My transition to becoming a parent helped spark my interest and love for all things pregnancy, childbirth, lactation, and parenting related. Weeding through all the misinformation available, I realized that I wanted to be a resource to parents to help them find the up-to-date and evidence based information they need to help them make the best informed decision for their families. I have experience supporting clients through fertility, unmediated births, medicated births, cesarean births, VBACs, childbirth education, postpartum support, breastfeeding, formula feeding, pumping, weaning, placenta encapsulation, belly binding, military and more. Every person has different needs and I am confident that I can help you on your individual journey and help you find the resources you need.
