Greetings! and welcome to my blog about pregnancy, birth, postpartum, breastfeeding, parenting... where I share my passion and knowledge for all things relating to maternal and child health (MCH). I also have pages for information about services I provide, such as doula and lactation consulting.
In this blog I address a large variety of MCH topics including: modern maternity care, birth options, prenatal and perinatal psychology, global MCH, infant care, immunization, circumcision, breastfeeding, postpartum care, resource reviews, policies, programs, initiatives, and so much more!
I obtained my Master's degree in Public Health, with a concentration in Maternal and Child Health from the University of South Florida in 2013. I have been a certified practicing birth doula with DONA International since 2012, re-certified in 2015, and I am also an Internationally Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) as of 2015.
I previously held a certification as a Certified Lactation Counselor from Healthy Children's Center for Breastfeeding from 2012-2015 which I did not renew because I was sitting for the IBCLC exam.
Whether you are a fellow doula, birth professional, current or future parent, or just someone interested in a MCH related topic, I invite you to poke around my blog and feel free to leave a comment about something interesting or controversial. I always welcome other insights and opinions!
