This weeks show: “Boober: Rapidly Connecting New Parents to Expert Lactation Consultants”
Jada Shapiro joins the show to share how her new company is positively transforming the postpartum experience for new parents. Jada (pronounced Jah-duh) Shapiro is the founder of boober (launched 2017), where new parents go for expert, same-day, in-person lactation support and Birth Day Presence (founded 2002), NYC's longest-running and most trusted source of childbirth preparation classes and doula services. Ms. Shapiro is a renowned birth and postpartum doula, childbirth educator, lactation counselor, birth photographer, and mother to a 10-year-old. She was inspired to start boober after witnessing firsthand from her students and postpartum clients how the current health system has failed to support expectant and new parents. Her experience working on the ground with birth and postpartum professionals and new parents has enabled her to understand the nuances of successfully bridging a widening gap in a broken American healthcare system.
Over the past 15 years, Ms. Shapiro has survived the trials of building a successful, community-based business which has supported over 10,000 families, and has built a large network of top OB-GYN's, midwives, pediatricians, doulas, childbirth educators, lactation professionals, and postpartum care providers. She is an expert in maternal health and provides birth and breastfeeding consultation to major films (most recently working with Jennifer Lawrence in Darren Aronofsky's last feature), TV shows, and A-list actors, and frequently moderates and appears on panels at top parenting conventions.
Ms. Shapiro is also a sought-out speaker in media outlets including the New York Times, The Today Show, The Huffington Post, Crain's Business, NBC, CBS, E!and TLC. She is an advocate for underserved communities, and founded and ran the Bellevue Hospital Volunteer Doula Program to serve mothers who could not afford doula care.
If you're expecting or are a new parent and are curious about resources related to breastfeeding, pregnancy or postpartum help you'll want to learn more about services like boober and Birth Day Presence and how you can access support.
Quote from Jada:
When I started boober, I knew it would make an impact on new families, but I had no idea how truly transformative it would be to their daily experience and general outlook on new parenthood. Everyday I receive the most unbelievable texts of gratitude, sharing phrases like “you changed my life,” “my outlook has changed from despair to hope,” or “I'm so thankful for boober getting us on the right track.”
boober works because we're in the era of both on-demand services and a period of time, when people want to breastfeed at the highest rates since the 1940s.
Quote from Lorraine: “Jada Shapiro is a true advocate for maternal health. Her valuable services are amazing examples of the benefits of in-person, non-medical care and social support that is positively transforming the perinatal (pregnancy through postpartum) period and allows expectant and new mothers and families to feel confident and thrive.”
