I just wanted to recommend to all you NY pregnant ladies an amazing doula. She is based in Staten Island but she will travel to Manhattan and possibly NJ and or Brooklyn if you ask her. She was incredible before the birth, preparing us with lots of great information about stages of labor, what to expect, exercises to get your body ready for birth, information about breast feeding, types of medical intervention, etc. She was amazing during labor and was very calm and reassuring. She diffused calming and energizing essential oils, gave me massages and was just really encouraging especially when I needed her most. And she has been very supportive on post natal support as well. Call her or email her and ask for a consultation. Her company is called Tribe of Mine.
Re: Highly recommend Doula, Renee Pizzuto
On SI and have heard of her. Can you give me some info on her pricing? What services she offered?
