Why not experience a smooth and peaceful transition to parenthood? Round out your team with doula support to ensure you and your family get the best care during this unique time.
Postmodern Childbirth offers exceptional care to the growing families of New York City. Whether you are seeking a birth doula, postpartum infant care, childbirth education, consulting, or lactation support, you’ll receive personalized care tailored just for you.
Taking a select number of clients at a time means we can provide the high level of service you expect. This intimate experience is about you—so the services we provide take a different shape for each person. You’re busy and expect only the best, and this special time in your life is no different.
We focus on you and creating a secluded cocoon for your family through this transition. Deep expertise informs our service, while bringing a fresh approach to birth and postpartum education and support. What was best for your loved ones is not necessarily what will work for you— and we work together to figure out what that best support will be. Staying nimble in our approach to each client brings immeasurable benefits, and you’ll feel confident and cared for as you become a parent.
Postmodern Childbirth offers birth doula and newborn support services in New York City (Queens, Brooklyn, Manhattan) and the greater metro NYC area.
Confidentiality, discretion, and nonjudgmental unconditional support are guaranteed.
