IsabellA, Birth Doula, HypnoBirthing® Childbirth Educator, Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC)
I was drawn to birth work through curiosity and intrigue. I could not have anticipated the beautiful, empowering nature of birth and all it encompasses. 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 pregnancy and childbirth an beyond.
As your birth doula I combine visualization and 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 labor, postpartum and breastfeeding basics.
In 2017 I lived Tel Aviv, Israel where I led reproductive health workshops for people in various stages of their reproductive journeys. 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!
