The Mama Pathway Membership
Great Alone, Better Together.

The Mama Pathway is a complete, customizable, and comprehensive childbirth education course. But it’s not your traditional one. We explore all the usual stuff from what to know by trimester to how to prepare for and optimize your labor and birth experience, but we also go into how to be an empowered advocate for yourself and your baby, how to plan for your birth whether in hospital, birthing center or home, how to prevent and heal birth trauma, and the best natural support you could ever want for a healthy pregnancy and birth, from nutrition to what really works – and what to avoid – when it comes to herbs. Dr. Aviva is the midwife’s midwife, and walks with you through your pregnancy journey as she has for her midwifery clients and her patients for over 35 years.

You can enroll in any Mama Pathway classes without becoming an inner circle community member. But if you want to be part of an incredible community, and have all-access membership to all of the classes plus weekly support groups, the Mama Pathway Membership is for you!

Mama Pathway Members receive access to all courses, events, support groups, the private Facebook social community, and premium discounts on special events.

What Women Are Saying

Dr. Aviva Romm has been women and families through pregnancy, birth, and motherhood – and

Meet Aviva

For centuries, pregnancy, birth, and postpartum seen as a sacred, transformational, natural rite of passage – nourished and protected by a village of grandmothers, aunts, sisters, and friends who supported mama throughout every step, every push, every worry, fear, and obstacle. Unfortunately, we have lost so much of this trust in a woman’s body and the wisdoms and remedies that our ancestors have passed down for generations and generations to support her in becoming a mama.

Whether you wish to have a relaxed and healthy pregnancy and be knowledgeable about the process, you want to dive deep into the world of natural birth and motherhood, or you want to connect to the practices that have supported birth since the beginning of time – I am honored to guide you in navigating your journey and reclaiming this sacred tradition.

With love,

Dr. Aviva
