In the Past...

…Women helped women… Children were raised by the community…  New mothers 
were not left alone.

Childbearing women and their babies were nurtured, cared for and supported through an extensive family structure. This consisted of grandmothers, aunts, cousins, siblings, and friends who were available, willing and able to help care for the “newborn family."  Today, in our American culture and society, we are missing this important lesson in regard to how families were so wonderfully supported during birth, the postpartum period and beyond.  It is so important for a new mom to be able to take care of herself so that she has the energy to care of her baby.

I am an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), and an in network provider with Aetna. Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator (LCCE), Certified Birth Doula, Certified Therapeutic Tummy Time MethodTM Instructor (TTMTM) and completed Postpartum Support International (PSI) 2-day Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders Training Course. I'm dedicated to providing supportive breastfeeding care, postpartum care and support and education services to parents and their families.

I would love to help you and your family have a more comfortable, satisfying and empowering birth and postpartum experience. Whatever your vision for your journey – I want to help you achieve it!
