Breast-feeding is natural, but that doesn't mean it's easy or automatic. In this chat, I help new mothers and moms facing questions. What are the best ways to hold a baby for feeding? How often should baby nurse? How can mother ensure that baby latches on well? What can mom eat and drink to improve her milk? What can she do when baby is colicky and irritable, and to improve sleep? I have worked with hundreds of mothers, and I'm a patient and loving counselor. Let me help you make the most of this special time.
I have a combined study and work experience in agriculture and mother/child health. After completing my undergraduate degree in Economics and Development and certificate in Agriculture, I have worked with International Medical Corps as a District Supervisor, training mother care groups about breast feeding, family planning, essential hygiene, and early child nutrition. My focus has been on healthy behaviors and education. I have also worked for World Vision as an agricultural field agent, working with communities to improve farming practices.
In early childhood, mother's health is closely linked to baby's health, in terms not only of immunity, nutrition and sleep, but also psychological and spiritual health. I am a Christian woman, and believe that God gives women special strength as mothers.
