I am a Brazilian feeding specialist who left her home country +6 years ago to look for new adventures.
I graduated more than a decade ago and certified as a lactation consultant after moving overseas.
I am currently based in Northern Ireland - UK, offering consultations, both online and home care through the Emerald Isle.
I like to cook, read, do yoga, and walk (when the local weather cooperates). I also enjoy road trips - I would travel around the world by car if I could.
As an IBCLC and nutritionist, I advocate, promote and support breast milk as first food for babies.
Since I graduated, I experienced different clinical settings that help me to have a wider view when practicing. I've worked in hospitals, community health centres and private clinics. Paediatrics and mental health are the areas I specialize in as nutritionist.
From preemies to teenagers, I have been helping families to feed their children and overcoming several challenging situations related to milk and food intake.
Once certified as IBCLC I started offering private breastfeeding consultations and keep myself update attending to specific conferences and courses. I am also member of the Association of Lactation Consultants in Ireland.
