I love helping families figure out
Hospital, birth center, outpatient, home visits
I live with my partner and have one dog and one cat.
I love being in nature, hiking, biking, and travel. I gardening and cooking.
Ongoing education in Postpartum depression and mindfulness based practices. Craniosacral therapy for infants and children.
In 2007 I was working at a nurse midwifery birth center doing births, postpartum home visit follow ups and lots of lactation.
I fell in love with helping families work through difficulties of infant feeding and find success in their personal journeys. Empowering families to meet their goals or find ways to adjust and grow as a family is so rewarding.
Cherish the slow times, spend time every day doing some skin to skin and some time every day interacting with your baby (making faces, singing songs). This time does go so fast, and it can feel hard. Taking time to engage in these ways helps with bonding, helps with baby development and reminds you when you are tired and working so hard on being new parents that it is so worth it.
