Hi, I’m Mishka and I help families get off to the best start possible!
I am a certified Childbirth Educator and an accredited Breastfeeding Counselor with Breastfeeding USA. I serve and love working with expecting and new families in Fredericksburg VA, helping them to gain clarity and confidence in their own ability to birth and parent.
I adore birth and babies, but the real reason I do this work is because I love to support new mothers. There is no time in life more precious and wonderful than the childbearing year. When a woman is well supported, she and her baby thrive. I see my job as making sure she knows what to expect and where to turn for help if complications, or problems arise, so that she can enter this phase of life confident and ready to embrace motherhood.
I have given birth three times myself and I know how much (often conflicting) information there is to sift through. I have also experienced the common challenges that go along with birth and life with a newborn. I get it!! I’ve been immersed in the world of birth and babies since 2006 and I’ve done all the hard work of sorting through the mountain of information out there. I am a “big picture” kind’a girl and everything that I cover in class, or present to you, is with the intention that you have the very best start possible!
I would love to help you find your confidence and support you as you become the strong and capable mother you were born to be!
