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.

Jeanette Samyn

Birth Doula

Postpartum Doula

As a birth and postpartum doula, I draw from my experience as a parent, teacher, and academic researcher: I work to guide you through the overwhelming amount of information available to parents, and empower you to figure out what feels right for you, without judgment. I’ve learned that it’s easier to build lasting strength and resilience when you are well informed about your options and have trust in your team.

Lactation Counselor (CLC)

Antepartum Doula

Hi....I'm MomTown. And I am here for you. I want to take care of you as you plan for your baby’s arrival, to educate you on what birth can be, be with you while you are having your baby, and be there for you when you bring your baby home (and for lots of time beyond). I'm also very invested in your mental well-being along the way. Because I know taking the time to have your needs met gives you strength to take care of your family. MomTown is for moms. MomTown is for dads. MomTown is for people who are curious about being parents. MomTown is for non-binary parents who don't go by mom or dad. MomTown is for gender fluid parents who go by both mom and/or dad (and every other name they choose to be called). MomTown is for people who identify as unicorns. MomTown is for people who believe the moon landing was a US government conspiracy (though I'll probably argue with you about that). Basically, MomTown is for everyone. I am a certified birth and postpartum doula, Certified Lactation Counselor and Childbirth Educator in training. I am also currently pursuing a Masters in Social Work, focusing on both perinatal mental health and family leave policy development. I volunteer for Postpartum Support International as a helpline operator.

Amber Star Merkens

Postpartum Doula

Newborn/Parenting Educator

Lactation Counselor (CLC)

Most of my life was spent in the performing arts, traveling the world with a dance company, and photographing my journeys. But having children shifted my perspective and revealed a new calling. I wanted to create the community and support that I myself longed for around as a new mother. Through my own story, and those of women around me, I came to understand the significance of what is probably the most profound, yet so often undervalued, life change a person can experience - the transition into motherhood, and parenthood. It’s the birth that comes after childbirth. Just like childbirth, the “4th trimester” is an intense, life altering, and vulnerable time when we are born as as mothers and fathers. We question everything as we find our new normal, learn and grow in unfathomable ways, and are catapulted into the unknown. It is a time when we need others to encourage us, advocate for us, lift us up, and celebrate with us. My passion and joy lies in providing a safe haven for families, giving them the compassion and unconditional support they deserve as they navigate all the newness. I am am grateful to have have been working intimately with families for almost a decade, and I look forward to working with many more.
