About Me

I am a fun loving mother to two spirited little boys and two amazing step-children. The birth of my first son, impacted my life greatly. While he stayed apart from me, in intensive care, the only way I could be a mother to him, was to breastfeed him. Our breastfeeding relationship continued to grow and we breastfed for over two years. It was during this time, that I realized how much of an impact breastfeeding has on both baby and mother and how I wanted to help mothers with their breastfeeding goals. After completing my lactation education, I left my teaching profession to work with mothers and babies.

 

 

My Philosophy

I strongly believe in helping mothers achieve their personal breastfeeding and mothering goals. I closely watch the relationship between mother and baby, allowing them to guide the process.

 

There is no greater joy in life than watching a mother craddle her newborn, stare deeply into their eyes and quietly whisper......I love you.

"It was crucial to me that I breastfeed my baby and Caitlin was there to see that through since my pregnancy.  Breastfeeding is a journey that takes determination and the support Caitlin provided has been invaluable. I attribute a large part of my son's health and happiness to nursing, and him and I have developed a true and beautiful connection we may not have achieved otherwise. I am so grateful to Caitlin for her visits and availability to answer all of my many questions! She is a knowledgeable, energetic, and passionate Lactation Consultant."
