NEW YORK CITY AFFILIATED DOULAS
Marta Ginter– Tier 3
Marta is a DONA-trained Birth and Postpartum Doula, Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC) and Certified Babywearing Educator (via Center for Babywearing Studies). She has two daughters and it were her own pregnancies, births, breastfeeding and babywearing experiences that led her to working with new families. Marta believes in importance of supporting all caregivers in this unbelievably amazing but at times also challenging journey of pregnancy, birth and parenthood. She wants to help women have the best birth experience and to support them in their choices and decisions. From the first birth that she attented as a doula, she knew how important it is for women to have continuous, non-judgemental and supportive assistance during labor.
She is a strong advocate for babywearing, she teaches how to do it safely and comfortably to create this invaluable bond between the baby and the caregiver. She has a deep interest in topics ranging from skin to skin through kangaroo care to babywearing. Nursing and babywearing often go together, hand in hand, and Marta's lactation counselor background helps her to assist in combining the two. Marta also volunteers in a local chapter of Babywearing International as an educator. She lives in NYC with her husband and children. In addition to English, she speaks Polish and Spanish.
