Carrie has been supporting breastfeeding families since 2012 and is an IBCLC since 2015. She is passionate about assisting families with meeting their breastfeeding goals.

More about Carrie

Carrie can help parents get a comfortable latch or help with the weaning process – and everything in between, including milk supply, working with premature infants, reflux, pumping questions, introducing solid foods, and more.

She has extensive knowledge and training in tethered oral tissue (tongue tie), infant structure and function, maternal gut health, and feels prepared to support cases from the simple to the complex. She collaborates with providers in the community to provide thorough and integrative care to the families she has the honor of supporting.

She has three young daughters and became passionate about breastfeeding after working through many struggles with her first child more than 10 years ago.

She is based in Olympia WA, with a remote office in Montesano, and also offers virtual appointments to anyone, anywhere. She accepts many insurance as well as offers a sliding scale fee.

Dianne’s birth work extends through many years of volunteerism while living in foreign countries.  Her knowledge in the maternal/childbirth field stems not only from her own personal experiences,

More about Dianne

(Dianne is the mother of nine children and eight grandchildren!), but in her extensive work in this field. As a passionate supporter of pregnancy and birth, through being an educator and doula, Dianne gleans both from her past as well as current training and ongoing education, to support birthing families.

Her philosophy towards birth is to help nurture confidence in the innate ability present in birth givers to bring forth their babies. While birth is definitely a physiological experience, it also holds an aspect that is much more than just physical. Birth encompasses our total person. Understanding these components within us that influence the birthing process can assist birth givers in making decisions towards a satisfying, positive and powerful experience.

On a personal note, Dianne loves being around nature, fibers, reading and learning. She is fascinated by the ‘mystery of history.’ She speaks ‘a little’ of several languages, has lived in about 14 different countries and visited more than 35!

What a magnificent studio oasis!

True Self is the best yoga studio in Olympia by far! Their variety of classes, from heated and regular, as well as their beautiful studio space, and the deeply passionate and knowledgeable owners all create a safe and supportive yoga community. - Sarah Burdette

They've created and hold space for their yogis so well that even the studio seems to have a sense of it's true self.

I've been a yogi in Olympia for about 10 years and True Self Yoga is the first studio that meets all of my yoga needs, and then some. When you visit True Self, you don't walk straight into a yoga room like most studios. - Camy Naasz

The heated room boasts a special heating system that you need to experience!

Beautiful space to practice with a variety of class offerings, great instructors, kombucha on tap and the latest yoga gear. Two studios: one heated and the other non-heated. Floors are always clean and they also have showers in the changing rooms, which is a must for hot yoga! - Rese Kim
