Romy Karz Rapoport

Romy Karz Rapoport is a Certified Childbirth Educator through Informed Beginnings, and a Certified CAPPA Labor Doula. She is certified as a Pre and Post Natal Yoga Instructor through the Khalsa Way, Kundalini Yoga. She decided to expand her knowledge of Breastfeeding by becoming a Lactation Specialist through the Lactation Education Consultants and is also a La Leche Leader in the City of Malibu. She is a former Ballerina with the New York City Ballet. After the birth of her son, Gabriel in 1996 she became passionate about supporting and empowering others on their conscious journey into parenthood.

"My goal is to support you in any way I can. Through out my classes I will focus on ways to stay healthy and low risk through out pregnancy, labor and delivery. We will look at the normal birth process as a means to educate and empower so that confidence can replace fear in the unknown situations ahead. We will spend time addressing the physical, mental and emotional aspects of giving birth and practice hands on techniques to cope with the intensity of labor. I hope to be a resource to help provide information for you so as to allow you to make informed decisions for the safety and health of both mother and child. My goal is not only to prepare you for childbirth, but also to inspire you to look beyond pregnancy and birth and see the value and impact your decisions and actions have on the future. Lastly I intend to provide and facilitate a space for healthy communication which I feel is invaluable during this time as you expand your family."
