Get to Know Me and My Philosophy
A sneak peek into who I am and why I chose to be an IBCLC
Lactation Expert + Baby Whisperer
Becoming an IBCLC was not in the "plans" until I had my first son. I experienced the immense pleasure and joy of breastfeeding while navigating one of the largest learning curves I had ever encountered...and then came the twins! Just as I was becoming comfortable with breastfeeding one...I was then thrown into learning how to breastfeed TWO. This is how I became an IBCLC. Not because I was a nurse, or worked in healthcare, but because I was a mom who had a journey and who wanted to ensure other moms could fulfill their journey.
I show up for families just like I would want someone to show up for me. I have often been called the baby whisperer for having the insane ability to bring calmness to babies during home visits!
I hope you've learned a little more about me and why being an IBCLC is one of my most absolute joys in life. I look forward to sharing with you.
In good health,
Holistic and Informative
Our primary goal as lactation consultants is to ensure the protection of milk supply and to promote breastfeeding and providing breast milk. There is no particular food or product that is recommended initially without proper evaluation of milk removal from the baby and milk supply within the mom.
In taking a holistic approach, I coach and encourage through instruction, education and allow the mom to navigate what works best. In my practice I am your guide to providing a comfortable and informed experience through education that is simple to understand.
Holistic Lactation Care always recommends moms to have a healthy diet full of whole foods and various supplements as needed to maintain good health.
As your baby grows and first foods are introduced I also guide you through how to continue the best foods necessary to keep baby growing appropriately as well as establish healthy eating habits.
