You're here because you're having a baby and thinking about hiring a birth doula, postpartum doula, or you're interested in Lamaze childbirth education class, right? Do you live in the Albany/Schenectady/Troy, NY area (or one of the counties nearby)? Perfect! You're in the right place!
Take a look around and then send me a message with any questions you have about Lamaze class, birth doula support, or postpartum doula services. Thank you for stopping by!
In our Lamaze childbirth education classes, you will receive evidence-based information which will prepare you to have the kind of empowered birth experience you were meant to have.
A private Lamaze class means the class will be focused on your needs for labor, birth, and early postpartum. You are unique and your class should be as well.
A postpartum doula is someone who is trained to support parents after a baby is welcomed into their home. This can be through birth or adoption.
Postpartum doulas do:
Parents provide the care for the baby. We provide the care for the parents.
A birth plan is a useful tool no matter how many times you have given birth.
The act of writing a birth plan helps you understand some of the things that come up during birth rather than learning about them for the first time when you are in labor.
The act of sharing a birth plan with your midwife, doctor, partner, and doula shows them that you are educated and prepared to be in charge of your birth.
Families who hire a birth doula are:
If you have any questions or would like to schedule an interview (free of charge) to discuss birth doula services, postpartum doula services, Lamaze childbirth education, or writing a birth plan, send me a message!
I am a mother of one who lives just outside Albany, NY with her husband, son, two dogs, and one cat.
I became a doula in 2017 and a Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator in 2018!
I became a doula and childbirth educator because I believe in supporting families as they make their way through this most incredible time in their lives.
I'm thrilled to be teaching Lamaze classes, and offering birth and postpartum doula services in Albany and it's surrounding towns and cities!
I attend births at the following hospitals:
Bellevue Woman's Center
St. Peter's Hospital Albany
Burdett Birth Center
Albany Medical Center
Glens Falls Hospital
Nathan Littauer Hospital*
I will attend a home birth at any home in Albany, Schenectady, Saratoga, Schoharie, or Rensselaer counties. I will attend a home birth if a midwife is present.
Not planning to give birth in the places listed above but would still like to talk about doula support? Send me a message! I’m easily persuaded to travel further! Mileage fees apply.
My classes, including birth plan consultations, will travel anywhere!
*I will attend births at these hospitals from April - November
