Beth, birth doula
Born in Oregon, Beth has lived in many places nationally and internationally but has been happy to call Brooklyn her home for almost 3 years. She is a birth doula and is currently in the process of obtaining her Birth Doula Certification from Carriage House Birth, as well as her Childbirth Educator certification from ICEA. Beth’s first impulse to pursue birth work was spurred after attending an Art of Hosting course in Sweden, where she began studying methodologies of radical space holding. Since completing her training, Beth has held and facilitated Women’s circles in Sweden and beyond, while working as a specialty coffee educator in New York City for the past 3 years. In addition to her background in facilitation, she studied classical music at the University of Glasgow and Portland State University and is a practiced comedic improviser.
Beth wholeheartedly believes that all birthing persons are deserving of, and possess the ability to birth with dignity and joy in their own unique, powerful and mysterious way. By providing evidence-based information, combined with her knowledge of healing touch, space holding, and comfort techniques, her aim is to provide care which is as individual and special as the birthing person themselves. From providing soothing counterpressure to making sure your labor playlist is at just the right volume, to making sure your birthing preferences are heard and held, Beth is caring and intuitive, and seeks to empower, above all else.
