About Nets Manela

Certified Holistic Doula, Childbirth Educator, RCST, Student Midwife

For the past 18 years, I have been pursuing my passions, attending births as a doula, birth assistant, and student midwife while raising my own four children.  I fell in love with Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy along the way and have added this powerful modality to my offerings for babies and adults, including pregnant people.  I call Reisterstown, Maryland home and am honored to serve individuals and families throughout Baltimore and surrounding areas.  Click here to view my birth and healing-related training and experience.

Holistic Birth Doula Care
and Childbirth Education

for pregnancy, birth, postpartum, and baby

As parents, we are truly primary care providers for our families.  I am here to amplify your inner wisdom and serve as a physical, emotional, informational, and spiritual resource on your journey from pregnancy to parenting.

You are inherently deserving of high-quality, culturally sensitive, individualized care and attention.  Please be in touch to discuss how I can best serve you and your growing family.

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy

gentle, effective bodywork for deep healing and transformation

In partnership with the rhythmic, tidal expression of your inherent health, we amplify your sense of well-being, resolve inertial patterns held in your tissues, expand your range of resilience, and enhance your creative self-expression.  This modality can be powerfully healing for all manner of acute and chronic conditions such as injuries, headaches, sleep & digestive challenges, immune problems, anxiety, PTSD, and much more. Because it is so gentle and non-invasive, there are no counter-indications to therapy. The work can be done lying down, sitting up, with pregnant people, babies, and seniors, even at a distance.

Homebirth Midwifery

I am currently practicing as a student midwife under the supervision of Bayla Berkowitz with Charm City Midwives and planning to open my own practice in 2023.

Please stay tuned for updates!

 

"Thank you for helping me reach the birth of my dreams." -ND

"She has become a powerful source of calm and compassion in my life. I feel completely seen and welcomed in Nets’s presence and have felt so safe exploring the magic and miracles of the birthing process physically, spiritually and emotionally through Nets’s leadership and support." -KV

"Nets is intuitive, and very easy to talk to and work with. She was a true blessing at my birth. As part of my birth team, she understood and respected my wishes for labor. She made helpful suggestions (but was never overbearing) and was willing to help in any way I asked! I felt so respected and accomplished!" -LH

"The coaching was unmatched. No video, class or tutorial I watched, allowed me to channel my energy the way her massage, soft spokenness and guidance, did." -AB

"Recently, I woke up in the morning with a severe and terrifying case of vertigo. I called Nets to ask her to come see me ASAP. She arrived within an hour and immediately began a craniosacral treatment... By the time she left, I felt safe, and, gratefully, about 90% free from symptoms of vertigo. The following morning, I was completely back to my normal self and deeply appreciative of her expertise!" -KG

"During a major health crisis which involved two unexpected surgeries, I was blessed to receive craniosacral therapy sessions with Nets. The sessions played a huge part in helping me to heal both emotionally and physically and to bring my nervous system back into a state of balance. Nets is a truly gifted practitioner whose calming presence, deep intuition and gentle touch will immediately help anyone to feel relaxed and at ease." -NZ
