Supporting families and training postpartum doulas since 1991

Women are not supposed to birth and mother alone.
We are meant to be part of a community, or the village as it used to be called. Postpartum doulas have become the lost village of women helpers.

ABOUT Betsy Schwartz

I consider myself a pioneer and a visionary; going where no one has gone before. I am not afraid to take risks, and speak my truth.  At the same time, I am passionate about serving others and making a difference in the world.

In the course of my years of being a birth worker, I have served hundreds of families and doulas as a postpartum doula and trainer, and was a birth doula for a short time. Along the way I became a certified lactation counselor (CLC), board game creator, and Reiki Master.

Teaching and sharing wisdom comes naturally to me, and I do it daily as I live my life.  I offer courses, accept speaking engagements, sell my original creation, Down the Canal – the Game of Birth, and share the powerful practice of Reiki.  Check out my personal blog here.
