She is committed to providing professional and nonjudgmental support to everyone. She fully understands that there is not just one way to give birth or take care of a baby. That's why she founded her practice on the conclusion that the only choices that are important are yours. She started to grow as a solo doula in the beginning of 2012, eager to learn and serve. In the Spring of 2016, it was time to take things to the next level by training professionally and establishing Doulas of Broome County.

Nicole spent most of her childhood, and even the beginning of parenthood, in the small rural town in Upstate, New York of Lisle. It wasn’t until she was expecting her second daughter in 2011 that she developed a passion for the journey into parenthood. By the time. That's when she knew her future laid within offering other families that level of support.
Nicole is passionate about providing families with the tools they’re looking for to feel excited and confident about the journey they're embarking on. She holds your birth and parenting experience in the highest regards and believes you deserve nothing less than access to up to date, evidence based information and exclusive nonjudgmental support.
When Nicole is not robustly continuing her education in her work she is enjoying life with her four fantastic daughters and dog Loki.

Bethany grew up in Owego NY going on to study nutrition at SUNY Oneonta. It was there her passion for nutrition during pregnancy, the postpartum period, and breastfeeding grew, leading her to accept a position at WIC as their Tioga County nutritionist post graduation. There Bethany provided nutrition counseling from pregnancy to early childhood, along with while breastfeeding. After having to leave her job due to a high risk pregnancy that resulted in a five month NICU stay, lactation consulting and now pediatric feeding became even more important. In the following years, Bethany focused on being a mom and seeking a balanced lifestyle to comfortably sustain.
In 2018, Bethany combined what she’d already learned and experienced with her desire to help others to start offering private nutrition counseling. In 2019 she joined Doulas of Broome County, sharing the vision of well rounded support. She teams up with you to help find a healthy balance, providing a different kind of support throughout the perinatal period.
Remaining fairly local, she and her husband are raising their son, Killian. Bethany stays current with the latest research and is dedicated to continuing her education in this field. When she’s not working she's spending time with her husband, son and their extended family, writing, or binge watching her favorite TV shows.
