Timor Lifschitz

My name is Timor (“Tea-more” – It’s Hebrew) and I am a registered nurse/midwife and lactation consultant. I wanted to be a nurse since I was 3 years old, and when I met my husband in high school after he had just completed his basic paramedic course I decided to go into nursing, and specifically, I wanted to be a midwife. During my degree I assisted at DISA Clinic where I learnt about female sexuality and reproductive health. I received 6 achievement awards at the end of my degree, and did my community and contract year at Joburg Gen (Charlotte Maxeke) Hospital where I spent my time in different areas of the Gynae and Obstetric wards. After I completed that, I was accepted for a midwife position at Genesis Maternity Clinic where I learnt just how beautiful and intimate birth could (and SHOULD) really be like, and how we should honour and protect that space. I want to share what I have learnt with other parents, and to assist them to work with their children rather than fight against them – from birth to infant sleep and introduction to solids, etc. I also passed my SACLC exam with distinction. I am now a qualified lactation consultant and can assist you in your breastfeeding journey.
