Welcome to BEBO!

BEBO serves the Westchester, NY area, providing childbirth preparation classes, labor and postpartum doula support, breastfeeding support in English and Spanish. All  fees are set on a sliding scale based on income - affordable for everyone!

We are proud to announce our latest endeavor: BEBO's Village of Mothers!
BEBO's Village of Mothers is a free service to families with newborns, through which trained volunteers are matched with families needing help. Join us as we build this community of helpers.  If you are looking for help, click here.

Childbirth preparation classes cover pregnancy nutrition, choices in pregnancy and childbirth, anatomy and physiology of pregnancy/labor/birth/postpartum, labor support and pain relief options, interventions and complications, postpartum preparation, breastfeeding basics and newborn care.

Labor support doulas are trained to help mothers during all phases of labor and delivery with non-medical support, both physical and emotional. Women with doula support show a reduction in the duration of labor, less use of pain relief medications, lower rates of operative vaginal delivery, and a reduction in C-sections.

Postpartum support: Postpartum doulas do whatever a mother needs to best enjoy and care for her new baby. They share information about baby care with parents, as well as teach siblings and partners to “mother the mother.”  Postpartum doulas also make sure the mother is fed, well hydrated and comfortable. Board certified lactation consultants work together with mothers to prevent and solve breastfeeding problems

All services are provided by trained professionals, including certified childbirth educators, DONA trained doulas, and board certified lactation consultants (IBCLC).
