Vicki Bloom (she/her) – NYC and Westchester County, NY

Whole Self Doula

Vicki Bloom believes that you don’t become a different person when you become pregnant, begin labor, enter your birthing space, or bring your baby home for the first time. As your doula, Vicki takes the time to learn who you are and what will help you and your family to feel comfortable, informed, prepared, and ready to engage with your birth, both in advance and through the ever-changing moments of the birth process. She is passionate, flexible, and comforting, but also grounded, no-nonsense, and strongly evidence-based. 

Her clients come from all walks of life, but she is especially drawn to support people who can fall through the cracks of the medical system or feel unheard through the process of standardized birth, such as younger and older parents, single parents, LGBTQIA+ parents, people in non-traditional careers, families in transition, and parents of size. She also specializes in supporting alternative parents who want a professional with whom they can share their family dynamics openly, such as polyamorous families and people in power-dynamic relationships.

Vicki also provide nonjudgemental, compassionate support for clients experiencing abortion, miscarriage, and fetal loss.
