Mary Esther Malloy and Consultation Services

I have counseled women about their birth experiences since 2002, both privately and in group settings. If you are looking for support as you prepare for birth, I invite you to set up a consultation. If you have given birth by cesarean and are working through your experience of birth or any challenges with parenting, breastfeeding or recovery, please reach out.

20% off of the initial consult if you have purchased the Toolkit 

Package of three 45-minute consultations: $195.

Package of five 45-minute consultations: $410.

To set a consultation, simply email me at

I will ask you to fill out an intake form and we will find a time to speak.

 A little about me…

I am the owner of Mindful Birth NY since 2002.  I have the pleasure of working as a doula, a Bradley birth educator, a New Moms Talk Group facilitator and birth counselor.  I also work as a birth advocate with Choices in Childbirth and have certified with Neuroscience for Improved Neonatal Outcomes (NINO) as a doula who offers Kangaroula[SM] Care.

I hold a masters degree in anthropology and write regularly about birth. You might find these articles of mine of interest:

  • Slowing Down at Birth for Vulnerable Newborns, published in the Journal of Perinatal Psychology and Health
  • Delayed Cord Clamping Needs a New Table, published in Midwifery Today
  • Getting Smart About Smart Technology, published in Midwifery Today

I have recorded the following relaxation and birth visualizations

  • The Mindful Cesarean
  • Birth Pause Labor Visualization
  • Meditation and Massage for Pregnancy
  • Breath Practice for Labor

My husband and I are the parents of three children, ages six to 14.  They are the lights of our lives.

I am so glad you have found The Mindful Cesarean. It is my sincere wish that the tools and perspective offered here are of help to you and your family.
