Resources & Referrals

At GoldiLacts, we believe in the power of the energetic exchange that occurs between a mother and her baby. We also believe in the energetic exchange between provider and patient. We have worked extremely hard at cultivating and nurturing relationships with specialty providers whose approach we believe align with our own philosophy which supports parents as they navigate the breastfeeding relationship – a relationship that is completely individual to each and every family we come into contact with. When we send your baby to someone, we are sending OUR BABY there. We only invite providers into our space whom we feel would provide you with the same level of care as GoldiLacts strives towards at each one of our consultations.

Childbirth Preparation & Education, Birth Coaching Services:

Bundle Birth, A Nursing Corporation

A note from Bundle Birth’s founder, Sarah Lavonne – L&D Nurse, CLEC, Birth Coach, and Childbirth Educator:

I graduated from Azusa Pacific University in 2010 with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and was immediately hired as a Labor & Delivery Nurse in a hospital in East Los Angeles. I learned  very quickly that this was my calling. Being allowed into one of the most significant moments in people’s lives was (and is) such an honor.

I learned that as a nurse, I had an impact on their birth memory.  My attitude, the education I provided and the support I gave could make or break their experience. As I grew in my skills and knowledge of labor & delivery, I passed my RNC exam for Inpatient Obstetrics, making me certified in that specialty. I also discovered a passion for breastfeeding which led me to pursue a certification as a breastfeeding educator counselor (CLEC). After getting hired at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Beverly Hills, I joined a group of elite nurses to re-vamp the hospital’s childbirth education program and pursued a certification in childbirth education (ICCE).

​My passion is to empower you by helping you discover what is important to you as well as educate you with the most up-to-date information out there. I believe you are wise, capable and worthy of having a respectful, supported and confident birth. I would love to come around you, learn about who you are and your wants/needs and bundle you with love, education and support to help you have one of the best, most life-changing days of your life.  Visit www.bundlebirth.com for more information!
