Lactation Cookies (main part of diet now)

I (Michele) am not pregnant. I am not lactating. However, I’m eating the lactation cookies I made for my clients like it’s my only food group. A husband of one of our clients asked “is it ok if I eat these?” I had only brought them 5 cookies. I responded “honey, if I’m not leaking on myself with how many I’ve eaten this week you’ll be fine.” ON THE OTHER HAND! Our clients LOVE them! Here’s my favorite recipe I’ve found so far.


Madela, the breastpump people took the CDC stats and made a lovely infographic. Check it out!

Naima working her magic

Here’s Naima supporting a beautiful mom in the middle of labor this summer. We have had a busy summer and were privileged to welcome a handful of sweet babies to many strong, loving, gorgeous families. We’re looking forward to a wonderful group of families for our upcoming winter.


Watch this momma dance her way through a contraction with the help of her doula, Nikia. See what upright labor looks like? Much more fun than on your back in a hospital bed!
