Helina Teshome has been a Registered Nurse since 2005 and a Board Certified Lactation Consultant since 2011. She brings experiences from a variety of areas to this line of work, including Postpartum Care, Neonatal Intensive Care and Post Anesthesia Care. Helina became a DONA trained postpartum doula and founded Mommy's Angels Postpartum Care Services LLC in 2010 to fully pursue her passion for working with and supporting parents and their newborns. Helina originally started her company to provide postpartum care to families by providing extra support, nurturing and skilled home care. She still feels that this support is very important to families so that they can fully enjoy the changes in their family dynamics. However, over the last few years, her focus has changed to solely providing lactation consulting and teaching mothers the art of breastfeeding.
Since 2013, Helina Teshome (of Mommy’s Angels Postpartum Care Services, LLC) and Kiran Hahn (of Austin Milk Made, LLC) have joined forces to offer comprehensive, evidence-based breastfeeding care to central Texas area moms and babies. Their practice, which is housed in 411 Pediatrics, focuses on providing lactation education and consultations as well as offering hospital-grade breast pump rental services and limited retail for Austin and surrounding areas.
Helina was born and raised in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, and has been living in Austin since 1994. She enjoys traveling and spending time with her husband and three children. Prior to becoming a nurse, Helina received her Bachelor’s of Business Administration in Accounting from St. Edward’s University and worked at Dell Computers Corporation.
