Congrats on taking your first step towards thriving!
Hi, I’m Rebecca — International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), Certified Nutrition Consultant (CNC), Certified GAPS™ (Gut and Psychology Syndrome) Practitioner, Sleep Consultant and founder of Mama Thrive™.
But mostly, I'm just Mom!
At least that's what I'm referred to most often throughout my day. I have birthed and breastfed 5 little ones of my own and know that this special time can not only be incredibly amazing, but also very challenging at times which is why I hope I can make your journey and transition into motherhood a little easier. After all, there's nothing wrong with a little extra help :)
I’m currently not accepting any new clients until Fall 2019.
GAPS™ Family Consultations
Do you or someone in your family struggle with stubborn health issues that conventional medicine has been unable to help? Have you heard of the GAPS™ Nutritional Protocol but aren’t quite sure where to start, don’t know if it will help, or you’re looking for support and a plan of care? I offer one-on-one guidance as a Certified GAPS™ Practitioner using an integrative approach to help better support your (or your family’s) unique health and wellness needs.
As a Certified Nutrition Consultant I specialize in providing practical and individualized solutions to nutritional challenges or concerns from the stages of preconception and pregnancy through postpartum, introducing solids, childhood, and beyond. Having trouble getting pregnant? Does your current eating plan best support your baby during pregnancy or breastfeeding? Do you or you little one suffer from eczema, allergies, or food sensitivities? Are you struggling with a picky eater?
Are you a nursing mama struggling with a breastfeeding issue such as latching and sore nipples, going back to work, introducing solid foods, weaning, plugged ducts, bottle refusal, or sensitivities in your breastfed baby? As an experienced International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), these are issues I regularly work with. Luckily not every concern requires physical assistance. Many times just being able to sift through the information out there in order to come up with a personalized plan to your specific situation is all you need.
Holistic Sleep Consultations
Are you tired as a mother? Hehe ;) I totally hear you and I also totally get it. But, what if I told you that the reality is sleep for both you and your little one(s) could be so much better. It’s true! Sleep is a natural process — just as much as eating and breathing are — and I help support my clients by using different sleep methodologies in order to help guide them with their own unique situation. This is not a one-size-fits-all approach, but rather a holistic solution to support the natural sleep rhythm.
