Amethyst Hertsens is the founder of Peace Love and Labor. She is a full-spectrum Birth and Post Partum Doula, Newborn Care Specialist, HypnoBirthing Childbirth Educator, Placenta Encapsulation Specialist, Dancing for Birth Instructor and Infant Massage instructor offering her services to the expecting families of NYC and NJ. 

Her path into Birthwork started when she was just 13 years old, witnessing her mother and father laboring together at home to bring her little sister into the world. Ever since then, being involved in birth has always been in the back of her mind, though she wasn't sure in what capacity. It wasn't until 17 years later that she discovered what a Doula was and immediately began taking all the trainings related to birth that she could. Almost 6 years later and she has attended over 250 births, supported over 100 families Postpartum and encapsulated over 450 placentas. She now also teaches Doulas and Midwives about the wonderful use of the Rebozo during labor in a 1 day workshop.
