boober and Birth Day Presence Founder Wellness Brooklyn, NY
About Jada
Originally from LA, I have called New York home for 19 years. I am a longtime birth and postpartum doula, childbirth educator, certified lactation counselor, birth photographer, and mother of a spirited 11 year old girl and stepmother to 3 girls aged 9-13. I am an expert in maternal health and provide birth and breastfeeding consultation to TV shows, A-list actors, and major films, and frequently moderate and regularly appear on panels at top parenting conventions. I am also a media expert on childbirth, lactation, and parenting, regularly sought out by the New York Times, The Today Show, Time Out New York, NBC, CBS, E!, TLC and other outlets. Beyond boober, my latest business venture, I am also the founder of Birth Day Presence which, since 2002, has helped New York families bring more than 10,000 babies into the community with childbirth-education classes and doula matching services.
