Birth Assistant:  

Hello! I’m Noelle. I’m a plant obsessed wife to my high school sweetheart, homeschooling mom of three with a sweet Angel baby cheering us on from above. I run the family circus consisting of 1 dog, 5 cats, 2 Guinea pigs, and a house chicken. I’ve been serving the Long Island birth community for 8 years as a doula, placenta specialist, and childbirth educator. I’m in my second year as a midwifery student working towards my CPM credentials to hopefully practice one day in NY. In birth, I’m most passionate about accessibility to care, bodily autonomy, informed choice, shared decision making.
