NEW YORK CITY AFFILIATED DOULAS
Francie Webb is a mom of two who lives in Harlem, NYC. She decided to become a birth doula after experiencing two transformative births, the first, a beautiful hospital birth with the support of a doula, and the second, an accidentally unassisted home birth when her birth team, including the same doula, didn't make it on time. You may have seen the photo of her giving birth the second time - it went viral and can now be seen all over the world. Her births were a culmination of a longtime healing process from childhood trauma that transformed her life. Francie believes that birth can be an empowering experience for anyone giving birth, no matter how it happens.
Francie spent the last fourteen years as a middle school teacher and loved every minute of it. Francie is the founder and CEO of TheMilkinMama, a small business dedicated to teaching hand expression of breast milk. She believes in helping parents have more power, more freedom, and less stress. In the summer of 2017, she will publish her second book, Go Milk Yourself. Francie loves yoga, meditation, reading, writing, trying new Whole 30 and Paleo recipes, traveling, spending time with friends, date nights with her husband, and any opportunity she gets to relax with her family. Francie graduated from Duke University and earned Masters Degrees from Pace University and Bank Street college of Education. She hopes to become a midwife one day.
