Welcome to Mamarama: Certified Childbirth Educator and Birth Consultant
I am a certified childbirth educator, who also teaches newborn care and breastfeeding in groups or privately. NEW class for 2016 is "Babycare Refresher for Grandparents" please see click on classes for more details on all current class options. In addition to teaching, I am also available as a postpartum doula, to help ease the transition into motherhood after your baby is born. 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 seven years experience in the field.
The name Mamarama comes from my popular public access show about pregnancy and parenthood which debuted in 2003. If you can't catch Mamarama in Jersey City, find me on YouTube or click on some of the links provided here. Check out my regular column in The Jersey City Independent, where I cover many parenting topics from birth to teen pregnancy.

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."
