We started Lumos because we believe that families are stronger when they are able to navigate their own experiences and story.
We believe the seeds of social change are planted when families are able to empower themselves and feel supported in the process of growing their family.
Families who choose Lumos know they will be more grounded and confident as parents when they are surrounded by support, information, and community.

Ashley Hartman Annis

About the Lumos Network
Lumos works alongside area professionals to offer more support and/or backup to the Lumos client experience.
We trust and tremendously adore these amazing folk.
Adria has been practicing as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant in Madison since 2006. “I cannot recommend her highly enough” is a common refrain amongst area breastfeeding families, and Lumos clients absolutely rave.
Formerly a midwife, Anya has been photographing families, newborns, and births for the past 10yrs. She is a very chill presence at births, and a supportive and knowledgeable presence at newborn shoots. Plus she’s wicked funny.
Emily has a particular interest in pregnancy, postpartum, and other parenting transitions. She has a deep intuitive nature and is incredibly easy to talk to. Alli says she’s one of the best listeners she’s ever met. And girlfriend’s got fantastic style.
