A Bit About Me

Everybody has their own unique breastfeeding journey. I am the proud mother

of two children, Natalie and Nicholas. I breastfed them both and

found great joy and pride in my motherhood. Now that they are grown up, I find purpose in

helping new mothers find success in their breastfeeding journey.
