Kia Ora, my name is Emma! I am passionate about breastfeeding and really love supporting women to reach their goals. Knowing personally, what a difference the right support and informed choice can make, I decided I'd like to be a part of that. I've had 3 c sections, and just never got the help I needed to latch and feed my first daughter, so exclusively pumped and tube/finger fed, then bottles for about 4 months, before moving on to formula, but, have successfully breastfed my 2nd now for 4 years, that journey includes (asking an array of other things), nursing through my next pregnancy and tandem feeding my now 2yo as well, which has been a challenge and delight! I'm in my mid-30s. I love babywearing and enjoy being an active member of our community which includes play centre and parent help at school. Some of my hobbies include doing all things crafty and fostering animals. I live at Company Bay with my fiance and 3 amazing daughters (11yo, 4yo, and 2yo), with a bunch of fur babies too. You can contact me via my cell phone (please don't bother leaving voice mail), texting is fine too. Or email. If you'd like to chat about anything, would like to meet, or just have some questions you'd like some more information about, I'm here for you 😊
