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.
