Vynessa Pantano, LMT
Doula, Childbirth Educator, Massage Therapist
Vynessa chose to become a Doula after the birth of the first of her three daughters. While Vynessa has always had a passion for women’s health and well-being, the experience of her first birth – and her Doula’s support – led her to become a Doula in order to support other birthing parents and their partners along their desired birth journey. Being a Doula is the perfect avenue through which Vynessa can channel her strength, intuition, and passion for taking care of women, children, and families.
Like all massage therapists, Vynessa has an excellent, hands-on approach with her clients. Her knowledge and strong but gentle energy gives couples the confidence to face their challenges head on. In her role as a Doula, Vynessa assists the birthing parents in making informed choices and preparing for different outcomes while offering non-judgmental support. She places an emphasis on helping the partner know how to support the birthing parent in labor. By helping birth to be an optimal experience for both the birthing mother and her partner, Vynessa believes she is positively contributing to an experience that will affect the whole family for a lifetime. She will support women in all birth locations and is comfortable with both natural spontaneous births and medically managed births.
Vynessa has a Bachelor of Science in Biology from the State University of New York at Albany, has been a Licensed Massage Therapist for more than 20 years, and has worked as a Radiation Oncology Medical Assistant at Georgetown Hospital. She is comfortable with both traditional and complementary approaches to medicine.
Vynessa has advanced trainings in: Massage, Acupressure, Reiki, Spinning Babies, healing touch, TENS, essential oils, and many other techniques.
