Oge E. | Doula in Brooklyn, NY

Your Baby Your Birth

    Practice overview

    As a birth doula, I focus on mindfulness, movement and breath with emphasis on helping birthing folks tap into their innate abilities while keeping them well-informed with evidence-based information. With a nurturing and empathetic spirit, I’m able to be adaptive to each birth. I’m forever grateful for the honor folks bestow upon me to be a part of their birth story. I’m able to offer parts of who I am, while trusting my intuition, protecting the surrounding energy, and helping to create an environment for a powerful transition. Birthwork is a part of all of our shared history. Throughout time, the practice of birthing humans being surrounded and supported by others during this sacred moment is archetypal. As a certified doula, lactation counselor, meditation guide and breathwork facilitator, I continue that lineage by providing support during labor and birth with communication, guided meditation, movement, music, massages, aromatherapy, and most importantly — love. Outside of the birthing world, I am a multi-passionate creative. In all aspects of my adult life, I have found myself creating space for others. Whether it was planning and managing corporate and creative events; hosting a party; or teaching a dance class where everyone felt free to move without judgement, I have always sought to deliver intentional energy, presence and joy to all my interpersonal interactions. I enjoy music, dancing, cooking, photography (architecture, style, and portraits), and writing.

      Oge brings the kind of calm that people who are near her benefit from. From the medical team to the birthing family and peers in the community, we are all touched by her warmth, knowledge and grace.

      Oge was an essential member of our team. She helped me and my partner feel safe and in control, and offered hands on support in a compassionate and deliberate manner.

      Because of Oge’s knowledge, experience, and bedside manner, our daughter’s birth felt empowering and transformative. We were so lucky to have her by our side.

      I’ve recommended her to every pregnant friend and will continue to do so until the end of time. She’s family.

      From our first preliminary meeting, I could feel the warmth, expertise, and kindness exuding from Oge. Our mutual philosophies on meditation and self-care spoke to me immediately, but it was her confidence and detailed questions that made me know I wanted her as part of my birth team. The pre-natal classes were so helpful (I had taken some through the hospital, but the depth and care Oge took in her information supplemented those classes perfectly, not to mention I could ask detailed questions as we went), and as my birth neared, her one-on-one text/voice memo/phone call care was invaluable. I had a long early labor so every day I was discovering new things and facing new anxieties. I’m SO lucky I had her to download information from as I went. I highly recommend Oge to anyone looking for a grounded, thoughtful, informed, and rad Doula. She’s just the best.
