Prior to relocating to Nigeria, Tolu completed an MSc in Healthcare Management and worked with the reputable UCL (Department of Nutrition, London) as a (Band 8) Research Midwife studying breastmilk, the nutrients within and factors which affect and contribute to mothers achieving their breastfeeding goals.
Tolu is passionate about every mother's pregnancy journey and believes it should be a great experience for all women and her birthing partners. She desires to holistically support and empower all women to make informed decisions as they transition to parenthood in a relaxed and anxiety free mode.
In a bid to provide holistic care and support, Tolu has also started antenatal classes just for men, #DadsAntenatalNg which has been a great success. the importance of an inclusive and active father's input cannot be over emphasized, right from conception.
