Deborah Badran CD(DONA), BCST

Welcome! I am the Founder of Celebration of Life Doula Services in New York City. Celebration of Life is a full service birth support practice serving Manhattan, Queens and Brooklyn, NY. I have been a Certified Birth Doula, Postpartum Doula, Lactation Specialist and Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapist since 1998. I received my Doula training at Seattle Midwifery School with Penny Simkin who is one of the founders of Doulas of North America. I am certified with DONA. I am passionate about birth and babies! Pregnant women and their partners deserve the best possible experience of bringing their babies into this world! 

In addition to being an experienced Doula, I am a Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapist. Craniosacral Therapy is a very gentle, deep relaxation therapy that releases stress, strain and pain. Many pregnant women experience discomfort while they are pregnant. I offer them relief from back and leg pain, swelling in their wrists and ankles and for the general aches and pains of pregnancy. I use this therapy for natural pain relief in labor and for postpartum healing at home. I also use this therapy to help infants relax in their bodies, sleep better and breastfeed successfully with ease. 

It is my desire to bring comfort, support and guidance to families having their babies. My philosophy is to help women and their partners have gentle, calm births whether it is in the hospital, birth center or at home. I honor any style of birth...all natural or with an epidural. I have attended many water births and twin births.  I bring my Craniosacral Therapy skills of deep relaxation and comfort into the birth room to help with natural pain management and to avoid unnecessary interventions. These skills have been a key reason why I have had very few Cesarean Sections. I also use these techniques to turn breech babies into a favorable position for a vaginal delivery. I have helped many clients have successful VBAC's (vaginal birth after cesarean). 

Births are a great celebration for me! 

I love helping women give birth with ease, freedom and joy!
