I am Farah Antoine-Mayberry, founder and owner of Epiphany Birth Services, llc. I feel so blessed to bring my unique set of skills and experiences to the clients I serve. Since 2003, I’ve worked as an occupational therapist, gaining experience working with infants and families in the NICU, PICU, home health, and outpatient settings.
Working in the above-referenced capacities afforded me the opportunity to recognize the gap in communication and support that so often exists between the hospital world and the grassroots world. As a result of that “epiphany”, I transitioned into a career as a birth worker which includes being a Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC), an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) , a Birth Doula aw well as a midwife’s assistant which affords me the honor of assisting families birthing at home.
I firmly and sincerely believe that expectant and new mothers deserve so much more support than most of them currently receive. My experience, coupled with my passion for families, contributes to the individualized care that I provide to my clients.
Listed below are a few of my fundamental beliefs concerning birth and lactation :
• How baby arrives matters
• Birth is an experience for both parents
• Every expectant couple has the right to be educated on “all things birth and breastfeeding”
• An expectant couple has the right to plan, and be supported throughout the birthing the way they’ve plan to birth
• A couple’s birth story is a precious and lasting one
• New parents deserve a supportive village to assist with childbirth and feeding preferences
Although I have an extensive background in the health world, I believe in supporting a woman’s desire to naturally birth and nourish her child. I am humbled to be able to serve as a midwife’s assistant to 4 reputable midwives: Taryn Goodwin, CPM with Spirited Birth Services, Yvonne Silbernagel, CPM with A Mother’s Love Midwifery, Dawn Karlin, CPM with Bliss Birth Services, and Brandy Harris, CPM with Willow Birth Services.
My husband and I are the blessed parents of 5 incredible children, including a set of twins. Self-care activities for me include dabbling in photography, reading, watching movies, and spending time with family. My role as your provider is to support your personal wishes and I’m honored for the opportunity to do so.
