About me

I am Moira McLoughlin, owner of Pregnancy to Parenthood. I am a mother of 3, an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), an antenatal educator, a baby massage instructor and a holistic sleep coach. I am here to support you on your journey from pregnancy to parenthood with a listening ear, compassion and evidence based information. I offer a variety of private consultations and classes that provide the support and information you need to make the decisions that feel right for your family.
