Mother of two, Catrice started on this career path by helping new moms and families with lactation support in 1992. She faced very real challenges and soon learned that information and support were not readily available, and if moms “gave up” on nursing their babies, it was thought to be ok. Not many people advocated for the benefits and joys of breastfeeding. After accomplishing over 1200 hours of practical lactation support training with the University of Texas Health Science Center WIC Project in Houston, she decided to branch out and help breastfeeding moms in private homes, as well as clinical settings.
Spurred on to support as many new families as possible, she began partnering with Pediatricians and Obstetricians at several hospitals in the Houston area.
Catrice's work currently includes supporting families as a Community Educator at a local Houston hospital.
Catrice is joined by two postpartum doulas who offer day and night care for new families. Bios coming soon! In the meantime, please don't hesitate to contact us for more information.
