Hi there. I'm a registered dietitian and lactation consultant based in Paarl, South Africa. This is Bump to Babe, my baby, and I'm glad you're here 🙂

About Caréne Joubert


I graduated from the University of Pretoria in 2013, where I received my Dietetics degree. I then started working in the government sector, where I quickly realised that I have a passion for infant feeding. I furthered my studies and completed the South African Lactation Consultant Course in 2020.

Food is Fundamental

"We are what we eat" - yes this might be an over-used cliché, but it is even more true today than it was before. We have only scratched the surface on the importance of good nutrition, especially during the first 1000 days of life. I just love food! The care and skill it takes to prepare, the way it makes us come together, the way it makes us feel and the way it makes us all unique. Food can be so powerful if we put some thought into it.

Go Green

Speaking of power...we have it! The power to save our planet and the lives on it. Research shows that optimal breastfeeding could save over 820 000 children under 5 years of age each year. To me, that is reason enough to promote breastfeeding, but it is the better choice for our environment as well. We can minimise plastic pollution, health care costs and save precious water. You can guess where I am going with this..."With great power comes great responsibility" - Uncle Ben; Spiderman. Here at Bump to Babe, we are taking on the responsibility to promote and support better infant feeding practices, through healthy and sustainable guidance and products.
