Eggs are more than breakfast

     Here is some helpful advice for anyone who is expecting a newborn, has a newborn or plans to ever have children. I discuss this issue during the lactation course I offer as a Certified Lactation Counselor and also as a labor doula, during the prenatal visits. Visuals are helpful and some can be reused as a delicious meal.

Not so April fools, here I am world!

logo-with-quote     Beyond Birth Doula is officially public and hitting the ground running.
      I am taking on this new adventure as a business owner with a passion. It’s been a field I’ve been involved with for years but it’s time for me to take a huge step and become what I know will be a serious asset to this community. Having three years as a Certified Lactation Consultant and training as a Postpartum Doula, I have up-to-date education along with my passion to help others. I want to reach as many moms, dads, families and their supporters in this wonderful community I get to call home.
      If you’ve been blessed to become a new parent, then you realize how rough the beginning of parenthood can be, truth is, parenthood at any time is challenging, but those first months can take a lot of additional love and support to accomplish (by “accomplish” I mean seeing the end of those early months with hair still attached to your head!)
      As a Lactation Counselor, I have seen firsthand the struggles a family gets put through, not only caring for this tiny human being, but also to care for themselves and anyone else in the home. That’s how Postpartum Doula became my goal for 2016. Well BOOM, goal accomplished! My passion in this industry is continually growing and furthering my education is highly important to me, so make sure to stick around to see what additional areas come along this year.
     I’m extremely passionate to help mothers through their journey of breastfeeding but I also want to include an extended area of support. Being encouraging yet nonjudgmental, along with educational support for families, I want to assist growing families succeed during those first few weeks and on-going months in more areas then just breastfeeding.
     Newborn care, sibling care, family role changes, sleep abilities, light household chores, day to day errands, and pet care to mention a few areas, is what I’m here to help parents “accomplish”.
     While I go through this journey I’ve decided a blog sounds like a tremendous outlet. My Blog Topics may amuse you or possibly disgust or offend you. Note: These Blog Topics will be my personal thoughts, stories and information to tell and will not include any past, present or future work related stories of my clientele. Sharing my own experiences with you, so that you know you’re not alone during this grueling marathon of parenting. My growing mission in helping others will be accomplished through these blogs with hopes they make you giggle and forget for a moment the daily worries of life.
 Here is to the beautiful beginning of a business
