Terry is a labor support doula and a certified childbirth educator. For the last 14 years, she has been attending births and teaching childbirth preparation classes with passion and joy. Hundreds of births and countless classes later, she feels strongly that new parents deserve unconditional support and encouragement no matter what their birth choices. Terry was the cofounder of Birth Day Presence, helped to create a volunteer doula program at Bellevue Hospital Birth Center, served as co-director of the Metropolitan Doula Group and served on the board of Choices in Childbirth. Terry, along with her doula partner Catherine Stewart-Lindley, runs Labor of Love Doula Services: www.laborlove.org
Terry is particularly delighted to be the mother to her teenage son, Emory. Before she became full time doula, Terry could be found singing and dancing on Broadway.
