This is birth ❤️

Shared with permission! This momma had a super fast labor. In Midwife terms, it was precipitous. When dad called a few minutes before arrival and said she feels like pushing gloves were on and ready. Although I thought we'd have time to get inside, this little one had other plans. The Police just so happened to be across the street & heard the commotion and walked over to see if help was needed.. Multitasking by catching a baby and letting them know we were all good was quite the experience! One of the most exciting births of 2020 😂 One we won't forget! Mom & baby are doing amazing and we can all laugh at how awesome this birth was. Especially because the cops looked pretty shell shocked! 🤭😆✨ #birthhappens #babieswaitfornoone #birthwithoutfear #midwifelife #joysofbirth #loveourjob #alwaysexciting #midwives #birthisbeautiful #birthworker #birthchoices #naturalbirth #birthcenterbabies #midwifery #birthoptions #trustingthebody #mothertomothersupport #supportmoms #supportingfamilies #supportmidwives

So, if you are cuddling or rocking or your baby needs a breastfeed to fall asleep, whatever his age, you are not failing and you are not failing your baby by neglecting to ‘teach’ him a skill (as self settling is presented). You can’t teach a baby to walk before his little muscles are developed enough; you can’t teach him to talk before his oral structures and the brain wiring that enables this are present and he won’t be able to truly ‘self soothe’ no matter how long you leave him to cry himself to sleep, until he has developed the brain structures and cognitive skills that enable emotional regulation – in other words, the ability to calm himself when he becomes upset.

The Beauty in Uncertain Times

Our nation and our world has gone through some challenging times over the last several months.
We have all heard of the unfortunate , scary, and sad details birthing women and their families have had to endure during labor and postpartum. Women laboring alone and isolated without their partners and or doulas, and babies being separated from their mamas are just a few of the many unforeseen things that have occurred recently.
For the last 23 years I have had the honor of educating and supporting birthing women during what is supposed to be a joyous and memorable event. Due to this pandemic I have felt the pain and anguish of many of my childbirth students and doula clients.
There is one thing that is certain during these uncertain times and it is women are STRONG, women are CAPABLE, women are FEARLESS, and women who are supported and encouraged can do anything they put their heart and mind to.
Last night as we were winding Mother’s Day celebration down at Casa DiMare I got called to support one of my doula clients. This was not her first and the midwife and I suspected things would progress faster this time around. Mama worked with her body, tuned in to what her body was expressing, and accepted the suggestions that were given to her by her support team. No doubt she felt pain but she had it under control to the best of her ability.
After her baby was born the feeling of pure joy took over. This mama went from dealing with pain to the pleasure of having her baby nestled in her arms. At one point as I was taking photos of her she looked like a goddess sitting up in her bed gracefully holding her precious child in her arms. The room was dimly lit as the voices around her praised her for what she had done.
During these uncertain times it became apparent to me that beauty in birth still exists. Women are still strong and still amazing.
I feel so blessed to have been part of this powerful birth. So blessed to work along side an amazing midwife, (thank you Dina), so blessed to be a childbirth educator and birth doula. No better way to end Mothers Day than by welcoming a beautiful 8 lbs 13 oz baby girl safely at home. God Bless

To all the wonderful midwives I have had the honor of working along side with over the years. You are all so appreciated and loved by myself and the thousands of birthing families you have touched along the way.

The first week of May in the past was dedicated to honoring all the educators who put their blood , sweat, and tears into educating our children. While we still honor them I think it’s important to honor all the childbirth educators like myself who have changed the way we teach to meet the needs of the birthing community during this pandemic. We don’t know for sure how long this is going to last but rest assured we are here to help educate you and support you along the way. The method may be different but the love and passion that goes into it is even greater during this time of need. Mother to Mother wishes everyone a safe and blessed birth experience.

“All by myself “ is not how laboring women envisioned how it would be. Unfortunately this is our new normal, although temporary. My heart is so heavy lately. I pray for this to be over soon.

No partners. No doulas. Giving birth alone is hardly what these women had in mind.

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.
