Birth Doula/Postpartum Caregiver/Breastfeeding Counselor

Thriving Together




 

Hi, my name is Ania

I am a Holistically trained Certified Birth & Postpartum Doula & Breastfeeding Counselor providing support in the NYC area, in person and virtually.

Who am I?

First of all I am a mother of three amazing children. Birth of each one of them taught me so much! Hospital birth, followed by homebirth with an amazing midwife and finally free birth with only my older children and my closest friend present.

All those experiences are the reasons,why I decided to take the path of supporting women and couples on journey of parenthood. 

I see pregnancy, birth and postpartum period as a Rite of Passage and always feel deeply honored to be part of this event.

With Master Degree in Translation, for many years I worked as a Medical Interpreter in all major hospitals in New  York City.

Then, after taking my first (of many) birth doula trainings back in 2017, I knew instantly that is exactly what want to do. 

Now after having supported 31 births, I feel absolutely honored to do what I feel is my life calling.
