Divya Kumar Co-Producer and Director – 15 years ago, Divya tried to be a rock star. After a couple years of gigs and a CD of original music, she went to public health school and has carved a meandering and unique career path in the women’s health field. After her second child was born, she began facilitating new moms’ groups and has since provided perinatal emotional support to local families with a fresh voice, honesty, and humor. With her infectious energy and relentless ability to tell it like it is, Divya creates community and camaraderie amidst the insanity of parenthood. Her writing has been published on the Huffington Post, Postpartum Progress, and the Mamafesto, and she was a LTYM cast member in 2015. She lives in Jamaica Plain with her college-sweetheart-turned-husband and their two children, with whom she still sings loudly. During the summer, she is on the beach, and during the winter, she is baking brownies and knitting.
