About Me

Who Am I?

My name is Francis Schwedhelm. I am happily married to my second husband and I have 3 children of my own. Together, we have six children and one grandchild. 


I am very passionate in honoring the support of postpartum care for you and your baby’s postpartum experience. I find immense joy being present within the caregiving role as baby and mother cross the threshold of birthing into a new life experience. This experience binds the family unit in which each contributing member plays a special role in the family dynamic. 

What Is My Experience?

  • I come to you as an experienced licensed Early Childhood Educator. For 30 years, I successfully owned and operated an in-home daycare of my own. 
  • The foundation of my experience was with infants to preschool consisting of a curriculum rich in supporting emotional/social and intellectual programming. 
  • I am currently working on becoming a Certified Educator in Infant Massage, which will enhance the postpartum experience I bring to you. 
  • I breastfed my 3 children and supported nursing mothers throughout my career. 
    • Although not certified as a lactation specialist, I do attend classes and workshops on a continual basis. 
  • I’m here as a supportive resource for you in whichever form of feeding you choose to experience with your infant.

What Else Should You Consider?

I am certified in the following modalities: 

•Postpartum Doula

•Massage Therapist

•Nutritional Coach

•Pre/Postnatal Coach

•Bi-lingual in Spanish/English
