meet chantal traub
doula and childbirth educator
Chantal Traub Is a prominent New York City birth facilitator, doula, childbirth educator and wellness coach. In her 20-plus years in practice, she has become internationally acclaimed for her expertise on the pelvic floor and her Pushing Power process.
Early on, Chantal identified a severe lack of preparation among birthing people for the pushing stage of labour. She observed that in birth classes, this essential topic was glossed over. Thus began a mission to properly educate and teach birthing mums—and professionals in the field—to better understand the pelvic floor; through her classes, her one-on-one work and her doula practice, Chntal has helped thousands of women birth babies without tearing and without episiotomies.
Chantal speaks often on the subject of pelvic floor health and safe, effective pushing. She is a regular educator for Global Pelvic Health Alliance, American Physical Therapy, NJ and My Pelvic Floor Muscles, and has been featured on many podcasts, including Next Question, with Katie Couric, The Women’s Health Podcast and the Birth healing Summit Podcast. She presented at the Polyvagal Institute Conference in 2022. In recent years, Chantal has expanded her training and practice to be able to serve the health needs of women of all ages and at all life stages.
