Baby Expo in NH and New England founder

Jen Middlemiss - founder 

Hello and welcome! I am Jen, founder of the NH Mama & Baby Expo. I'm also a senior midwifery student at the Midwifery College of Utah, prenatal yoga teacher, doula, childbirth educator, business & life coach, and mother of five boys. Through my unique prenatal yoga classes, natural birth education, and support before, during & after birth, I have been able to witness hundreds of families have inspired natural births.

I have worked with the midwives at The Birth Cottage of Milford, assisted a homebirth midwife in northern New Hampshire, and have witnessed many hospital births from Manchester to Littleton and all towns in between.  These experiences have shown me how amazing & strong women are and how important it is to arm yourself with information that leaves you feeling inspired and empowered! 

In 2013 I had a vision to take all the research and knowledge I've acquired over the past 18 years and make it accessible to my community! The NH Mama & Baby Expo was born. My sister in-law and I worked day and night, learning everything we could about how to make it happen! Our first event was a huge success, I kept going and have doubled in size each year! 

Brining together the top professionals in NH, New England and beyond make my heart burst open! Helping connect you to products that make your job, as a mother easier, helping you find the perfect midwife, hospital an/or birth professional to make your birth awe-Inspiring, helping you network with community resources, providing a space for free workshops for you to learn and giving away thousands of dollars worth of baby swag is my life work! 

Please join us this year for the biggest and best NH Mama & Baby Expo yet!

Greetings! I am Sara Melone, creator of New England Belly Baby Expo. I have had a deep passion for working with babies and families my entire life, beginning as a mother’s helper prior to the age of 10, and culminating with the exploration of early childhood education during college.

While working through my degree, I cultivated a career in finance and insurance. Ultimately, I built a successful business, but still felt something lacking.

Birth and babies had my heart, and it wasn’t long before they called me back. Giving birth to my own children presented more challenges than anticipated, and it awakened the calling like never before, to affect positive change to the current birth climate.

Since 2011, I have worked as a birth and newborn photographer, doula, placenta encapsulator, and energy healer in addition to being a mother of three (amazing) young children.

We are so blessed to live in such an amazing time. So many of us are tuned in, aware, and connected, from all corners of the globe. For a long time I have noted a need to bring more choice, more understanding, and better care to young families, and particularly to the postpartum woman.

My first step in fulfilling that need was the creation of KissaBelly Birth Arts, a perinatal wellness collaborative serving as a one-stop shop for everything pregnancy and birth. My next step was an event to bring together all the services, providers, products, and support to which every new family deserves unfiltered access.

I truly believe a positive birth and postpartum experience can be key to strengthening a woman's confidence as she learns to mother her baby. When we nourish, support, and strengthen the mother, we effectively nourish, support, and strengthen an entire generation. When we all work together toward that goal, we can help heal the world.
