Hello, I'm Maria Romeu. I'm from Spain where I used to work as a Dietitian and Nutritionist for the Regional Welfare Ministry and as an associated lecturer at the University of Alicante (Spain) teaching at the Nutrition and Dietetics Degree.
I studied my Bachelor's Degree in Human Nutrition and Dietetics (University of Alicante) and moved to the UK, where thanks to an European Aitana Grant, I did research into Micronutrients at the Norwich Research Park. After this period, I moved back to Spain where I studied my Masters' Degree (MSc) in Nutrition and Metabolism and I specialized in Clinical Nutrition (University of Barcelona).
It was a few years ago when I decided to take a break in my professional career and moved to Canada, where I also became a new mom.
It was thanks to this amazing journey where I was lucky to discover the Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) profession, so unknown in my own country.
After the struggles of my own breastfeeding journey and what I learned from my own experience, I decided to help other families and change paths..EXPANDING and detouring my professional career in the Nutrition field.
I have been specifically trained in Lactation & Breast feeding, working with many families in different clinical settings. I am Graduated in Lactation Medicine at the International Breastfeeding Center where I also completed part of my Residency program.
I love experiencing the huge positive impact that supporting lactation can have in families lives. Being part of their journey is the best reward!
When it comes to parenting, there's no wrong answer!
That's why I will hold your hand and guide you to meet your goals if you choose different ways to feed your baby.
I will also guide you to start your baby on REAL solid foods thanks to my knowledge in Nutrition and Dietetics, and keep breastfeeding while exploring different textures!
If you need me, I can give you the BESTfeeding support!
- Maria Romeu.
