An uncontrollable bout of flatulence during a prenatal yoga class is not a moment many women would like to revisit.But for Elena Melener, an actress, writer and mother of three in Nyack, it was a perfect plot point. “When it happened, I was devastated and felt a lot of judgment from the other women in the class,” recalls Melener. “But I always said I was going to make a sketch out of it. And I did.”

And that’s just one of the scenarios featured on "The Mom List," a web series created by Melener that began airing on Facebook in February.
