Rebeca F.

Lactation Consultant (IBCLC)
I believe in every individual’s right to informed consent through access to accurate information and education about options in our healthcare, including birth and infant feeding. I have been providing education and support to families in Northern New Jersey and NYC for 13 years, as a private practice provider, as the Breastfeeding Coordinator for WIC of Hudson County, and as a former Trustee on the NJ Breastfeeding Coalition. I breastfed my own daughter for two and a half years after a very challenging first three months. During our nursing experience, I learned a lot about the importance of honoring each nursing parent’s path and about the great deal of pressure and stress parents experience in our society, where there is very little support for families. I have trained women’s healthcare professionals in the hospital setting, WIC programs, Nurse Family Partnership, and Community Doula programs. I have provided education and support to hundreds of expectant families and lactating parents and have developed and taught childbirth preparation and wellness programs for corporate organizations like the Discovery Group.

Lisa T.

Childbirth Educator Birth Doula
I came to birth work on the other side of giving birth to my two babies in 2005 and 2008. Along that journey, my eyes were opened to a few things: 1) how beautiful, normal, and transformative the process of birth is but 2) how too many women and couples have a negative or, worse, traumatic experience in giving birth due to the way our U.S. maternal health care system operates. On the other side of being fortunate enough to have become well-equipped to navigate this environment and therefore having positively transformative experiences with both of my babies' births, I "caught the birth bug" and wanted to be an instrument of encouragement and advocacy for women and families toward amazing, positive birth experiences, and I've been joyfully doing birth work ever since 2010. One area of particular passion I have in my teaching is placing specific emphasis on helping couples to deepen and enrich their relationships in pregnancy to be strategically positioned in a healthy way for the challenges and stresses having a baby can put on a marriage/committed relationship.

Sharon K.

Videographer Photographer
I’m Sharon, a wife, mom, daughter, friend, newborn filmmaker and quintessential storyteller. I have always been passionate about living life, chasing dreams, and enjoying the journey of it all. In 2017, I left my corporate 9 to 5 to chase my dream—launching my own production company, Lovelight Pictures. ​Thank God for my husband, my numero-uno supporter, who essentially threatened me, that if I didn’t follow my dreams, he would stop talking to me. Well, needless to say, I took a leap of faith. Little did I know, I also found out I was having my very own baby a.k.a little dumpling. The greatest days in my life was the day I had my newborn. When I see my baby girl, I see a miracle. She melts my heart when she falls asleep in my arms or when she flashes her radiant smile. I love hearing her coo and listening to her raucous laughs—matter of fact, this has become the inspiration for our newborn services—coo, gurgle and babble. As I tried to capture these newborn memories for myself, my “eureka” moment occurred. Why not preserve similar newborn and family memories for other moms and dads? And that’s how I gave birth to Little Dumpling Films! I want to help families preserve their baby's moments that they can cherish forever—because the one thing you don’t get back is time.
