Beth opened Believe In Birth in 2001, a year after the birth of her first child. At first, she became a Certified Childbirth Educator, through BirthWorks, and an accredited La Leche League Leader. In 2002, Beth expanded her birth knowledge by assisting women as a doula, and was trained by ALACE and certified by Doulas of North America (DONA).
Next, Beth completed Art of Midwifery classes in Media, Pennsylvania and went on to apprentice for two and a half years with the well loved and well known Midwifery Traditions practice. This was the key requirement of her training through the North American Registry of Midwives’ Portfolio Evaluation Program and she earned her Certified Professional Midwife (CPM) credential in 2008.
Today, although she is no longer “babycatching”, She is honored to be the Mid-Atlantic Doula Trainer and mentor for Birth Arts International (BAI) and holds trainings in Philadelphia several times a year.
In addition to birth work, Beth is a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) and a Licensed Behavior Specialist Consultant in Pennsylvania. She has worked with children with Autism and behavior concerns since 1995. She continues to help women, families and children make positive behavior change in their lives in private practice.
She lives with her husband and three children in South Philadelphia.
