Postpartum Doula and Lactation Counselor.
I am a mom of two very active teenage boys, and am married to Tom who is a Chef (lucky me). I always knew I wanted to work with children, and started a career in Montessori Early Childhood Education. After many years in the classroom I have found my passion to be helping families as they navigate the Postpartum time, and providing Lactation counseling to breastfeeding/ chestfeeding parents.
I hope to bring Postpartum care and Lactation support to all regardless of journey to parenthood, ability to pay, or prior parenting or infant feeding experiences. I imagine the possibility of a world where mom/partner gets the support they require in a nurturing, non-judgemental way.
