Dawn Chorba –
Dawn came to this work through the birth of her son, Orson. She credits her own extremely satisfying and empowering childbirth experience to the support she received prenatally, in labor and postpartum. From there a deep passion and value surrounding pregnancy, birth and postpartum awakened within her and she couldn’t imagine spending her life doing anything else. Dawn is a Certified Holistic Doula under the Matrona Foundation and a DONA-trained Birth and Postpartum Doula. She is also trained in Spinning Babies and Rebozo. Dawn is a Certified Breastfeeding Counselor and holds a Healthcare Provider Adult/Child/Infant/CPR/AED/Choking Certification. She studied The Bradley Method® of Natural Childbirth with Tanya Wills to prepare for her son’s birth and is currently undergoing certification to teach The Bradley Method® of Natural Childbirth. Dawn completed the GoGo Babies® Infant Developmental Movement and Yoga for Babies Professional Training with Ellynne Skove as well as her Understanding your Newborn in the 4th Trimester: Soothing, Settling & Centering.
She is the middle child of three sisters, was raised in New Jersey and married her high school sweetheart. She studied Design and Merchandising with a concentration in Marketing at Drexel University in Philadelphia. She loves art and considers herself a Jane of All Trades when it comes to creative projects.
