Knowing How the System Works Gives You What You Need to Support Your Clients

You will gain valuable insight into how the U.S. system works, and how it is broken. Doulas can provide better service when they know who and what plays a part in the system.

Betsy Schwartz

I am Betsy Schwartz, pioneer and a visionary. In 1994 I established Tenth Month Doula Services, the first of its kind in South Florida. My most recent accomplishment is the creation and publication of Down the Canal – The Game of Birth. My website Birth in the Know has a wealth of information. I am a former board member of the Florida Breastfeeding Coalition, and a founding member of the Coalition for Improving Maternity Services. My master’s degree is in management of human services. My 27+ year career has been in being a postpartum doula, and training many. In 2012 I became a Reiki practitioner, and since then a Reiki Master. My newest hobbies are drumming and Dragonboat racing.
