Meet MARGOT

I am working to redefine the scope of postpartum support. I bring my own personal humor and joy for family to my work. My background in early childhood development, along with my own unique birth, postpartum and toddler-raising experiences, and the over 75 families I've worked with over the last 6 years help me support a wide variety of families as they tackle the often-unplanned for aftermath of bringing baby home and raising young kids. I provide truly nonjudgemental feeding support and specialize in offering practical tips and tricks, coaching to ensure a happy, relaxed family unit, transitioning to and from work, as well as the special experience of having toddlers Because - I think we could all use a little less judgement and little more doula.

What I Love About My Work

Really, it's the simple things - those days when families feel at their wits' end about what to do and being able to offer a small suggestion that makes a world of difference. Seeing the relief on that parent's face is my great joy.

I'm Best Known For

My clients hire me for knowledge base but appreciate me for my authenticity. Feeding babies is hard. Raising children is hard. I don't sugar coat that - but help everyone find the fun in it.

Three Words that Best Describe Me

Authentic, practical, fun

My Personal Motto

Everything will be okay in the end. If it's not okay, it's not the end.
