Erie Doulas are Michelle Totleben and Chris Reinelt, NWPA's most experienced birth doula team. Together, we have served hundreds of women in the Erie, PA region for almost 20 years. In 2014, we teamed up to offer our clients rock-solid support and the benefits of our combined experience.
We are passionate about healthy birth and we are dedicated to helping women and families to experience birth in a positive way in an atmosphere of respect, safety and trust. Women will always remember their births. We want for those memories to be the best they can be.
We believe that pregnancy and childbirth are normal and natural processes that generally require little interference. We also believe that pregnancy and birth have the power to transform and are filled with opportunities for self-discovery and personal growth.
Our goal for families is that they know how to obtain their very best care that reflects their specific needs and preferences. Also, to be able to look back at their birth day with deep satisfaction because they were respected, supported, educated and included in every decision about their care every step of the way.
