About me

I am a certified postpartum doula, a certified breastfeeding counselor, I teach pre/postnatal yoga, I am a new mom's group facilitator and a mom to an amazing 6 year old. My passion and fascination with all things moms, babies, and kids has put me on the path of providing open-minded support to my clients and students whatever their choices may be.

How I work with parents

As a pre/postnatal yoga teacher I will help you to quiet your mind to get better sleep, tone your body to prepare for labor and postpartum, and release aches and pains associated with pregnancy and postpartum. I will help you to locate your breath to sustain you during labor and to help you calm the mind during the challenges of postpartum.

As a postpartum doula, I will be there to listen to your birth story, help you with breastfeeding, make meals, do laundry, tidy up and do the dishes. I will educate you on newborn care, advise on sleeping, feeding, diapering, and newborn behavior. I will check in with you about how you are feeling physically and emotionally. I will give you tips on how to get a better night’s sleep. I will help you with your carrier or wrap and get you out into the sunshine with your baby. I will listen. I will provide referrals for practitioners to further support you and your baby if needed. I will shop for groceries. I will offer postpartum yoga one-on-one to assist with healing, relaxation and to help you “re-enter” her body after the transforming period of pregnancy and childbirth. I will honor your parenting choices and support your decisions taking health and safety into consideration at all times. I will care for the baby while you nap. When your partner goes back to work, I will be there and will still be listening. I will be there for you.

As a certified breastfeeding counselor, I will help you with latch, positioning, timing of feeding and pumping. I will also determine if there may be other problems that are inhibiting the transfer of milk and will refer you to an IBCLC if necessary.

If I do my job well, I will provide you maximum self-determination. I will enable you and your partner so that the deep “new parent learning curve” will start to look more and more like a hilly path that can be carefully navigated, going over the bumps and around the curves together, as a confident new family unit.

Postpartum planning: a workshop for pregnant and postpartum parents

by Tina G.

Now is the time to think about what happens AFTER the birth of your baby, when you are sent home to start your life as a new parent. What will those first weeks or months really look like? What is the plan for when mom is alone to fend for herself? What about sleep? What about the transition of going back to work? Won’t maternity leave just be like an extended vacation? Please join Tina Goldstein, postpartum doula, for an interactive workshop to help you get a heads up on the realities of postpartum and devise your own postpartum plan. Find out how to plan for meals, get more sleep and ensure that you have the necessary resources when needed, including the name of a trusted IBLC (what’s that?) or a New Parents Support Group. The workshop will include time for discussion with your partner (or family member or doula) so that you and your partner will leave with a sense of “being on the same page” in knowing what to expect in the 4th trimester and how to plan for it. This workshop is open to couples as well as single parents who are pregnant or newly postpartum. Babies are welcome. COST: $125 Partner Rate / $90 Single Rate
