Hi, I'm Gabriela!
As a registered nurse clinician, International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) and DONA International certified birth doula, I have the advantage of seeing pregnancy, birth, and breastfeeding from many different perspectives.
Just as every birth is unique, every breastfeeding journey is unique. I integrate my knowledge as a nurse, a doula and a lactation consultant (IBCLC) to provide you with evidence-based information, individualized recommendations, as well as skilled support based on advanced training and professional experience, all while promoting a holistic, non-judgmental environment where your choices and parents’ wisdom are always valued.
“Gabriela is truly amazing! From our very first meeting, Gabriela was warm, knowledgeable, and supportive. Her service packages were very reasonable and gave a nice degree of flexibility. She was always very available to answer our questions during the pregnancy and post-partum period.
She is incredibly supportive and is able to provide insight and advice in a very positive and nonjudgmental way.
All together, I really trusted Gabriela and would very highly recommend her!”
“When I first reached out to Gabriela, I had just given birth and was not expecting breastfeeding to be so challenging. I had a second degree tear so sitting was uncomfortable. On top of this, the baby seemed like he did not want to latch, my nipples were sore, and I was nervous my baby wasn’t getting enough to eat.
When I brought these concerns up with the hospital, I was told general advice; to start pumping. I was devastated since I had hoped to exclusively breastfeed.
My birth doula shared with me Gabriela’s information. The next day, Gabriela met with me virtually and we outlined my breastfeeding goals. We found an optimal position to aid my recovery and worked on baby’s latch. From then on, breastfeeding has been going extremely well. I ended up booking a follow-up appointment, included in her offering, to ask any follow-up questions. During this call, Gabriela provided tongue exercises to aid in his latch.
Gabriela is extremely professional, warm, compassionate, and easy-going. I feel very grateful to have had her help during these early weeks of breastfeeding.”

“Gabriela is extremely professional, knowledgeable and approachable. We’ve been very lucky to work with her as her insights have helped us through multiple issues during our breastfeeding journey, especially early on. We wish we would have contacted Gabriela immediately after birth while still in hospital as we are certain it would have been very helpful. Thank you for all your help, patience and responsiveness!”
