~ A Letter From Your Certified Postpartum Doula ~
Hello and thank you for visiting my website!
My birth name is Jennifer, but my professional stage name,
Dalia has become somewhat of an endearing nickname in other circles!
You can call me Dalia or Jennifer, whichever makes you most comfortable!
That is my soul purpose, making you and your family as comfortable
and cared for, during the postpartum period.
I am a proud mom to three joyful children!
I am also a Certified Professional Postpartum Doula, through DONA.
My dual profession is that of a Professional Egyptian Dancer!
I have lovingly cared for children, as an elementary school teacher
for over a decade and have nannied during my college years, as well.
I am currently working with New Jersey moms and their families; serving Essex, Morris and Sussex County; affectionately offering postpartum support, immediately after birth, up to twelve weeks. Building upon my lifelong passion for dance, I have gained certification as a Prenatal and Postpartum Fitness Educator, adding to my teachings
as a seasoned Dance Instructor. I am constantly adding public and private classes within the community; gentle, Egyptian dance lessons for pregnant moms and new moms residing in Essex, Morris and Sussex County.
As a mom who has sadly suffered through three miscarriages, I have created a class just for these moms. These specialized classes are rooted in healing; offering tenderness to women in mourning; experiencing the heaviness of pregnancy loss.
I invite you to visit my Dance Instruction Page to learn more.
Having a baby is life changing and it would be my honor, to offer assistance to you and your family, during this sensitive, transitional period. "Research by experts tells us what many have long suspected; that new parents who have support and feel secure and cared for during this time, are more successful in adapting."

Please note, as a Postpartum Doula,
I cannot diagnose medically related conditions,
but can refer you to a local health care practitioner, if need be.
Also, I cannot offer heavy housecleaning,
but can lend a hand, when it comes to tidying.
Kindly, feel free to contact me, so we can work out a schedule;
