Breastfeeding/Pumping Education

If you have questions about latch, milk supply, pumping or any other topic related to feeding your breastmilk from the breast, or with a bottle, cup, syringe or Supplemental Nursing System, then a one-on-one video-call with a postpartum doula will help you feel knowledgeable and reassured feeding your baby.

What Families Have to Say...

 

 

"In a time, both before and after giving birth, when we were inundated with information that was sometimes conflicting, Javi was there with evidence-based information and resources to direct us to the information we needed.

After giving birth, the virtual support through video was so convenient with a newborn, especially given the stressful and confusing pandemic time.

She was, and still is, super accessible, just a message, text or call, away at any time of the day. She is passionate about self-advocating and she is inclusive of all family situations. Javi did an amazing job of ensuring that we were informed and reassured, her service felt tailor-fit to us and our personal situation"

-M, First-time mother.

Meet the Instructor

Hi! Im so glad you made it here!

I'm Javiera Aviles-Saez or just Javi! I'm the face behind Mother&Sol, a full-spectrum doula and childbirth educator, but first and foremost I am mother to a 2.5 year old, Sol Tobias.

He is the sun of my life and the reason I became a birth worker.

I believe all parents should feel informed, supported and empowered during the birth of their baby and their transition into parenthood. As a doula, I have training in all things pregnancy, birth, babies and evidence-based education, and I'm proud to provide families in Sarnia with accessible doula care, inclusive services and unconditional support of their choices.
