My number one priority is to empower you as a parent - to share with you the most current research-based information about what babies and children need, and to assist you in meeting those needs in a way that feels easy and natural for the whole family. I believe that a strong attachment between infants and their parents lays the foundation for a family relationship that is strong and healthy for a lifetime. I help parents and families find their own unique groove - you're the expert on your baby, and I can help you tap into your own wisdom and instincts to find the sweet spot where parenting feels easy (at least some of the time!)
I am supportive of all families, however they were created. I'm LGBTQ+ friendly, and have experience and knowledge about the issues involved in adoption, infertility, assisted conception, pregnancy and neo-natal loss, and maternal mental health.
I've been helping families adjust to parenthood for decades - as a friend, a nanny, in my work at a locally-owned mom & baby store, as a trained babywearing educator, as an accredited breastfeeding facilitator through La Leche League Canada, and as a trained postpartum doula. I've been around babies and young kids all my life, and I want to share my experience, knowledge, and ideas with you.
