Preconception and Pregnancy to Birth and Post-Partum
with Noa.jpg

Welcome to the world of holistic, specialized midwifery, birth counseling, and personalized, in-depth prenatal education. I am Risa Klein, known as "The Manhattan Midwife," bringing you three decades of expertise as a Certified Nurse Midwife, OB/GYN Nurse Practitioner, and Certified Prenatal Birth Counselor.

My approach is deeply rooted in academic and clinical midwifery training, offering tailored care that accompanies you through every stage of preconception, pregnancy, postpartum, and beyond. Whether you are stepping into parenthood for the first time or experiencing the miracle of birth once again, or navigating an unanticipated medical condition, or seeking support for a past traumatic birth or post-partum experience, my commitment is to empower you on your journey by helping you to process, reframe, review medical records, and reintegrate those experiences in order to move forward in a healthy way.


Time constraints during routine prenatal visits with your midwife or OB/GYN can limit the depth of discussions or the opportunity to address all of your concerns adequately. Our first session is always 90 minutes long and follow-up appointments are an hour.

Together, we'll navigate this transformative adventure, ensuring you feel supported and informed every step of the way. Welcome to a journey of profound fulfillment and empowerment.


“Risa Klein gave us the encouragement, skill and compassion to have the birth we dreamed about. She educated us both fully on what to expect so that when our big day came we felt fully confident and empowered both as a couple and as individuals. Our trust in her AS OUR MIDWIFE was and is absolute..”  Love, Hope
