postpartum doula

Boober is the premier provider of smart, non-judgmental childbirth education, doula services and on-demand lactation support for savvy New Yorkers. Boober got started as Birth Day Presence--New York City’s #1 Doula Training Center, training over 300 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. The doulas with whom we are affiliated are mostly trained in Birth Day Presence's 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.

I was lucky to have been connected with Didi through Birth Day Presence. My husband and I took the weekend intensive class on childbirth education there, as well as the breastfeeding/newborn class. So the classes really helped us have a better understanding of what to expect. However, after the classes and speaking with several friends, they all highly recommended having a doula present during labor. I wanted someone who was experienced in childbirth, nurturing, and in-line with my requests. And Didi was exactly the right person for the job. I interviewed several other doula’s but after meeting Didi, both my husband and I felt immediately comfortable with her. She was absolutely wonderful and sweet, and I know that she was a huge reason why my birthing experience was so unbelievable. I couldn’t have asked for a better birth.

Thank you to Jada, my Kangaroula, who supported me not only through a very long labor, but helped us and my son tremendously in the Nicu. She was there for early breastfeeding sessions and helped me advocate for more skin-to-skin time, even though my baby was connected by tubes and monitors.
