Birthingway Place


As a childbirth educator and a doula, I know there are many questions surrounding pregnancy, labor and birth. I provide childbirth education (classes) and professional labor assistance (doula) throughout the Los Angeles basin, Inland Empire and Orange County regions. Fully certified by numerous organizations and with nearly two decades of experience in the childbirth field, I have an extensive wealth of information to share. In addition, I have a Bachelor of Arts degree specifically designed to assist women and their families through the birthing process. You can e-mail me at or call Eileen Wright at (909)948-8868 or (562)987-1737.

Words of wisdom can be found in Aristotle's recommendation that a doula should have "a lion's heart, a hawk's eye, and a lady's hand."
