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 daughters, ages 10 and 13. Her interest in childbirth education began during her pregnancy with her first child.
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 is also a member of the Long Island Doula Association, NY Metro Doula Group, Choices in Childbirth, Mother Friendly Childbirth Initiative and Birth Justice Warriors, where she makes a difference for women both publicly and privately. She enjoys volunteering as a birth doula, and a lactation counselor, and is a retired La Leche League Leader.
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.
