about Dr Diane S. Speier, author
Hi! I’m Diane.

I am a practicing psychotherapist and hypnotherapist, specializing in perinatal psychology, perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, and recovering from birth trauma. I am also a celebrant, co-creating ceremonies with my clients that mark life’s significant transitions, helping to restore the sacred nature of life-changing events.

Before immigrating to the UK, I was the founder/director of The Family Tree Centre for Parents in New York, offering classes, groups and workshops for prospective and new parents for 20 years. I became a certified childbirth educator and started attending births as a doula in 1978. My book, Life After Birth: A Parent’s Holistic Guide for Thriving in the Fourth Trimester (Praeclarus Press, 2019), draws on my 40+ years of experience helping parents make a smooth transition from pregnancy to parenthood. Digital Doula®2.0, its companion app, is designed to complement and supplement the book with additional material and resources not included in the book, and brings the links in the book to life.
