Change. It happens - and there are many changes happening here at Mamas & Milk!
After losing our office space on Pomerado Road due to a remodel, I have spent the summer looking for the next best place to offer our services. We have loved being in Poway for the past three years. It has been a genuine pleasure serving the community here.
Breastfeeding Support Group - Making the decision to take our breastfeeding support group on a summer hiatus was a difficult one. I have been running the group consecutively for 8 years! I have met so many tremendous,...Read more
Weekday Yoga is Back!
Last month we found out that our Babies R Us location was closing. That meant no more Wednesday Night Yoga, and the notice they gave us was pretty sudden! After searching all over for the right space for us, we found RISE Prime Wellness in Carmel Valley. It is in a sweet little spot, upstairs with a beautiful view. And it is in a space meant for yoga.

These consults will include a suck assessment, pre and post feeding weights, and a personalized...Read more

(At least that is what I am telling myself today - if I had written this post a few days ago I think it would be a much different tone. Yikes!) To mentally prepare myself, I sit in stillness, come back to my breath, and think of what helps me move through a given moment instead of...Read more
Happy New Year! I have had a busy year so far. I have been traveling and playing and napping. Because what could be better than snuggling with my sweet new rainbow squishy niece?!?
2015 was a year of healing for me. I have spent more time alone, more time away, and while I fought off the pangs of guilt along the way, I am a much better person for it. I just took two weeks off and I can't wait to get back to work! I have filled myself up and I am ready to help fill others (more...Read more
