Meet Your Doula

Martha Goldstein

Birth Doula, PreNatal Yoga Instructor as well as Jivamukti, Vinyasa & Power Yoga Instructor 

Martha’s love of caring for and nurturing young children began as a theatre counselor and nurses assistant at her own day camp at the age of twelve. After that her love of infants became her priority doing an internship in the maternity ward at St. Vincent’s Hospital in Greenwich Village at the age of fifteen. Her first birth was her sister’s and she decided then that she would become a midwife. Unfortunately school and life got in the way and she focused her energies in a very diferent direction. She had been dancing professionally since her childhood with Nuebert Ballet at Carnegie Hall as well as The Martha Graham School of Contemporary Dance and with Frank Hatchett & Gregory Hines at Broadway Dance Center in NYC. She went on to study Theatre, Dance and Movement at NYU Tisch School of the Arts receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 1996. She then taught modern contemporary dance & movement and began teaching Yoga in 2003. Over the years she sought out and studied with the best teachers on the East & West coast...such as Sharon Gannon, David Life, Dharma Mittra, Ana Forrest, Alan Finger, Nora Mangiamele, Gio Moskios (Power Yoga) to name a few...when she finally took her first 200 hour training with Yogaworks in Southern California.  After teaching in California for a few years and working for Yogaworks primarily with the prenatal instructors learning as much as she could, she decided to move back east. She went on to take her Jivamukti training in 2010 at The Omega Institute and eventually began teaching at the Jivamukti Union Square studio later that year. She also went on to manage The JivamukTea Café on the premises, where she became deeply involved in animal rights and Veganism. She also previously taught at Devotion Yoga in Hoboken, NJ & with Yoga in the Heights in Jersey City, NJ. She opened her own Movement & Yoga space in Weehawken in 2014 called The Soul Garage where she was able to incorporate Yoga, Movement, and teaching the community about the benefits of a Vegan lifestyle. She has now continued her path in the healing arts with her journey as a Birth Doula and Breastfeeding consultant having received her training with well known Prenatal Yoga instructor, Birth Doula & Lactation Consultant Kimberly Weiss-Lewitt from Birth Arts International

Why I Became a Doula...

I got pregnant for the first time at the age of 36. I was unmarried, in a very new relationship and scared shitless.  But I wanted to be a Mother so the decision was made.…
