Hi, I’m Raquel…

As a Certified Lactation Counselor and Accredited Childbirth Educator, I consider it a privilege to serve and hold space for couples as they walk this new journey in their lives…without judgement, with patience, and with practical steps to help them decide what is best for their babies and themselves.

I love the Outdoors…

When I'm not helping new mothers and babies come together through breastfeeding, or teaching couples about the power of birth, I enjoy camping, traveling, and getting lost in the wildness and beaches of the U.P. and northern Michigan.

Family…

I am a boy-mom…all boys, all the time. I have 2 grown children and a surprise love child. I met my husband online before it was “the way you did it”…and we have been loving and sharing life together for 16 years. I love fitness and you will likely see me at the Y or running around Reed’s Lake. During our beautiful Michigan summers, you’ll likely find me at a music festival.
