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). She then decided, that her path was to become a Certified Professional Midwife. She completed Art of Midwifery classes in Media, Pennsylvania and then 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 received her CPM credential in 2008.
Today, although she is no longer “babycatching”, Beth continues to teach her well loved Zen and the Art of Breastfeeding, Baby Bliss, The One Day Wonder Class, and her Home Sweet Home birth classes at yoga studios and wellness centers in Philly. She is 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 has worked as a therapist and Behavior Specialist Consultant since 1995. She continues to work with children with Autism, as well as their families all over the Delaware Valley. She recently completed post graduate course work at Florida Institute of Technology and plans to sit for the Board Certified Behavior Analyst credential in September 2013.
