Meet our Professional Partners
Hi I am Caitlin and I am a HypnoBirthing mom, a VBAC mom and a HypnoBirthing instructor! I fell in love with calm birthing through my own HypnoBirthing course when I was pregnant with my oldest. It was a transformative experience for my life. This course helped me gain calm in every pregnancy and in my life. I use these strategies to find calm in parenting and help my children do the same. After the birth of my youngest, I was ready to pass this knowledge on to more moms. I truly believe in the power of mindfulness and the importance of being educated and ready to advocate in birth.
As a mother of three grown children, Sally recognizes the importance of supporting mothers (and that's ALL mothers) as they navigate the rewarding, yet sometimes frustrating, journey called Motherhood. Her goal as a lactation consultant is to support moms with not just knowledge and assistance with breastfeeding, but to do so with compassion, in a non-judgmental manner. She graduated from college with a Public Relations degree, actually, and
worked in that field for a few years before having children. After the birth of her second child, she decided to go back to school to become a nurse. She has been helping breastfeeding mothers in the Augusta area since 2004. In 2008 she obtained her certification as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. In 2015, she led a team of nurses at Doctors Hospital in becoming the area, only Baby-Friendly Hospital. She is a past chairperson of the CSRA Breastfeeding Coalition where she is still an active member. Sally has spoken at the Georgia Perinatal Association annual conference and, most recently, was featured in Augusta Medical Professionals magazine. In 2018 she started her private practice, Sally Wood Lactation. She offers in-home lactation consultations, hospital-grade breast pump rentals and classes. Sally knows that every mother is different, with varying goals and unique
challenges. Supporting, encouraging and EMPOWERING these mothers is Sally's passion.
