ISABELLA, BIRTH DOULA, HYPNOBIRTHING® CHILDBIRTH EDUCATOR, CERTIFIED LACTATION COUNSELOR (CLC), CERTIFIED HYPNOTIST
In 2014 I had a transformative experience with hypnosis which indirectly led me to birth work, reproductive health & HypnoBirthing®. I could not have anticipated the beautiful and empowering nature of these fields. In 2017, I extended my practice to teaching HypnoBirthing Childbirth Education after doula-ing my first HypnoBirth. It was then that I became wholeheartedly convinced of the power of the mind-body connection during childbirth and beyond.
As your birth doula I combine hypnosis, visualization, breathing techniques, positive affirmations, and massage. Empowering you with evidence-based knowledge, I work professionally with your doctor or midwife and advocate for your birth preferences. During our prenatal visits we discuss comfort measures for labor, birth preferences, postpartum planning and breastfeeding/bottle feeding.
I was born and raised in NYC and hold a BFA in Painting from Rhode Island School of Design. I celebrate all family structures and birth choices and am honored to support expectant parents in my home city.
