My name is Desiree Roddy and I am working to complete my education as a doula and lactation consultant. I am working to serve families in the Northern New York area. My goal is to empower and support families to make educated choices in regards to their prenatal experience, labor/delivery, and postpartum period.
My hope is to help women and families from all backgrounds, though, I have special interest in VBAC (Vaginal Birth After Cesarian) families, cesarean support, breastfeeding support, and educating growing families.
My first birth was a cesarean section in 2013, followed by a difficult and trying recovery. My second birth was a VBAC in 2015, in which I used a doula for birth support. The support that my doula provided fueled my passion to help families on their journey to "sprout" new life! I have three years of combined breastfeeding experience that includes working through a tongue and lip tie, mastitis, thrush, clogged ducts, milk blisters, full time working and pumping, tandem nursing, and weaning.
Are you interested in learning more about how a doula could help nurture your growing family? Would you like to set up a consultation to chat face to face?
