Certified Birth Doula

Sari Fein (she/her)

Rachamah Doula Services

 

As a DONA-trained birth doula, I provide physical and emotional support and education to birthing people during pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period. It is my deeply held belief that there is no right or wrong way to bring a child into the world. My goal is to help you have a birth experience in which you feel listened to, supported, and empowered. I support all births, including births with an epidural, unmedicated births, and Caesarean births; whether in a hospital, birth center, or at home. I affirm all LGBTQIA+ families, am trauma informed, and am actively working to become anti-racist.


Why Rachamah? In Hebrew, “rachamah” (pronounced ra-ḤA-ma) is the feminine form of the word “rehem,” which means “womb.” This term is also often used as a verb meaning “to show compassion,” which is a guiding principle of my work as a doula.

Courtney Hill (she/her)

Window of Heaven Acupuncture & Yoga Inc.

I support pregnant women through pregnancy and in preparation for birth with herbs, acupuncture and gentle yoga instruction. The majority of my acupuncture practice is devoted to the lifelong postpartum period assisting women in the recovery process after birth to reestablish alignment, strength and stamina. Whether it is three days later or three decades later, it is never too late to heal the ailments that may have come up during pregnancy or birth. Whether it is building pelvic floor strength after birth or helping a woman prepare for a second birth after a challenging first birth; the integration of herbs, movement and acupuncture can be incredibly fast, productive and powerful in the prenatal and postpartum periods.

Birth Doula

Ali Pinschmidt, RN, MA, SNM

1° Shift Birthworks

I am a Certified Birth Doula, Registered Nurse, and am also training to be a Certified Nurse Midwife (graduating May 2024). I also bring decades of experience in the social service, education, and social justice fields, and am passionate about birther-centered care and equity. I am open-minded and a sensitive listener and communicator. I also have two young children of my own.

I am an official MassHealth Provider, meaning that anyone with MassHealth can receive my doula services at no cost through their plan. I am also fully vaccinated and boosted for COVID-19.

I have taken workshops on Spinning Babies and Gilligan's Guide, and can provide support to promote optimal fetal positioning both in pregnancy and in labor. While my work with clients will fall within the scope of doula care, my knowledge of labor and birth, prenatal and postnatal care, and newborn health that I have acquired in my last 4 years of schooling to become a midwife are a valuable asset for my clients.

I aim to be a conscientious support person for birthing people of all backgrounds in a way that feels trusting and respectful. I know that each birthing person (and partner/family) has individual needs that are particular and unique, and I strive to build a trusting relationship so I can understand those needs and know how to best meet them. I prioritize listening to and trusting the client. I look forward to connecting with you!

Fees: $1050-$1500 sliding scale by income
Free for those insured by MassHealth

Birth & Postpartum Doula

Isabel Bishop

I am a birth and postpartum doula, currently only doing overnight postpartum and newborn care. I have been working as a doula for one year, and have over 12 years of experience with child and infant care!

 

My job is to empower you to trust your own instincts! I believe that too often parents are shamed for the choices they make during the childbearing year, but the truth is that no way is the best way, and every pregnancy, every baby, every night with a newborn is different. I am much more interested in learning about you and your needs than coming in with some notion of expertise! I can offer tender companionship, as well as guidance on healing, juggling responsibilities, and baby care. But when I come into your home, my assumption is that you are the expert on this family, not me. Whether it’s cleaning a toilet, giving you a foot rub, or dialing the number for your doctor or lactation specialist, as a doula I want to do whatever task, small or large, that will bring you a little more ease and joy during this time!

Postpartum Doula 

Ashlynn Smith

Nurtured Blossoms Doula Care 

Hi my name is Ashlynn and I am the owner of Nurtured Blossoms Doula Care. I have 10 years of experience working with children and families across the lifespan. I also have a Bachelor's degree in Social Work and I completed my postpartum doula training with DONA.

We say "it takes a village to raise a child" and my goal as a postpartum doula is to bring a sense of a village to families by proving quality support. I serve Western Massachusetts and Connecticut areas. I provide the following support:

Daytime Support - Consists of usually a mix of focusing on mom and baby and walking alongside you during your day. Daytime support can look different for each family and each day. My role as a postpartum doula can entail allowing mom and dad to spend some time resting, helping with breastfeeding such as educating on what a good latch looks like, feeding positions, and referrals if needed, education and help with newborn care such as diapering, feeding, swaddling, and soothing, providing emotional support and guidance on this new journey, processing your birth story, and helping with light household chores such as dishes, laundry, sweeping.

Overnight Support - The goal of overnight support is to help you as parents get rest while knowing your precious little one is in safe hands. This doesn't mean you won't hear baby cry at times, because every newborn wakes pretty frequently, but you can rest assured knowing someone is attentively comforting and taking care of your baby's needs. If you are bottle feeding then the postpartum doula would feed baby a bottle, change baby's diaper, and get them back to sleep. If you need to pump then we can wake you to pump and wash the pump parts so they are ready to go for the next pumping session. If you are breastfeeding then we will bring baby to you to nurse and take baby when they are finished nursing and get them back to sleep while you stay in bed and rest.

Meal Prep Services - The goal of meal prep is for me to focus solely on cooking you nourishing foods for you and your family to enjoy. So you can focus on more important things such as resting and caring and bonding with your little one or older siblings. So you have one less thing to worry about.

As a home birth midwife and birth and postpartum doula for over 24 years, I've been incredibly blessed to help hundreds of families make this transition to new parenthood.

I simply serve as a facilitator; a 'mirror' reflecting your own way through.

I offer my skills as a bodyworker and Craniosacral Therapist (BCST), as well as 30 years experience growing, using, consulting and teaching about plant medicine.

Breathe to Empower: Mindful Yoga, Empowered Birth

 

As a yoga teacher since 2010, I have specialized in prenatal and postnatal yoga since 2013, and I use my yoga practice to help inform and empower birth and postpartum clients to connect with their bodies on a physical, spiritual and energetic level. The breathing aspects of yoga are a wonderful complement to the challenges of labor and postpartum. You do not have to be a yogi to work with me as your doula, but the option is there should you choose it! I also teach a childbirth education class that I put together over the course of my work, that will include a daily yoga practice to support your changing body.

Birth and Postpartum Doula

Alie Schonbek (she/her)

Alie the Doula

Alie has been drawn to birth for as long as she can remember. She was the little girl who was fascinated with pregnancy and babies, and always knew deep down that there was an unmistakable pull on her heart towards birth work. It was a winding path, but becoming a doula in 2023 felt to her like coming home - despite the twists and turns along the way, it was an “of course” moment in her story.

 

Alie’s approach to birth is built on that same wonder and awe that she felt as a child. She believes that with the right support, pregnancy, birth and postpartum can be empowering, positive experiences (not just something you have to get through to have your baby!), and she loves to witness the moments when parents realize just how strong they are. She is passionate about trauma-informed care and evidence-based decision making. Her goals as a doula are to build a strong bond with her families, learn their stories and values, and support their transitions with compassion and steadiness.
