Birth 1st was founded in 2006 by Elizabeth Cano-Correa.
Elizabeth is a Certified HypnoBirthing® Childbirth Education (CHCE), a Lamaze® Certified Childbirth Educator (LCCE), a DONA trained birth doula, a postpartum doula, and a Certified Consulting Hypnotist. She is married and is the mother of two girls, ages 12 and 9. Her interest in childbirth education began after her very own positive birth experience with her first daughter.
Elizabeth incorporates her experiences as a labor support doula to offer empowering and well-rounded prenatal classes. Elizabeth is a true advocate for childbearing women, their partners and their families. As a doula, she has supported numerous couples through a wide range of birth experiences. She has attended births in hospitals, birthing centers and home births throughout New York City and Long Island. In addition, Elizabeth has volunteered as a birth doula, and a lactation counselor, both privately, and as a group leader for women in need.
It is her goal to teach expectant mothers the full spectrum of possibilities as they prepare for the birth of their baby. Birthing can be approached with confidence by being fully prepared to respond in a positive way to your own personal birth experience.
