement with breastfeeding, but I am equally happy to assist families who are formula feeding in the logistics of their journey. Everything I do, I aim to do with non-judgement, a helping hand, and a little laughter along the way! I love postpartum work because it allows me to witness and support the beauty that is a new family... in all it's chaotic, messy, love-filled glory. I enjoy providing hands on, everyday support for families along with emotional reinforcement. There are endless articles, opinions, gadgets and gear out there in the baby world, it's easy to get lost. Sometimes all you need is the support of a community, your intuition to guide you, and of course lots of love from your postpartum doula :-)

Sneha G.

Physical Therapist
I’m Dr. Sneha Gazi, and my passion is to improve people’s quality of life by decreasing bodily pain and dysfunction. I found my passion for physical therapy (PT) through my previous career as a professional dancer and certified yoga teacher. I am the Owner and CEO of Sneha Physical Therapy and currently serve the Greater New York area with home-based PT services. My specialties include Pelvic Health, Performing Arts, and TMJ. I specifically enjoy treating women with pre and postpartum issues such as incontinence, scar adhesions, diastasis recti, and pelvic pain. Giving back to the community, and to the world, is a strong value of mine. I began a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, Physical Therapy International Foundation, where I bring free PT services globally to underserved populations while teaching students in PT doctoral programs across the United States. Through my work in PT, Yoga, and Mindfulness, I wish to increase awareness of healthy body, healthy mind, and healthy lifestyles.
