Coral Springs, FL – Pregnancy, preparation and parenting… The most incredibly exhilarating yet mildly terrifying sensation can be the moment a person realizes that they’re going to be responsible for a child’s life. For pregnant women, the spectrum of emotions can turn moments of happiness into instances of deep sadness. For their family and significant others in their lives, support is equally necessary for a multitude of reasons. Everyone desires a smooth and easy pregnancy, both physically and emotionally. The reality is that this is no simple task and thankfully there are trained Doulas like Martha Lerner of zenmamalove.
Martha spent over 15 years as a Middle School/High School teacher and always felt a deep connection towards helping others. Martha experienced the birth of her son at the age of 38 and suffered from post-partum depression. Losing her mother at a young age, Martha didn’t have the support system that is often necessary for a new parent after giving birth but she was fortunate enough to be introduced to a Doula. While attempting to continue teaching, Martha realized ultimately that her heart was no longer there as she yearned to help others to avoid the feelings and issues that she experienced firsthand.
Martha became a certified Doula and since then has focused all of her attention on empowering women and assisting them and their families to navigate through the twists and turns that pregnancy and parenting can bring. Understanding that everyone is different, Martha is able to bring a unique approach to every individual and family that she encounters. By phone, email, text, individual and group sessions: Martha makes herself completely accessible to everyone she works with. Additionally, Martha teaches babywearing classes and several parenting workshops including Peaceful Parenting 101.
