My true joy in life is my family! My passion in life is health and wellness! Through years of searching for the best alternatives for myself and my family, as well as formal education, I am able to bring the best, supportive care to those I work with. Whether you are having a baby or learning to breastfeeding, I will support you along the way.
As a Doula and Lactation Consultant, I bring a holistic approach to those I work with, offering families physical, emotional and educational support at this very beautiful and transformational time. My passion is working with moms experiencing anxiety during the prenatal period and anxiety/depression in the postpartum period. My philosophy of care is to meet each woman exactly where they are and to support your vision of motherhood; I do this through education and support. Birth Doula support begins a few months before your new arrival and continues until just after your baby is born. Postpartum Doula care consists of education and support for you and your family and in your new role as a mother.
As a Lactation Consultant I support women through education and assistance with breastfeeding. I also work with local pediatrician and obstetrician offices to offer breastfeeding education and support services, as well as weigh in clinics. My support is offered virtually and in person.
As a certified aromatherapist, I offer individual consultations and products suitable for you. I have a deep love and appreciation for plants and the gifts that they bring and find joy in sharing this with others. I offer workshops on the safety and education of essential oils and also offer "Make and Take" Classes and workshops.
I love blogging, reading and spending time outdoors.
My love of movement and dance brought me to Yoga Teacher Training and I offer classes in the greater Portland Maine area and continue to offer them online through the Yoga with Suzanne community as well as virtually through Teachable.
