Jenn Riedy

Jenn has been helping moms to enjoy healthier pregnancies and births through education and hands on support since she founded Knitted in the Womb in 2001. As she anticipated the birth of her first child with a certain amount of fear, she certainly never imagined that she would have ended up here! So how did it happen?

After the birth of her first child she became very hooked on the subject of childbirth. Her labor was over 30 hours long, but the preparation she and her husband had for it, having taken The Bradley Method® childbirth classes, made it a challenge that they were able to tackle together. Jenn believes that the techniques that they learned and the confidence that they gained helped them to not only avoid many “minor” interventions like a Pitocin drip to speed up a slow labor, but ultimately even a cesarean section when labor “stalled” at 9 cms for over 6 hours.

Jenn’s passion to learn more about the topic and learn how to help other women/couples has only increased in the past few years and with the births of her next five children. In 2001 and 2002 Jenn became a doula and certified childbirth education instructor following intensive training with two nationally recognized childbirth organizations. To further her training over the years, Jenn has added:

  • Child Passenger Safety training,
  • Spinning Babies® to better understand how the baby’s position in the womb affects labor
  • Childbirth Interntional Post Partum Doula training
  • Hypno Babies doula training

Jenn brings the techniques she has learned to pregnant moms to improve their chances of an easier birth. She has also been a childbirth educator trainer at trainings across the United States.

Jenn was a founding member of EmPoWeReD Birth in 2009; and a founding member and a member of the Board of Directors of Informed Beginnings. Informed Beginnings, or InfoBe, is a co-operative childbirth education organization. This organization provides certification for childbirth educators, and as a co-operative, it is owned by its educator members. Informed Beginnings officially incorporated in late 2011.

Jenn’s philosophy on childbirth is influenced by her faith in God, and trust in His design (see “Why Christian Childbirth Classes”). She understands that humans are fallen creatures and thus sometimes problems will arise, but believes that the female body is designed to birth without interference in the majority of cases. While her faith does shape her philosophy, it does not stop her from enjoying serving women and couples with a wide variety of philosophical backgrounds. Jenn feels blessed to have met a broad variety of people through her childbirth career, and eagerly anticipates continuing to meet more.

She is a graduate of Lafayette College, and resides with her family in Allentown, PA. Call or text 610-844-6223 to set up a consultation or e-mail jenn@knittedinthewomb.com

Danielle Guntle

Danielle’s interest in childbirth began at a young age when she was introduced to a PBS broadcast of NOVA’s The Miracle of Life. She was greatly fascinated by the details of pregnancy and childbirth. It was in those years that she witnessed her own mother accomplish a vaginal birth after cesareans, sometimes called “VBA2C,” and was deeply impressed by this miraculous event. Through the years, many friends would talk openly with Danielle about their positive birthing experiences without fear and full of empowerment.

Danielle then spent more than half a decade serving abroad in humanitarian aid to orphans as well as social work with new mothers in Hawaii.   Combined with a drive to serve and the new wave of childbirth support training made available in the US, Danielle discovered the wellspring of her calling; a focus in her efforts to serve and support others.

In 2003 Danielle received her certification as a birth doula through Doulas of North America (DONA). She has also received training as a postpartum doula, in breast feeding support, and pregnancy massage. Danielle has served clients in California, Hawaii, Texas and Pennsylvania; with a predominant focus on helping first time mothers. It wasn’t too long that she realized that every woman – whether a working professional, close friend, or unwed teenage girl – needed and deserved a doula. She found it incredibly rewarding to support these new mothers with education and preparation during pregnancy; physical and emotional support during labor and delivery; and companionship and encouragement during the postpartum months.

After becoming a doula, Danielle knew she wanted to birth her own children at home.  In 2007, she did just that. Her firstborn son was born at home after 16 hours of back labor.  Danielle believes that the coping mechanisms and birthing positions she learned about in her doula training were imperative to the success of her vaginal and unmedicated birth experience. Her passion to coach and support women were renewed when she felt the overwhelming accomplishment from birthing safely and naturally with the continuous help and loving support given by her husband, midwife and doula. In 2009, Danielle birthed another son at home, this time in less than 5 hours and in water!  Her third and fourth babies were both born in under 3 hours and at a local hospital under the care of a wonderful obstetrician. Danielle feels blessed that she was able to birth her 4 children without medical intervention, and desires that every laboring woman experiences the amazing power of their own bodies and the empowerment that comes from welcoming and working with labor.

Danielle resides with her family in Kutxtown, PA. Call or text 484-619-6052 to set up a consultation or e-mail mamabella856@gmail.com
