I have always wanted to empower and support young families. In my early 20's, I was inspired to become a Birth/Postpartum Doula and Lactation Educator, before going on to become a Nurse Midwife, Nurse Practitioner and Lactation Consultant. Throughout my 20 years in the Perinatal Health field, I have always taught classes in Childbirth Education, Infant care, Infant feeding and yoga for pregnancy and postpartum. This is because we need to support the whole family in becoming as healthy as possible, so these precious children can be nurtured and loved to the fullest!
