About Me

My passion for supporting mothers began in 2012 when our first child was born. I was suddenly the only person that could soothe this tiny human, and even though my partner was ever present he was just as clueless as I was! 

I found a motherhood support group and found so much comfort and reassurance speaking with people who shared my worries, frustrations, and triumphs. Over the next two years I grew into my role of wife, mother, and nurse; but something was missing.  

I decided that I was going to be the support to others that was so beneficial to me in that first uncertain year of motherhood. I returned to college and completed my perinatal certificate, graduating with honors. I began working on the mother baby unit at Guelph General Hospital in 2014.

In the fall of 2015 we welcomed our second child and my love of supporting mothers grew. I returned to school to complete the lactation consultant program. I successfully wrote my exam with the International Lactation Consultant Association and achieved the title International Board Certified Lactation Consultant in the spring of 2017 and Lindsay Pravato, IBCLC was born! 

I have been helping parents achieve their feeding goals in the comfort of their own homes ever since.

Testimonials

“It was my goal to exclusively breastfeed my twins, with as little pumping as possible. Without Lindsay I can say with certainty I would not be exclusively breastfeeding my nearly 6 month old twins! ”
