Zenana-Renee Rose, RN, BSN, IBCLC

Owner/Board Certified Lactation Consultant

Zenana has been working with childbearing families since 1998. In 1997 Zenana graduated from Humboldt State University with a Bachelors of Science in Nursing. From there she launched her 8 year career as a labor and delivery and mother-baby nurse. She very much enjoyed providing unconditional love and support to all of the families she worked with and felt incredibly honored to witness not only the birth of the new baby but also the birth of a family.

In 2002 Zenana attended the lactation educator course at Evergreen University in Kirkland, Washington. That very summer she sat for the exam and became an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. Zenana is currently practicing as a lactation consultant with Beyond Birth Lactation Services. Her goal as a lactation consultant is to provide evidence-based, unconditional support as she guides each Mom in reaching her individual breastfeeding goals.

Zenana is a member of the International Lactation Consultants Association, the Oregon/Washington Lactation Association, and La Leche League International. She lives in Southwest Portland with her husband and 20 year-old daughter. Zenana enjoys cooking, traveling and spending time with her family.

  • As the founder of Zenana Spa and Wellness Center, It is my dream that every woman and her family find our center a place where they receive the compassionate support, truthful guidance and loving community that are so valuable in life in general but especially when growing a family.
