Michelle G.

Yoga Instructor Support Group Facilitator Birth Doula Newborn/Parenting Educator
I support women through their pregnancy, labor, birth and postpartum recovery by teaching prenatal and postpartum yoga, well care workshops, and by offering birth support. As a young girl growing up in NM I found that riding horses gave me a sense of calm that I later found on my yoga mat. I began practicing yoga in 2000, since my daughter was born in 1998, I had not yet discovered how yoga would enhance my pregnancy. With my son’s birth in 2003 I could tell the benefits of yoga as my pregnancy progressed. At this point I knew I wanted to share my experience with other women. This is why I’ve dedicated myself to teaching prenatal & postpartum yoga, lead well care workshops, & offer birth support. I love helping mothers connect with their babies through yoga and watching babies & children respond to its soothing calm and peacefulness. I’ve finally found my passion in assisting women through the full spectrum of well care from pregnancy to recovery in the postpartum period.

Lisa T.

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.

Yael B.

Baby Feeding Specialist Birth Counselor Birth Doula Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) Newborn/Parenting Educator
My love for pregnancy, birth, babies and families has been a part of me for as long as I've been me. Growing up in Oregon to Argentinian parents, I was led to believe that pregnancy, birth, and breastfeeding were all normal parts of being a human. I was confused by the more hushed attitudes regarding these things once I moved to the Northeast as a teen, and resolved to go to nursing school in order to work in women’s health care, promoting the normalcy and power of birth and parenthood. After 5 years working as Postpartum RN and IBCLC at New York Presbyterian Hospital-Weill Cornell, I stepped away to devote myself to my own business, Born Knowing. As a doula, birth assistant, and lactation consultant, I am best able to use my clinical RN knowledge without any time limit to provide continuous, uninterrupted support to women and families in labor. Having recently joined forces with Elizabeth Perez, of Expecting Wonder, I am thrilled to expand my community and my offerings as part of a fantastic team of doulas.

Jessica V.

Antipartum Doula Birth Counselor Birth Doula Childbirth Educator Lactation Counselor (CLC) Postpartum Doula Pregnancy Coach
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.

maeva a.

Childbirth Educator Birth Doula Pregnancy Coach Hypnotherapist
I am a HypnoBirthing® Childbirth Educator, a Spinning Babies® Parent Educator, a hypnotherapist and a birth doula. I became a certified Hypnotist in 2009. I always knew the mind and body are interconnected. As I prepared for my own transition into motherhood, I discovered HypnoBirthing - the Mongan Method. Through this practice, and as I worked with parents, I organically grew into birth doula work. After witnessing a particularly difficult birth, I found and trained in the Spinning Babies approach. My doula work completely changed after that. I learnt how to assess when there was an imbalance and help balance the body before and during birth. I continue to learn with every new birth and every parent I work with. I am motivated by my own experiences and inspired by the experiences of the parents I work with.

Jeanette S.

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.

As the proud mother of three terrific adults, and granma to two spectacular grandkids, I bring everything I've done before to my work as a birth doula.
