Feel free to call me your Fertility Coach, your Motherhood Counselor, your Life Doula, or simply, your Friend. Thirty-something wife and mom of a three-year-old and a set of almost two-year-old twins, (in)fertility warrior, community builder, supporter, friend, connector, counselor, advocate, doula, Licensed Master of Social Work based out of Manhattan.
After embarking on my own path to becoming a mother, something in me shifted. My passions, my identity, my purpose all took on new meanings. I realized how lonely it can be for those without community, support, or someone in their corner to guide them. From that moment I realized I wanted to help women setting out in this chapter of their lives-- whether they are struggling with infertility (as I did), pregnancy challenges, miscarriage or infant loss, life as a new mom, or all the spaces in between. I am particularly passionate about normalizing infertility, postpartum challenges, pressures associated with social media, breastfeeding and everyday struggles balancing life with infants and toddlers. I aim to add humor and my own personal reality to these and other parenting topics with the hope that it makes women understand they are not alone. I am in the trenches with you and we’re all just doing our best. My best, your best, is good enough. After co-founding a business, Mom MeetUps, that provided New York City moms with social gatherings and online forums, I have now chosen to offer personalized, one-on-one support to individuals looking for a safe space, a sounding board, and a knowledgeable resource on the journey to and through motherhood. In summer 2019 I will also be leading monthly, in-person support groups for women who are in the midst of their fertility journey.
I could not be more thrilled to finally launch this endeavor. It’s been a long time in the works. After taking many different paths to get here, yet always working in the “mom space” with any spare moment I had, this is the exact right moment in my life to make this happen. With inspiring women surrounding me, a deep network of fertility warriors, members of my mom tribe, and my truly supportive friends and family, It’s Conceivable, by Rebekah Rosler, is born.
I work with women in all different phases of their motherhood journey -- from those who are just learning about their particular fertility challenges, exploring their options, and undergoing the treatment process, to women recovering from loss and finding their way forward. In addition, I have supported women from their early days of pregnancy, through giving birth and the postpartum stage, and into their early months and years of parenting.
I look forward to supporting you throughout your own personal journey.

What are my qualifications?
Do I work with women both with and without fertility challenges?
Of course! As this was my personal path to motherhood, I’m uniquely attuned to the needs of women in the midst of fertility struggles. Above all, I am passionate about helping and empowering women, regardless of circumstance, and welcome the opportunity to work with anyone seeking support through conceiving, pregnancy, and motherhood.
Am I accepting birth and postpartum clients for doula services?
Not currently. But you can always ask about my availability when your time comes.
I graduated from New York University with a Masters in Social Work in 2004, obtained my license soon after, and have been working in the support space ever since. After experiencing fertility issues, two pregnancies (a singleton and a twin), and labor, delivery, and postpartum struggles, I became acutely aware of the physical and emotional challenges that women face before, during and after childbirth; so I trained as a birth and postpartum doula in 2018 through Doula Trainings International (DTI). Along with managing numerous Facebook support groups, I also run in-person fertility support groups throughout New York City. I’ve helped, counseled, supported, coached, and guided thousands of women from around the world on their path to motherhood.
