meet your host

Hi, there! I’m Shari, the semi-crunchy, perpetually tired, socially awkward extended breastfeeding NorCal mom behind Navigating Parenthood. I’m also a lactation educator, postpartum doula, mother roaster, and infant massage instructor. I’ve been the mom who is worried she won’t be able to breastfeed, the mom with mastitis and cracked nipples, the confidant breastfeeder, the not-so-confidant breastfeeder, and the mom on little number 3 struggling to wait for her milk to increase after birth. My hope is that this summit helps you gain more info, tools and resources that you can have in your pocket should you need them so that you’re not filled with panic or anxiety during this important journey.
