Laura Kent-Davidson

Drop In Location: East End

Laura has had a love for babies for as long as she can remember.  After the birth of her first, her struggles through birth trauma, breastfeeding, and overall adjustment in the postpartum period gave her a new found respect for the journey of parenthood. Surprised by her feelings of overwhelm and isolation- even though surrounded by a supportive network- she decided to do what she could in her personal and professional life to life up new parents and their babies. 

 

As a Naturopathic Doctor and International Board Certified Lactation Consultant she focusses her practise on postpartum wellness and breastfeeding support. She is passionate about empowering families, especially those who are vulnerable, underserved, or displaced.

 

She currently serves families in Toronto and online through her site Parenthood Abroad.
