I am a mom, and I loved breastfeeding my children, despite the difficulties I experienced. Being a mom is a tough job, I don’t want parents to feel alone or lost in the process.
My clients would tell people I am passionate and caring, I am a good listener and problem solver. I help parents meet their goals and feel good about it. I have helped families who were struggling with breastfeeding, I have helped parents who just needed a little encouragement to know that the effort to break through their challenges is worth it.
I love seeing families happy. I love seeing families succeed. Whether their goals are to breastfeed their babies for weeks, months, or years, I get really excited to see moms get into a space where they feel good and feel like they tackled the task at hand.
I love my family, and it really ties into my professional life as well. I have over eleven years of breastfeeding my children under my belt. We’ve dealt with challenges from a bad latch and oversupply to thrush and food allergies. I’ve breastfed while pregnant and I have gently encouraged my children to wean when they were ready.
I’ve been helping parents breastfeed their babies in a volunteer capacity for more than a decade, six years ago I turned my passion for breastfeeding moms into a professional capacity, and have become an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant.
I connect with parents, and I encourage parents. I can help with any situation and we can help the breastfeeding parent and their baby be comfortable with their breastfeeding relationship. I want to get to know the whole picture of the pair. Providing breastfeeding support is different for every situation and it is best done when I have a chance to get to know the families I am working with. I also feel that when you are looking for a lactation consultant, there needs to be a connection. So I urge you to read about me, read my blogs, check out my twitter stream and Facebook page. Get to know me, so you can decide if we would make a good team.
