Hi! I'm Cindy-a queer/pan/bi/omni identified cisgender polyamorous female who is an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), Registered Lactation Consultant (RLC), Certified Professional Doula Trainer (CPDT), Certified Doula(CD), and Certified Childbirth Educator (CBE). Birth, Lactation, EDI, theater and Steampunk are my absolute passions. I am *such* a birth/lactation geek. I have been providing birth, lactation/chestfeeding/breastfeeding/body-feeding care to hundreds of families for well over a decade, both as a volunteer peer counselor, and through my business, Tree of Life Birth & Lactation Services. I gratefully work with folx of ALL gender and sexual identities, and ALL relationship structures. I strive to meet you where you are and help you meet your goals. I absolutely love this work. I am committed to and have extensive background in Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI/DEI), including many continuing education credits through organizations such as The Adaway Group, Evidence Based Birth, Doula Trainings International, Maia Midwifery, and Paperless Private Lactation. I am the EDI Department Coordinator for La Leche League(LLL) of the Garden State, at the national level on the LLL USA EDI Committee, and have been an Equity Advocate for LLL in two states. I'm also a Trustee of a charter school where I'm on their EDI Committee, and the former EDI Coordinator for a local Steampunk Community. Some of my offerings include: Prenatal Lactation Classes, Lactation Consultations, Pumping/Back To Work Consultations, Evidence Based Birth Childbirth Classes, Bradley Method Childbirth Classes, ...and more! I also train full-spectrum, birth, and postpartum doulas for Doula Trainings International, I do continuing education workshops for other birth and lactation professionals, and I've spoken at numerous conferences on birth and lactation, and regularly run workshops on topics of EDI. Oh, and my partner and I have a big beautiful blended family with seven children, five of whom I birthed and body-fed. There's tons more about me on my website! Please feel free to reach out.
