Olya Morkova is a certified birth & postpartum doula and a HypnoBirthing® childbirth educator.
She came to birth work after a successful career as a human rights lawyer. After giving birth to her daughter, using HypnoBirthing® method, she became fascinated by the transformational power of giving birth. That’s how she found her true calling in supporting other women on their journey to motherhood. Olya’s experience and training with the HypnoBirthing® Institure and Spinning Babies® empowers other women to have easier, faster and more comfortable births.
She considers herself to be a culturally attuned doula. She has travelled to and studied in more than 25 countries where she learnt a lot about different traditions and cultural practices. She speaks English, Russian and Ukrainian.
In her work, Olya uses the qualities of the heart and mind together. Having a regular spiritual practice helps her to be grounded in any situation and 100% present for her clients during the birth. Her passions are live music, meditation and nature.
Olya lives in Nyack, NY and serves Lower Hudson Valley, including Rockland County, Orange County, Ulster County and Dutchess County, as well as Bronx, Northern New Jersey and Connecticut.
