Sheridan Ross IBCLC
Lactation Consultant 

There is nothing more rewarding for me than being with and supporting new families. Being a valuable part of helping with new life is an amazing type of gratification. I see women literally transform when things begin to work in the way they want and hoped. I love what I do. I love following my passion: supporting the mother, empowering her, encouraging her, validating her.  I’ve worked with my mentor and 20-year industry veteran, Sheila Janakos, at Healthy Horizon’s Breastfeeding Center in Burlingame, where I provided counseling, education, and support to moms at every stage. I’ve also worked in the Family Birth Center at Mills-Peninsula Hospital, have regularly taught breastfeeding classes, and assisted with support groups. Additionally, I’ve worked as a labor doula, a massage therapist with a focus on prenatal massage, and am a certified infant massage instructor. I also see patients at Bay Area Fertility & Pregnancy Specialists and Pediatrics in Redwood City.

Rosemary Hintz, MA, LMFT 
Individual, Group and Family Counselor 

The challenges facing women and their families today are overwhelming. Fertility, pregnancy and new parenting test us both physically and emotionally. Early intervention and support can help women cope with feelings of hopelessness, anxiety, sadness, anger and fear. Counseling can also support healthy relationships and positive parenting. Rosemary is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT) and have provided counseling services since 2004. I studied psychology at Stanford University and received my MA in Clinical Psychology from Notre Dame de Namur University. I offer individual, family and group counseling to those experiencing mood disorders such as depression and anxiety or stress related to fertility, pregnancy and parenting.
