Through Birthing From Within New York, I provide smart, compassionate preparation for and healing from the transitions that accompany the childbearing experience. I have a BA and MA from Columbia University; before entering the birth field, I was a public secondary school teacher for 8 years. I started in the birth world in 2008 as a birth doula, then added babywearing education, and then childbirth education. I have been with Birthing From Within since 2014. I work with parents who are seeking authentic support and education that is simultaneously intellectually rigorous, emotionally satisfying, and deeply creative. I offer group and private sessions in my teaching studio in central Harlem, in clients’ homes, and in other locations around NYC. I am LGBTQ+ friendly, and I love working with diverse families of all shapes and sizes. Sliding scale fees and payment plans are available when necessary.
