Welcome to Mamarama Childbirth Educator and Postpartum Doula 
 
I am a certified childbirth educator, breastfeeding counselor and postpartum doula. As a postpartum doula, my role is to help ease the transition into parenthood after you return home with your baby. This includes breastfeeding and bottle-feeding support, emotional reassurance and practical advice for making life with a new baby enjoyable and stress-free. In addition to my postpartum work I teach regular childbirth education classes as well as newborn care and breastfeeding in groups or privately. 

If you are newly pregnant and want to learn more about the birth options available to you, consider scheduling an in-person consult with me. Choosing a practitioner and birthing facility can be a daunting decision - particularly in the New York area. I can help you organize your options and make educated choices based on your preferences and utilizing over eight years experience in the field.

The name Mamarama comes from my former public access show about pregnancy and parenthood which debuted in 2003. I've also written regular blogs for The Jersey City Independent, Randomhousekids.com and chicpeajc.com covering many parenting topics from birth to teen pregnancy.

Also, my petition to the PATH train regarding pregnant women and priority seating...was a success! PATH has now installed recorded announcements in their entire fleet of trains that will remind passengers to offer priority seating to "pregnant, elderly and disabled riders."  Read press on this story accessed through link.
