About the Author

Lindsey became a Postpartum Doula after realizing her clients bonded better with each other and with their baby as she nourished new mothers to speed their healing and while teaching them specialized newborn care skills through her background as a Certified Advanced Newborn Care Specialist.

Her holistic health and nutrition background and training as a Certified Lactation Educator Counselor through UCSD allows new mothers to feel nourished and confident in their recovery as their body transitions into a new life force for their new baby.

Through Ayurveda, and also through allergy-free and diabetic cooking, Lindsey is experienced in stabilizing all conditions postpartum, knowing the cause and results of certain properties in herbs and foods and their effects on breast milk composition and quality, increasing milk production, and balancing vata dosha and the energy in the body vital to detoxing and healing immediately after birthing and in the first 8 weeks.

Lindsey later became a Birth Doula after her clients opened up to her about situations they faced in pregnancy and during labor which could have been prevented had they and their partner known how to prevent common ailments and navigate the medical environment to advocate for themselves. Lindsey’s thorough prenatal and postnatal education equips new parents to feel determined in their birth choices and parenting decisions, no matter the birthplace or parenting style.

Lindsey helps foster maximum self-determination for new and expecting parents and each of their new roles while transitioning to the journey of parenthood for their growing family. Receiving this essential support is something every family deserves.
