Bio:
Marie has been working with breastfeeding mothers for over 10 years. Her background as a Midwife (not currently licensed in California) sparked her passion for helping expectant or new families with their feeding journey. Marie gained a BSc (hons) in Midwifery in the UK in 2009. In 2012 she moved to Australia where she lived and travelled for 5 years, working as a Midwife the entire time. Whilst in Australia her passion for breastfeeding became apparent so she studied alongside her work to gain her certification as a lactation consultant (IBCLC). Throughout her career Marie has served a wide variety of women in the hospital, birth centres, the home and most rewardingly in Tropical North Queensland within an indigenous community. The aboriginal families she lived and worked with led her to appreciate the lost art of community and this has since influenced her work with families every day. Now calling San Diego home she is excited to work with families here. By providing support and guidance Marie hopes she can help women to find that sense of community which is so important when on your journey as a new parent and sometimes hard to find.
