BRENDA MUNZ ~ THE GENTLE VILLAGE
Hello! I'm Brenda Munz and I am the Founder of The Gentle Village. I am also a Registered Nurse, Endorsed Midwife and Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) and a mum to two beautiful kids. My gorgeous boy is 6 years old and my independent little girl, is 3 years old going onto 13. So, as you can imagine, they keep me on my toes!
Over a year ago, I sustained a back injury. Although I knew this hurdle was temporary, it flipped my life upside down. I knew I needed a lot of physical therapy. However, every time I would stare at my calendar I was bombarded with reminders of parent life and family commitments. I kept thinking to myself “how am I ever going to get better?” Looking back, I felt my rehabilitation could have been a lot less stressful and my recovery could have been quicker, had I had the services I needed provided to me, in the comfort of my home.
This is why The Gentle Village was born. There are so many expectant and new parents, especially mothers, who have their own challenges. The ability to access health care, education and support is limited to parents, due to their children's commitments. This is why The Gentle Village focuses on providing the much needed maternity services, lactation support and antenatal classes to mothers, fathers, parents-to-be and families, all in the comfort of their home!
We are here to be accessible to your needs and to support you and your family to feel confident, healthier and stronger, in all aspects of your parenting journey.
