We are registered nurses with over 35 years of experience each in obstetrics, birthing, breastfeeding and early childhood education.
Most importantly, we are both mothers and grandmothers who would love to share what we have learned both personally and professionally to help you have the birth experience you imagine and become the great parent you want to be.
We are Certified Childbirth Educators through ICEA (International Childbirth Educators Association) and Lamaze International. In addition, Ellen is certified as an IBCLC (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant) and Paula is a CPP(Certified Prevention Professional) in NYS.
For years, while working together in the maternity unit in the hospital, we often talked about our shared belief that birth is the process which can empower women and families. Research shows that when expectant parents are educated about childbirth and parenting options, they will be much more likely to have a more satisfying and positive birth experience and enjoy parenting more.
We share a common belief that your childbirth and parenting experience is one of the most important life events in your life. We hope to share our combined maternity nursing expertise and parenting knowledge with you through our online classes with our personal support through email, or phone. support, or live classes if you are living in the NY-NJ Hudson Valley region!
