I first became interested in supporting breastfeeding mothers after receiving wonderful support when I was a new mother. What began as a way to “pay it forward” grew into a passion and a calling. I have been helping new mothers breastfeed their babies since 2004 and became an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) in 2010. I have worked with mothers at all stages of breastfeeding, from the delivery room through toddlerhood and beyond. In the hospital setting I have worked with premature babies in the NICU as well as with healthy full-term babies who just need a little extra support to breastfeed well. I truly love supporting mothers as they learn the art of breastfeeding, and particularly enjoy watching moms develop the confidence that they can breastfeed their babies!
