Welcome to A Conscious Beginning.
This space has been created by Roxanna who strives for all parents to have a healthy, happy, easy postpartum! Each person’s journey into parenthood is unique and special and should be tailored to them. Healthy individuals begin with conscious choices. Who we chose to invite to our births, what we eat, and knowing when to ask for help are all pieces to making important transitions be as smooth as possible.
The journey into parenthood is full of intense and beautiful changes. The choice to breastfeed/chestfeed is sometimes met with challenges. Being informed at the right time can make navigating this beautiful relationship more enjoyable for you and baby. As we prepare our minds and bodies for birth we should do the same in preparing for the postpartum period and breastfeeding/chestfeeding.
A Conscious Beginning offers Lactation Support services (phone call, Zoom/Facetime, office visits, and home visits), Your Supported Start to Nursing Classes, and How to Prepare for Postpartum Sex Workshops to the Greater Vancouver area including: Port Moody, Port Coquitlam, Coquitlam, Burnaby, Pitt Meadows, Maple Ridge, New Westminster, Surrey, and Langley. We welcome consultations with parents of any gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, or family structure.
I want to acknowledge that my home, and the places I offer my services, is in the fraser valley area of British Columbia, on unceded Indigenous land belonging to the Coast Salish peoples, including the territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), Stó:lō and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
