Belly Centered
Belly Centered

Birthing from Within™ Childbirth Preparation Classes, Prenatal Yoga, Doula services

Belly Centered exists to provide support, nourishment, and community to parents and families throughout the journeys of conception, pregnancy, birth, and parenting. This support and nourishment can come in many forms and many packages. I offer Childbirth Preparation Classes, doula services, yoga teaching, and will soon offer family-centered retreats and travel opportunities. All are designed to be full of information, ritual, celebration, yoga, good food, resources and networks of support, and space to learn what it is that YOU need at this moment in YOUR life. I believe that what every parent needs is unique and the services I provide reflect that belief, providing a customized approach for every individual, couple, or group. This philosophy and approach stems from my training with Birthing From Within® and studies and training in experiential and adventure education.

Birth Doulas of Pittsburgh has been providing DONA certified, supportive birth doulas to women and their partners in hospitals, birth centers and at home since 1994. We understand that birth is a key life experience that the mother will remember all her life and we strive to support and nurture the birthing family.

During pregnancy, We get to know you throughout our prenatal visits and learn about your concerns and desires for your birth. We help you create a birth plan and provide reassurance and information throughout your pregnancy.

During labor, the mother is supported with continuous care. Unlike regular hospital staff, there are no shift changes. We understand that labor is an emotional, physical and spiritual event. We will help you with pain relieveing measures such as relaxation, massage, positioning, breathing patterns, use of a birthing ball, water therapy and many other comfort techniques to work positively with your contractions.

We are also able to provide informational support, answering questions about the labor process and hospital procedures, as well as being your advocate to hospital staff while providing an objective viewpoint for you and your partner. We are also happy to take any pictures for you using your camera, or a disposable.

Immediately after birth, we stay with you through all postpartum procedures and help with breastfeeding assistance, information and support. During the first few days postpartum the doula stays in touch by phone to provide support and answer questions. Several weeks after the birth we schedule a post partum visit where you will receive your birth story and photos, if you chose to have them taken. We are happy to provide suggestions for making those first few weeks as successful as possible and look forward to discussing your feelings about the birth and encourage a confident peaceful passage into motherhood.
