Postpartum Doula and Lactation Counselor.
I am a mom of two teenage boys, I am married to Tom who is a Chef (lucky me). I love to travel, read, run, ride bikes, practice yoga, hang out with my family and learn new things. I was born and raised in South Africa. 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 out families as they navigate the Postpartum time and providing Lactation counseling to breastfeeding 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.
