Hilary Baxendale has been working with families in the NYC area for over a decade. As a Childbirth Educator she leads couples prenatally in group Childbirth Education, Newborn Care and Breastfeeding Workshops in Westchester and Manhattan.
In addition to being a Childbirth Educator, Hilary is also a Certified Lactation Counselor and helps women transition to parenthood through new mom groups and home visits. She feels very honored to be able to empower new parents to welcome and care for their babies with knowledge, confidence and a good dose of humor. Highly experienced in the birth and newborn world, Hilary can help you in a supportive, non judgmental way, figure out your baby—and uncover the best way to soothe him and prepare him for better naps and nights.
Hilary’s role is to educate, provide support and companionship and nurture your new family. Unlike a family member, who may offer up unsolicited advice, Hilary offers moms evidence-based information but never judges the family’s choices or tells them how to parent.
Raised in Rhode Island, educated in Boston and married to an English charmer, Hilary currently calls Hastings-on-Hudson, New York, home with her family that includes two young sons.
