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. Today we honor you and thank you for choosing this profession and changing the way birth is done.

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.

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."

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.
