Beyond the Bio: Meet Rose

Lactation Consultnant

Meet Rose - our newest team member! Rose joined us after Laura and her family left the country to embark on their new adventure! 

Rose's work into the perinatal world began after the birth of her children, when she became a postpartum doula. While working with families during the postpartum period she saw need for support for families who choose to breastfeed/chestfeed and decided to fill that role by becoming a Lactation Consultant. Rose is incredibly passionate about her work and family - it's the first thing you notice about her! Get to know Rose better below:
