I grew up in beautiful South Africa, and moved to Florida with my family in 1995. From a young age I knew I wanted to work with children, and started a career in Montessori Early Childhood Education. I enjoyed many years in the classroom and have since found my second passion- helping families as they navigate the Postpartum time as a Postpartum Doula, and providing Lactation counseling to breastfeeding/ chest-feeding parents. I moved to Massachusetts in 2017 with my husband and two teenagers. I love to read, cook, practice yoga, travel and spend time with my family.
I hope to bring Postpartum care and Lactation support to all regardless of journey to parenthood, ability to pay, or prior parenting or infant feeding experiences. I imagine the possibility of a world where mom/partner gets the support they require in a nurturing, non-judgmental way.
