Rosemary is an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant and a Certified Postpartum Doula. Her love for working with babies, birth and breastfeeding began in childhood – being raised by her natural childbirth and breastfeeding advocate of a mother, and helping to care for her younger siblings. When a new parent herself, Rosemary was struck by how much can be done to make the breastfeeding and postpartum experience more enjoyable with a little (or a lot) of help from those gathered around a newly formed family.
Rosemary has worked with new families for many years as a photographer, helping families capture and memorialize the precious and fleeting moments of childhood. Rosemary has a bachelors degree in fine art photography from San Francisco State and lactation specific education at Birthingway College of Midwifery.
Rosemary works part-time in a hospital system as a lactation consultant, giving her the opportunity to regularly support babies (at their parents) with additional health challenges or stays in the NICU.
She is our IBCLC at Sellwood Medical Pediatrics two days a week. In this role she is in-network with MODA and Blue Cross, Blue Shield. For direct insurance billing these visits must take place at one of the Sellwood Medical Clinics.
In her free time she enjoys spending time outdoors with her wife and son, gardening, traveling, cooking, reading, watching movies, singing and having fun.
