It is my passion to help you gain the confidence and skills you will need as parents through evidence-based education, practical suggestions, and competent demonstrations. As an Advanced Lactation Consultant through the Academy of Lactation Policy & Practice, I can provide current breastfeeding information and ensure that you reach your breastfeeding goals as well as achieve pain-free, efficient, nursing experiences.
The imagery and symbolism of the koru is part of my philosophy. The koru is a fern bud, otherwise known as a fiddlehead; as it opens, it brings new life and purity into the world. It embodies peace, tranquility, and spirituality, along with a strong sense of regrowth or new beginnings. Interlocking koru shapes represent the strength of loving relationships within a family. My hope is that the koru can inspire you during this time in your lives.
Education about newborn care techniques, mother care, partner and sibling adjustment, early childhood development, postpartum mood disorders, breast and bottle feeding as well as coping skills.
