Rosie’s worldview has been shaped by unique experiences such as studying feminist literature at Oxford University, receiving her MSc in Social Work, and adventuring all over the world while supporting vulnerable women, children, and families from London, UK, to the Middle East, Africa, and now the US. Over the past 12 years, she’s worked in women’s refuges, rape crisis centers, children’s social services, and anti-human trafficking charities. Most recently, Rosie helped lead and run parenting and breastfeeding peer support groups in London’s Kings Cross, Lewisham, and Brockley. It was here where she had the opportunity to train as an accredited breastfeeding peer supporter, and where she also witnessed firsthand the barriers to accessing high-quality breastfeeding support.
This unique background has formed Rosie’s firm belief that breastfeeding has the power and potential to reduce socioeconomic and health disparities, heal traumas, and support maternal and infant health and wellbeing across communities, cultures, and continents.
