Elina Arulraj

Physical Therapist

Lactation Consultant (IBCLC)

My first profession was as a Physical Therapist however after 10 years of practicing in all disciplines including Women's Health for many of those years, I came to realize and find my true passion, Lactation Consulting. It was through my sister's struggles trying to nurse premature babies that I initially realized my love for this profession and I wanted to get certified to help as many new and seasoned Moms as I could. It wasn't until I had my own that I came to understand the real commitment it takes, the struggles you have and the desire to do your absolute best for these new little lives you are responsible for. I have been a International Board Certified Lactation Consultant since 2009 and working to empower Moms and helping babies breastfeed since 2007. Together with my husband, I am the proud Momma of exclusively breastfed twin boys and a girl.

Kellie Theo

Support Group Facilitator

Newborn/Parenting Educator

Parenting coach

As a Certified Parent Coach, I am deeply committed to supporting new parents on their journey. After the birth of my son in 2005, I felt unprepared for the challenges of new motherhood. Recovering from childbirth while managing colic, sleep deprivation, and postpartum anxiety was overwhelming. It was the support I received from my postpartum doula and therapist that helped me settle into motherhood, and inspired me to become a Postpartum Doula and Parent Coach. ​ In 2009, I received my Postpartum Doula certification through Childbirth International. Supporting families in the first twelve weeks following childbirth was a true privilege and rewarding. ​ In 2015, I began working with Boot Camp for New Moms in Irvine, California as a writer, researcher, and workshop facilitator. This award-winning, national program provides education for new parents around the country. In 2018, I was certified as a Parent Coach through Parent Coach Professionals, and I've been working in private practice since then, supporting families in the US and abroad. ​ I also hold a Bachelor of Arts from George Mason University. ​ My approach to coaching is compassionate, non-judgmental, and solutions-oriented, recognizing that each family has unique circumstances and goals. I specialize in preparing for parenthood, Positive Parenting/Discipline and co-parenting challenges.
