My name is Deena Blumenfeld. I guide women to the threshold of motherhood so they may step through the door on their own with grace and confidence. Labor is work and birth is truly transformational. My passion and my profession both are pregnancy and childbirth.
I am a historian, a collector, a writer, a Lamaze certified childbirth educator and a Prenatal Yoga instructor. I’m also the mother to two elementary school aged children.
I am the owner, principal educator and doula madame at Shining Light Prenatal Education and Shining Light Doulas in Pittsburgh, Pa. I author The Silent Mother, a blog about the unspoken and ugly parts of motherhood, with a historical twist.
I work with my clients both in-person and via Skype. To see how I can help you navigate your pregnancy, or for professional development, do contact me.
