Alyssa Schnell


Alyssa has been helping parents and babies with breastfeeding for the past 13 years.  She has been accredited as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) since 2009.  Her private practice, Sweet Pea Breastfeeding Support, provides individual lactation consultations both locally and nationwide, via phone or Skype.  She is excited to announce that early 2016 Sweet Pea Breastfeeding Support will be expanding to provide online community support as well with podcasts and webinars called Breastfeeding Outside the Box:  Nourishing and Nurturing Babies in Extraordinary Families.  Alyssa enjoys working with all mothers and babies, but she has an extra special place in her heart for helping mothers through adoption and surrogacy to breastfeed their babies.  She is the author of Breastfeeding Without Birthing:  A Breastfeeding Guide for Mothers Through Adoption, Surrogacy, and Other Special Circumstances.  Alyssa is the proud mother of three breastfed children, two by birth and one by adoption.
