Andrea is a Certified Nurse Midwife practicing in NYC since 2008. She is the founder and owner of Brooklyn Homebirth Midwifery, and one of the founding members of the Haven Midwifery Birthing Center, which is poised to be the first midwifery-led birthing center in NYC. Through her work as a midwife, she has seen how unresolved trauma, fears and relationship issues can interfere with not only the joy of pregnancy and childbirth, but the process the well.
Andrea frequently uses the Havening techniques with her clients throughout their prenatal care to help them emotionally prepare for their labor and birthing experiences, and to guide them through labor and postpartum. Permanently releasing birth trauma, anxiety, phobia, and fears surrounding pregnancy, birth and parenting, are just some of the issues she has helped her clients with.
No matter how many times she sees the positive results of Havening, she is still impressed at how effective it is in dealing with issues that many had just resigned themselves to living with. Time and time again, she has not only seen people freed from these burdens, but she has also witnessed them build up their resiliency to better face disappointments life may present them with in a positive, empowered way that they never had before.
