Certified YBH Childbirth Educator & Birth Doula
Hi, my name is Lena and I have been a part of Your Birth Helper for 7 years now! It all started with being 24 weeks pregnant and in search of a Bradley Method® instructor and class. After the joyous experience of achieving the birth I trained mentally & physically for, then blossomed the love for natural childbirth. I knew in my heart that serving a birthing woman before, during, and after her pregnancy was something I needed to pursue. Fast forward, I have been a Certified YBH Doula & Childbirth Educator for 5 years. This has become both my passion and mission to change the way we perceive childbirth in the United States. I am highly skilled to assist with a multitude of variations throughout childbirth, be it drug free, low intervention, induction, epidural, etc. I have a background in fitness and believe that movement is key to the overall condition of you as a pregnant Woman and your developing baby. I love organizing long trail walks along the greenway, gritty hiking, or just a walk in the neighborhood. Anything to provide motivation. It also gives us time to breath and get to know one another. It is after all one of the most joyous moments of our lives and it is important you are comfortable with your support person. With the right tools and education, I am there to empower you every step of the way!!
