My mission is to offer counseling, support and help to pregnant and breastfeeding mothers during the period in a woman’s life that can be both monumentally exquisite, and yet overwhelmingly fragile. I approach birth and breastfeeding from a place of acceptance. I do not tell mothers what they “should” or “shouldn’t” do. Rather, I listen to the needs of the mother and baby, so we may find a comfortable plan that feels right. None of us are alike. Each mother and baby are individuals with unique circumstances, and they ought to be treated with consideration for their specific needs as well as respect for their religious and cultural beliefs. My mission is to help make possible a gentle transition from being pregnant to becoming a breastfeeding mom.
