Shahrzad (Shaz) Tayebi IBCLC, CST
I am a proud mother of 2 amazing kids, a 21 year old daughter and a 10 year old son. We live in the beautiful city of North Vancouver, BC.
I have a B.Sc in Midwifery from Iran and practiced midwifery for more than 18 years there (not a registered midwife here in Canada though). My love and passion in breastfeeding led me to study human lactation and breastfeeding challenges and become an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant in 2013. I teach the Breastfeeding Course for Healthcare Providers at Douglas College.
With the birth of my son, who has Down Syndrome, I researched a lot on how I could possibly help him with the challenges he’ll have and I came across Craniosacral Therapy a lot. No one knew about it in Iran, so when I came to Canada when he was 2, I started him with treatments. It helped him a lot. I quickly realized that this is the thing he needs, so I studied it at Langara College and in 2014 became a Craniosacral Therapist myself, to help him with the different challenges that he will have in different stages of his life. It has been life changing for us. This is one of the many blessings he has brought to my life, because not only am I treating him, but now I am helping other people as well.
