Hello, welcome to my website, Mama Bee Lactation.
I am a mom to 12 kiddos, eight still at home. I originally started this website as The Nurtured Mother Postpartum Doula. I had a heart for helping new mamas to rest and heal.
As I helped moms I realized how much I loved the breastfeeding aspect of that care, so I set out to get more education on top of being a Certified Postpartum Doula and be able to help moms with breastfeeding and education.
When I started having babies in the 90s breastfeeding was not popular. Hospitals didn’t encourage it and I had no experience with it so I raised my first 6 babies on formula. By the time I was having baby #7 breastfeeding was back in vogue and I am so thankful for that.
There is so much help out there now.
I feel like having experienced both breastfeeding and formula feeding helps me to be able to identify with moms of different walks of life, although my passion is for helping moms to realize how beneficial breast milk is for their babies.
I love babies, birth, mothers and breastfeeding. As my children got older I knew I wanted to use my experiences and knowledge to help other mothers in ways that I felt were missing from my postpartum and breastfeeding experiences. I am passionate about supporting mothers during this time.
I am here to help with consultations and education before you have your baby and help and support with breastfeeding in the comfort of your home after you have your baby. I will also be offering classes for breastfeeding, pumping, weaning your baby and for moms returning to work.
