Lucy the Laborer, founded by Emily Cohen-Moreira, provides multilingual pregnancy, birth and lactation education and services in the greater New York City area, and Northern New Jersey. Emily is a Certified Cooperative Childbirth Educator, Certified Lactation Counselor and Certified Birth Doula. From prenatal and childbirth education and birth doula services to in-home breastfeeding support, her goal is to empower you for a positive experience through this important process.

Emily’s approach to pregnancy/birth and lactation services is family centered and practical; her mission is to provide parents with good information and a deep understanding of their options so they can make choices that fit their own baby and family. Her goal in working together is to figure out what is best (and doable) for your family.

Emily is also available as a highly experienced Birth Doula. She provides expert, caring support during your pregnancy and entire birth experience. Studies show that parents who have continuous professional support during labor experience less pain, require less medical intervention and fewer c-sections, and report a higher level of satisfaction about their birth experiences.
