Welcome to M.A.M.A.S.!

Little Girl Kissing New Sibling to Be

M.A.M.A.S. is a full-scope midwifery practice, serving Washington DC and the close-in Maryland suburbs of DC. Our certified nurse-midwives offer prenatal care, birth services, postpartum care, well-woman gyn care, family planning, and breastfeeding/early parenting assistance in the comfort of your home.

Who we are

M.A.M.A.S. is a bilingual partnership of two Certified Nurse-Midwives (CNMs). Mairi Breen Rothman, CNM and Erin E. Fulham, CNM both hold degrees in nursing and certificates of nurse-midwifery from programs accredited by the American College of Nurse-Midwives, are certified by the American Midwifery Certification Board, and are licensed to practice in both DC and Maryland. Together, Erin and Mairi have over twenty years of experience as midwives attending births at home, in birth centers and in hospitals.

What we do

We offer prenatal care, birth services, well-woman gyn care, family planning, and breastfeeding/early parenting assistance. Most visits are conducted in the place of your choosing in the DC Metro Area, using our fully-equipped state-of-the-art mobile office.  Prenatal care is offered in a combination of home visits and Community Care: bringing together a group of moms (and their families) due in the same month, to discuss prenatal exercise, nutrition, self-care, breastfeeding, and preparation for birth, while building community and sharing a nutritious snack.

Why we do what we do

We are committed to providing women with holistic, safe, affordable options for their births and well-woman care, in English or in Spanish, regardless of ethnicity, immigration status, sexual orientation or insurance situation (See MAMAS In Action). We believe every woman deserves a midwife.

How to find out more

This website is a work in progress, and we are much better midwives than web designers. So if you have questions, please contact us at:
