My Story

 

I fell in love with the special relationship between moms and their babies at the beginning of my nursing career over 25 years ago. Welcoming a new life, a new light, into the world is one of the most miraculous events we can ever experience; one that deserves the utmost respect and awe.

 

Empowered and supported moms are deeply connected to providing what is right for their babies. Helping moms gain the knowledge and skills to discover and enhance that connection means the world to me. How we nourish our body, mind and spirit lays the foundation for lifelong well-being. Breastfeeding is one part of that foundation.

What is an IBCLC?

An International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) is a health care professional who specializes in the clinical management of breastfeeding. An IBCLC is certified by the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners®, Inc. under the direction of the US National Commission for Certifying Agencies. An IBCLC can work in hospitals, pediatric offices, public health clinics, and private practice. IBCLC's must recertify with continuing education hours every five years and retake the Board Exam every ten years.
