Birth Day Presence is the premier provider of smart, non-judgmental childbirth education, doula services and on-demand lactation support for savvy New Yorkers. We are New York City’s #1 Doula Training Center, training over 125 new doulas every year. We refer birth and postpartum doulas to all types of families, from first-time moms to parents welcoming their second or third child to A-list celebrities requiring the utmost discretion (references available upon request). The doulas with whom we are affiliated are mostly trained in our doula training workshop; most experienced doulas are certified through DONA International (newer doulas may be working toward their certification). Many also have advanced training/licensure in complementary fields such as prenatal yoga, massage therapy, reiki, nutrition, and counseling.
