Mangione Birth Support

    Practice overview

    I have a degree in psychology, and have spent the past year growing my understanding of all things childbirth. As an infant nanny, I have extensive experience in individualizing care families need postpartum, and what methods work best for each baby and family dynamic. I continue these tenants in my birthwork, and spend ample time both pre and post birth connecting with families to make sure they can access the support they need. I have supported home birth, birth center birth, and hospital birth, and am very comfortable in all settings. I am also a Certified Lactation Educator, and am passionate about educating and supporting parents in their infant feeding journey. I offer two prenatals, full labor and birth presence, and two visits postparum. This way, I know my clients well before we are working together in labor, and have lots of time to talk over things and set up support after baby is born.

    Care philosophy

    As a birthworker, I see myself as part of a team. I work with my client, their family, and their medical team, to assure they have a safe and supportive environment to birth their baby. As humans, we are not meant to go through pregnancy, birth, or postpartum on our own, and I am so honored to be a part of any family's village. Birth support should not be a privilege, but a right.
