Welcome to Labour Day Doula Support - Serving Northern New Jersey and Lower New York

A doula is a modern manifestation of an ancient tradition of women helping women through childbirth.

"The four women chatted over my head when the pangs subsuided, and cooed encouragement when the pains returned. They put fruit juice in my mouth, and wiped me down with sweetly scented towels... massaged my legs..."

- Anita Diamant, The Red Tent

Labour Day Doula Support provides birth doula services for families located in northern New Jersey (primarily Bergen, Hudson, Passaic, and Essex counties), Rockland County (New York), and New York City. In addition, I provide postpartum support on a select basis. I am also a Lamaze-certified childbirth educator providing private one-on-one classes.

I believe that birth...

  • Is normal
  • Is healthy
  • Is a natural part of life, even when medical intervention is present
  • Is a positive experience and can also be a healing ritual
  • Is a passage for fathers as well
  • Is an emergence, not an emergency
  • Profoundly impacts parenting
  • Influences breastfeeding success

I further believe that women...

  • Can birth the babies that their bodies grow
  • Can experience VBAC safely
  • Deserve to make informed choices throughout their pregnancies, labors, and births
