Bryna Sampey, Owner of Doula My Soul, will give postnatal mothers a FAQ for breastfeeding and lactation, as well as some myth-busting and guidance around the internet's best & worst breastfeeding advice. Lots of time for support & questions from nursing parents, too!
Bryna begam serving families in Monterey, CA in 2006. She trained with one of the most experienced and skilled lactation consultants on the Monterey Peninsula, and had 4500 hours of experience before becoming certified as an IBCLC in 2010. She's also a doula that specializes in high-risk and surgical birth, as well as complex cases.
When not working directly with clients, Bryna's passion lies in education. She is committed to sharing evidence-based scientific, technical, emotional, and social knowledge about the childbearing years to parents and professionals alike. Bryna has taught about infant reflexes and breastfeeding for the past 3 years in a variety of settings, both national and international. Locally, she offers a free weekly circle for nursing parents at Wattle Tree Place, a local parent-cafe in uptown Vancouver, WA.
Of course, babies are welcome! We’ll have cushions and bolsters available, courtesy of Juniper Tree Healing Collective, to make it comfortable to sit and you can bring blankets to lay on the floor for your babes!
