Amber Ford – Seasoned Level 1
Amber is a DONA International certified labor support doula. She had the privilege of studying under the very inspiring Debra Pascali-Bonaro (director of Orgasmic Birth and Organic Birth), and learned all about breastfeeding from Sara Chana Silverstein. She has also been trained in the practices of Hypnobirthing. She is registered to work with the Inwood House in NYC to provide labor support to teens in the foster care system and runaway, homeless youth.
Amber has been working with children and families in one capacity or another for the past nine years. Whether she was performing shows for infants to teens, or working as a nanny and babysitter, she has always enjoyed being in the family environment. She joined The Purpose Project in 2010 and found herself in the jungles of Vietnam building a library and working with children in the village and surrounding orphanages.
Amber believes that by bringing love, care, humor and respect into a labor, women will be empowered to trust their bodies and have a beautiful birth. In her free time, you might find her playing with her French Bulldog, Bijoux, or enjoying the outdoors with her love, Sebastien.
