Joy MacTavish - Certified Coach

About Me

Joy MacTavish is an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) and Certified Babywearing Consultant with a background as a doula and childbirth educator - but first and foremost she's a mama. She began using elimination communication with her son around 3 weeks - as soon as breastfeeding was going well enough to focus on something else. E.C. was not only a way to use fewer diapers, it became a fun way to connect with her baby. And as a bonus she didn't have to change poopy diapers after he was around 6 months old!

Joy enjoys meeting clients where they are - both literally and figuratively - with in-home and phone consultations and coaching on almost everything baby related. Through her business, Sound Beginnings, she offers compassionate support and education to new parents on a variety of topics including lactation, babywearing, cloth diapers, elimination communication, non-coercive potty training, pumping and return to work, starting solids, and more!
