Doula Jamie Barber sees childbirth for the transformative process it is for parents and helps them prepare for it each step of the way. As a doula, she meets with parents-to-be throughout their pregnancies and helps educate them on their options, from their birthing plans to actual deliveries. Though a lot of focus is on the birth, Jamie also uses her knowledge and experience to help parents understand and cope with the changes in their lives throughout the pregnancy; she offers Birthing from Within classes as a concentrated guide to help parents understand the process of planning childbirth and delivery.
To the board-certified physicians at Ani Orthopaedic Group, injuries are like snowflakes: each one is unique.

At each of its 18 New Jersey and Pennsylvania locations, Advanced Laser Center's teams of licensed staffers harnesses noninvasive lasers and lPL technology for a series of skin- and health-enhancing treatments.

Light beams in IPL treatments, meanwhile, enrich epidermises during skin-rejuvenation and skin-tightening sessions. To balance out the laser-centric services, Advanced Laser Center also beautifies clients with chemical peels and Botox treatments.
At 5th Avenue Beauty, aestheticians glitz up nails with shimmering polish, stylists accentuate hairstyles with highlights, and massage therapists soothe aches with calming massages.
