Adria is a Marriage and Family Therapist and International Board Certified Lactation Consultant in the Madison (WI) Area. She supports parents as their children grow. Her expertise is with families (mothers, fathers, couples, grandparents) during the first year of parenting. She focuses on how people change as they become parents — and how they continue to take on new roles as their children grow up, launch, and become parents themselves.

She was a doula from 1991-1996, a La Leche League Leader (peer breastfeeding support) from 1995-2013, an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant since 2006, and weekly parent peer support group facilitator since 2010.

Patricia Smith is an Occupational Therapist and Lactation Consultant who specializes in working with infants and children, children with special needs, and adults with pain issues. She uses a combination of Craniosacral therapy, Visceral manipulation, Lymphatic drainage, and special lymphatic work that assists with improving circulation to the brain. Her knowledge as an OTR gives her perspective on sensory motor and neurological issues. She believes that a combination of listening to the body's cues and hands-on techniques can promote natural healing.

 

Patricia uses these skills to assist mothers and babies with nursing challenges, babies with torticollis and head-shape issues (plagiocephaly), as well as other alignment and neurodevelopment concerns. She helps children and adults with pain, headaches, ear infections, and other traumas. She assists mothers prenatally and postnatal to optimize the birth.
