Olympia Lactation

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

Working at a hospital as a lactation consultant, Carrie realized that many families go home without proper breastfeeding support due to the short nature of their stay.

New parents are discharged from the hospital sleep-deprived, overwhelmed with information, and often lacking knowledge of where to seek out lactation assistance.

Providing a personalized outpatient lactation service is something Carrie feels is crucial to breastfeeding success. She is so grateful to have other knowledgeable providers on her team who understand how important ongoing lactation support is!

The focus of Olympia Lactation is to provide client-centered care based on each family as they grow and expand. Knowing every lactation journey is unique, we support you and take the time to provide personalized care. We have 3 IBCLCs to be sure that we are providing thorough, thoughtful, and reasonable plans for every family.  Our focus is on quality care and we hope you feel that when you schedule with us.

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

With their combined yoga and meditation experiences and with deep roots in the Olympia community, husband-and-wife team, Vajra Romano and Christina Lagdameo, have established True Self Yoga with the mission to bring out your highest good.
