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 (click on classes for more details.) I have been teaching for over five years in and around New Jersey & New York. If you are newly pregnant and wondering 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 research and my 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.
Watch on Comcast Cable (Jersey City only), Channel 51 - Wednesdays at 10:00 pm and Thursdays at 6:30 pm.
