No two families are the same, and each baby is different; for this reason your consultation will be personalized to fulfill your specific needs and goals. Whether you have preconceived ideas related to breastfeeding, or a previous unpleasant feeding journey, I will work closely with you to help overcome those challenges and reach your desired feeding goals. My purpose is to create an overall positive feeding experience by creating a safe, comfortable, and nonjudgmental environment for you and your infant.
My love for lactation started in 2018 when I personally went through breastfeeding challenges with my child. I struggled through 6 weeks of breastfeeding issues, my baby also had a lip tie and tongue tie, which was a huge learning curve on how to navigate as a first time mom. I discovered a lactation consultant that changed my life and saved my breastfeeding journey, thats when I knew I had to be a Lactation Consultant. I obtained my International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) credential from The University of California San Diego. I have my Bachelors of Science in Nursing and have experience working as a Postpartum RN (Registered Nurse) on the Mother Baby Unit and a Baby Nurse on Labor and Delivery.
I'm contracted through The Lactation Network which gives you SIX FREE lactation visits including prenatal, postpartum, and virtual for most PPO plans. If your insurance company does not work with the lactation network, you will be provided with a super bill for you to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.
