Welcome! I'm Gabby.

I’m a mom of two, an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant, and a baby nerd with degrees in psychology and human development. And I have a secret. 

I believe we live in a culture that discourages parents whose instincts don’t align with mainstream, Western parenting norms. We are told that if we don’t do thinks like spank or sleep train, we will be doing our children and ourselves a lifelong disservice. But here’s the secret: The research doesn’t support that.

My mission at Mom Makes Joy is to help you navigate motherhood with confidence–even when it goes against the grain.
