Batya Doyet was born in Russia, Odessa. She was a midwife by profession.
In her youth she came to America (along with her sister Hannah Ziger) and then immigrated to Eretz Israel in 1890.
In the beginning of her days in Eretz Israel, she worked in Rosh Pina as a midwife. In 1919 she came to Rishon Lezion and continued here her practice. It has been said that she was riding from place to place to deliver babies and once fell off the horse (or donkey). Since then she was a lame.
She worked as a midwife for decades. At her old age she lived in an Old People's Home in Tel Aviv and when she died, was brought to burial in the old cemetery in Rishon Lezion.
