So many may think this strange. How can a woman carry someone else’s baby. Watch this video. It is so beautiful. It takes a special woman to do this for a family. Not only once but.........This is what I call selfless love.

More and more women are encouraged by me to eat dates at the end if their pregnancy. I have seen the benefits in many of my clients. You have nothing to loose.

🇩 🇦 🇹 🇪 🇸 !

According to recent studies women who ate 6 dates a day for the four weeks leading up to their due date (starting at 36 weeks) were significantly more dilated and more likely to:

🔸Have intact membranes upon admission to the hospital
🔸Go into labor spontaneously
🔸Avoid pitocin
🔸Have a shorter first phase of labor
🔸Higher Bishop scores at admission to birthplace
🔸Greater cervical dilation compared
🔸More successful rates of labor induction.

Happy International Childbirth Education Week !

"January 25-31, 2020 is the inaugural International Childbirth Education Week. There are currently so many great health awareness weeks and months, and days that celebrate so many dedicated and caring people in health fields and fields surrounding families that you might think that everyone is covered or at the very least, who needs another observance week? So we thought we’d make a case for why the world needs International Childbirth Education Week."

Uninterrupted birth is always the best type of birth. Sometimes things don’t go as planned and an intervention may be necessary for the benefit of mom and baby. That’s totally ok as long as the laboring mom feels loved, respected, and fully supported. #momstrong #birthisnatural #birthisnormal #birthisamazing

Dear family and friends,

Hope this Holiday season was filled with wonderful memories. As we enter into 2020 let us all be thankful for what we have and continue to show love, compassion, and mercy to those who are in need.

As many of you are aware, for the last 6 years I had the honor of going on a short term Medical Missions trip with Handfuls of Hope to the Dominican Republic. On January 22 I will be heading out with a group of doctors, midwives, nurses, therapists, and those who love to serve to care for those who are in need. I have set up an Amazon list of supplies that we are collecting. If you would like to help, check out the link and donate to the cause. It would be greatly appreciated.

All donations must be received no later than Friday Jan 17 so keep that in mind when ordering. If possible, let me know if you send something so I can acknowledge you and your thoughtfulness when it arrives.

https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/20ZGYMGRDXKFK?ref_=wl_share

As in the past I will be posting daily updates and pictures on my page.

Wishing you all a Happy and Healthy New Year

I always teach the benefits of using a ball during pregnancy and birth but it is great for after birth too. It can be used to help calm a colicky crying baby while hopping gently up and down. Give it a try. What do you have to loose.

There is way to much mom shaming going around these days. Every single mama out there needs encouragement no matter if you are feeding at the breast or pumping, exclusively breastfeeding or using a bottle or whether you have chosen to give formula. Let’s show kindness, love, support and compassion to all mothers out there ❤️

Your motherhood is not measured by breast or pump, by output and ounces, by formula or bottle. 🤱

General information

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. Rosemarie

A beautiful baby girl has graced our world. Mama worked so hard and did an amazing job bringing her daughter in the world. Dad wasn’t so bad himself I must say. Thanks to the wonderful nurses and doctors at RWJ who made it all possible.
Almost 14 years ago you helped me bring this beautiful boy into the world.
