I am an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), a Maryland Registered Nurse, a Birth Activist and a Reiki Practitioner. My language skills span English, Portuguese and Spanish.
I started my passion for breastfeeding and childbirth, while I was still in college. I love to teach prenatal breastfeeding classes for the new mothers-to-be. Thus, empowering them with knowledge.
When I started to work as Nurse, the only area that appealed to me was Maternal Child. This field is where my inner soul is.
My experience is a culmination of 8 years supporting mothers with breastfeeding services. I had also worked as a Maternal Child Health Nurse in prenatal, labor and delivery, postpartum and nursery. I had assisted mothers and babies achieve their breastfeeding and childbirth goals.
As an IBCLC, I had seen more than 800 breastfeeding mother-baby in a hospital setting and private practice. I am an Aetna in-network provider. I am also working on the IBCLC license. So, more mothers will be able to receive the expert evidenced- based breastfeeding care, without cost sharing.
I have been supporting many mother-infant couplets with breastfeeding services such as:
As a mother of two kids, I really enjoyed breastfeeding my kids for more than 5 years. On my spare time, I love to practice yoga, zumba, to read, to pray and spend time with my family and friends.
