NICE TO MEET YOU

MY STORY

Hi! I’m Catherine, and I’m so glad you’re here.

In 2018, I gave birth for the first time and found myself holding a tiny baby and being responsible for his tiny life. I had read many books during my pregnancy, about birth, infant care and breastfeeding, and still, I felt unprepared. So I googled, I asked questions, I received tips & tricks from friends and family, and instead of feeling more in control, I felt overwhelmed.

Breastfeeding wasn’t easy – it’s natural, and I knew I wanted to breastfeed – but I had to reach out for help several times those first few weeks. And then eventually it clicked, we figured it out, and all of  a sudden, my whole experience changed. Breastfeeding helped me gain so much confidence in my abilities as a parent, because I learned to trust my instincts, to read my baby, and to get to know him. Breastfeeding helped me find my parenting rhythm.

In 2019, I went back to school to begin my journey towards becoming a certified Lactation Consultant. I am a Certified Lactation Counsellor (CBI), as well as a student lactation consultant. Currently, I have finished all clinical hours required for my training, and am sitting for the IBCLC exam in the Fall of 2022.
