My name is Rosemarie DiMare and I am a DONA Certified Birth Doula and Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator. I have been educating and assisting birthing families in Monmouth, Middlesex and surrounding counties in NJ since 1997. I support couples in hospitals as well as those who choose to birth their baby at home with a midwife.
When I got pregnant with my second child, my husband and I decide to hire a doula to assist us during my labor. The experience was so amazing. After seeing first hand the benefits of continuous emotional and physical support throughout my long and beautiful labor, I knew I was being called into this profession.
Over the years, Mother to Mother has expanded its service to not only specialize in supporting families during birth, but to educate them about healthy safe birth practices and to help them to develop confidence in themselves and the birth process. I am involved with (I-CAN), International Cesarean Awareness Network. My specialty is counseling, educating, and supporting women who desire a vaginal birth after prior cesarean. I am also trained as a Hypnobirthing Doula and have had many years experince working with Hypnobirthing couples.
Mother to Mother has been known for its “Personalized Professional Care.” Time spent prenatally with my birthing couples has enabled me to develop a special bond with them prior to labor. This has helped the birthing mother feel a sense of peace and safety which allows her to be more relaxed both physically and mentally. My families are pleased knowing they have a “Special Woman” trained to be with them throughout labor. My job is not to take the place of the partner, but to make the partner feel less pressured so he can tend to the birthing mother without feeling like he has to perform.
When I am not teaching or assisting at births, I enjoy vacationing, taking walks along the beach with my husband John and spending time with my sons John and Nicholas. When I find time alone, I enjoy nothing more than curling up on the couch with a good book and a delicious cup of coffee. In the fall of 2015 I received a recognition award from the American College of Nurse Midwives for my work and dedication to birthing mothers.
As I sit and reflect back over my years as a doula and childbirth educator, I feel totally blessed to be in this profession and look forward to many more years preparing and guiding families through the amazing journey of childbirth.
