Birth Doulas


Vanessa NJ/NYC - Tier 2

Vanessa Wingerath is a birth doula, yoga instructor and mother of two. She taught high school Spanish in NYC before moving to New Jersey to spend more time with her children. After the birth of her two children, Vanessa felt empowered and knows it is a privilege to help other women achieve the birth they desire.  

In addition to working with new parents as a doula, Vanessa offers support groups for new and experienced parents out of her home. She loves to read, garden, sing and bake with her children. She had a blast this past summer with the preschoolers who attended her yoga and gardening camp. 

As a birth doula, Vanessa supports all wishes of birthing families without judgment. She is comfortable with a camera and is also trained in Reiki, a gentle touch therapy that many laboring (and non-laboring) people find relaxing. Vanessa's clients may also benefit from learning yoga breathing and meditation exercises that can help you prepare for labor and cope with each contraction. 

Vanessa is available to attend births both in NJ and NYC
