IBCLC Lactation Consultant Services

How can I help you?

As an IBCLC, I am well educated in lactation and infant feeding. I have been specifically trained on how to help you. An IBCLC is the gold standard in lactation support. Our education includes college health science courses, lactation specific education hours, clinical hours and a board certifying exam.

My job is to assist you in meeting your breastfeeding goals by helping you with challenges and providing a step-by-step plan on how to work through them.
