Emilia has been working with breastfeeding families since 2008. She believes that breastfeeding embodies both the normal and miraculous in life. Given the opportunity, a woman can begin her life as a mother with confidence in her body, a belief in the power of her intuition, and the knowledge that with adequate information, she can make the best choices for her child. In addition to being a lactation consultant, Emilia is also a midwife with Rosehip Midwifery. Her work as a midwife allows Emilia to work closely with women throughout the childbearing year and to be present for the first moments when mom and baby meet and the breastfeeding relationship begins.
