ABOUT BIBI LORENZETTI
Bibi is a Mother, owner of Newburgh Yoga Shala, DONA Certified & Birthing From Within Birth Doula, Ayudoula, Yoga Teacher and a Health Coach based in the Hudson Valley, where she runs a sweet home yoga studio. Her work is rooted in years of experience supporting women from all paths of life and her own empowering, deeply transformative birth experience which sparked her calling to support other women on the journey of pregnancy, birth and postpartum. Her passion for and knowledge of the pregnant woman’s physiology inform her well rounded practice.
Bibi brings passion, encouragement and nourishing energy to all women that cross her path, empowering them through the most magical, difficult moments of labor and birth. She believes that pregnancy and birth are vital to the physical, emotional and spiritual health of children, parents, and our society as a whole and that the bond between children and their parents begins in the womb. The scope of her work is to create a strong foundation for pregnancy, birth and the postpartum time, through yoga, ayurvedic self care practices, nutrition and birth support. She offers a non-judgemental, hands-on, compassionate, calming presence. Her work includes partner coaching, breathing & relaxation techniques, birth art, comfort measures, emotional support and a willingness to serve as her clients find their way through their birth journey.
She believes a positive birth experience ignites the flame for empowerment, and is available to all. Being aware of one’s own fears and replacing them with knowledge and resilience to build confidence in one’s own strength and courage is a key element to the process. As your doula she outlines the ‘birth roadmap’ and gives you the tools to gracefully embrace the unique unpredictable nature of birth. “I’m here to hold your hand so you may navigate the deep acceptance that birth requires and the profoundly important transition into motherhood with ease. My wish is to help you live and create a birth story that you can keep as the most profound memory for years to come”.

"We were initially unsure about hiring a doula, but after our birth experience with Bibi we are telling anyone who will listen that it’s a *must*! Her support was invaluable not only for myself as a new mother, but for my husband as well. Leading up to the birth, she guided us through everything via Zoom sessions, which helped immensely with education about the stages of labor and birth and getting us into a positive mindset about what was to come.
I had initially planned for an unmedicated birth, and Bibi was so amazing at helping me work through labor at the hospital. Her presence was calming, confident, and encouraging, and she helped me to remain present even during the most intense phases. She was also really incredible at keeping my husband involved and giving him direction in ways to support me. I ended up getting an epidural due to back labor pain, and she was so supportive and helpful with that decision and process - her guidance helped me to accept my new birth “story” without having any regrets. As a bonus, Bibi also took beautiful photos of our daughter being born that we will cherish forever! We wholeheartedly recommend working with Bibi, and would hire her again in a heartbeat if/when we decide to have another baby."
