More than a year and a half after moving across Saskatchewan from Southeast Saskatchewan to the Saskatoon, SK area (Warman currently, to be exact), I have finally done it - I have changed my phone number to be local to Saskatoon, Warman, Osler, and the surrounding local calling areas. I know that changing one's cell phone number isn't always necessary in this day and age of most people having decent long distance calling plans, and I seriously considered leaving my phone number alone long-term, but recently I had someone try to contact me who did not have such a calling plan and I was finally faced with the reality that it would simply be easier and less confusing if I no longer carried a phone number that lives in a town on the other end of Saskatchewan.
Feel free to give me a call at my new phone number 639-318-1711. If you are in the Saskatoon area, there'll be no long distance charges for you :)
I am currently still working on my Breastfeeding Counselor certification. During my training, for a limited time, I am offering up to 5 hours of combined support free of charge to any woman contacting me looking for breastfeeding support. This could include any of the services listed on my breastfeeding services page.
Reading this, you might be asking yourself, "Why is Criston offering breastfeeding counselor consultation services before she is able to call herself a certified breastfeeding counselor?" and that would be a good question! If you'd like to know my answer to that question, then read on!
Hello again! It has been a while since I have been active on this website and blog, mainly because I had taken an extended maternity leave starting in 2016, AND moved twice since that maternity leave started as well!
Now, though, I'm excited to announce that we have finally landed in a new location where we will be putting down some roots! We now live in Osler, Saskatchewan, only 15 minutes from Saskatoon. Now that we are in a new location I thought I would announce that my maternity leave is wrapping up and I am accepting on call birth clients again, now for Saskatoon and the surrounding area due as early as March 2018!
I am still on my way to becoming a certified lactation counselor to provide that extra level of support to clients new to breastfeeding or with specific breastfeeding challenges, but until then, I am still planning to offer my other prenatal, birth, postpartum, and even pre-conception services!
