Bio

My passion for supporting people through the perinatal period came after I had my first child and found myself struggling to find my stride as a new parent. Breastfeeding, amongst other things, was a huge challenge for us in the first month. After I overcame these challenges, with the help of a Lactation Consultant and other supports, I wanted to give back and was drawn to a new career path of working with parent in the perinatal period, and ultimately becoming an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). I continue to see there is a societal gap in supporting parents and recognizing the hard work it takes to get through the often tumultuous first few months of an infant’s life. My focus is on supporting parents to achieve their personal feeding goals while providing emotional support during the extraordinary adjustment period of becoming a parent. When you have an appointment with me, you can expect attentive, compassionate and individualized care. Your details matter to me. I can help you find the resources for the solutions to supply, latch, pain, supplementation, and gassy, fussy baby, that will best fit you and your family. I am currently completing my clinical hours at Family Center Therapeutics to be come IBCLC certified. I will be supported by my mentors. I am trained as a postpartum doula from the Simkin Centre in Seattle, WA. I also volunteer with Pacific Postpartum Support Society and have taken their support skills and group facilitation workshop. I also founded and continue to run an online parenting support group that now serves 1, 300 members across the world with non-judgmental, evidence-based information. I live in a wonderful community in East Vancouver with my husband, two energetic children and elderly dog. We love to explore and enjoy nature both at home and abroad, traveling at every opportunity we get. I am a lover of books and can be found in a hammock immersed in a novel during the quiet moments in life.


Lactation Consultant, IBCLC Availability

Bio

I am a parent of three children. Following the home birth of my first in January of 2009 I suffered from postpartum depression and struggled for months with nursing challenges. My healing journey led me to discover the importance of the nursing relationship and the role of community in parenting. I became passionate about supporting families through the most important process of their lives: birth and the journey of becoming parents. Alongside my own nursing experiences in 2009 I began to volunteer my time supporting others to meet their nursing goals through a non-profit organization called La Leche League. Then I nourished my love for learning by becoming a Certified Breastfeeding Specialist, and in April of 2016 I passed the exam to be an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). I fell in love with the whole art and science of the breast/chest feeding relationship! I have found my degree in Social Work compliments my LC work very well in supporting nursing families with the foundation that the parent is the expert on their own body and baby. I am passionate about giving parents the information and support they need to make the best choices for their nursing journey.
