Inspired to counsel, educate and empower new and expectant parents, BabySavvy Co. Founder Madeleine A. Maguire launched her San Francisco-based, private coaching and postpartum doula practice in 2014. She brings more than 15 years of experience serving families with infants and young children. She is an aspiring board-certified lactation consultant, and began her lactation studies with UCSD in early 2015.
Prior to completing her training in perinatal health, coaching, and lactation, Madeleine worked in PR and public policy for big name companies in the tech, health care, and energy sectors. She left the corporate world well-informed, with an insider's take on corporate culture, its demands on new parents, and the obstacles parents face in trying to balance work, personal identity, marriage, and baby.
Madeleine is a maternity and baby product enthusiast, community builder, and frequent conference and workshop attendee. BabySavvy Co. is dedicated to delivering the latest research, tips, trends and products to our clients.
To date, she has supported more than 175 families in San Francisco, Marin, Silicon Valley, and the Greater Seattle Area.
In her spare time, Madeleine enjoys practicing yoga, running, exploring San Francisco, and traveling. She graduated from Santa Clara University with a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Communication.
