Maman Cigogne is the realization of a dream. This is a career path that I had chosen long ago and it is the product of a long professional road.
My Peruvian Midwife background along with my Nursing and Lactation consultant skills are placed at your service.
As a former Undergrad Scholar from USMP, I had the opportunity to work in one of the poorest areas of LIMA- PERU. This experience allowed me to practice ancient non invasive procedures to help women to cope with pain. This unique experience enriched my life forever.
In 2009, I graduated from the Nursing program at College Maisonneuve. This allowed me to work in different specialties, but my calling was strong and I returned to the Obstetrical world once again.
In 2010 I found my professional home. One of Montreal’s busiest birthing center opened its doors to me and it was a great experience that will stay with me wherever I go.
2015 represented a huge year for me. I became a Lactation consultant while working at the hospital. Also, I started to work with Dr Macfarlane at Clinique Origyne. She became a professional mothering figure, a mentor and friend who I respect deeply.
Working at CO and the busiest birthing center allowed me to provide care in a multicultural environment. These valuable settings brought me countless opportunities to learn from different cultures, to understand their approach to pain and the diversity of their understanding to labor. This allow me to learn and grow not just as a person, but as a professional as well. I learned the value of each person and the importance of their roles as part of the working team. Also, I began to understand the specific needs of the new parents to be and help create their “New Parenting TEAM”.
As a newcomer myself, I do understand the needs of those who came to this country and have no family locally nor a guide that will facilitate access to the many services available. We are here to provide the information needed.
Pregnancy is a unique stage of life, a SENTINEL EVENT that if developed in an foreign environment could quickly became an overwhelming experience. Allow me to help you make it a wonderful experience.
I had participated with La Leche League International (LLLI) Breastfeeding Support, which I can help make more accessible to you.
2017 opened new opportunities to me!
My expertise has grown to a level 2 Lactation Consultant. Now, I give support to all Nurses & IBCLC of Montréal.
This means more knowledge and experience at your service.
Nothing will make me more happy than to ensure your breastfeeding experience becomes the one you want it to be!
I am here to help bring out the best version of you!
