I am an international board-certified lactation consultant offering personalized, evidence-based lactation services.
Reasons to see a lactation consultant, are/but not limited to:
My love for lactation began long before having children. I have always been very passionate about breastfeeding, knowing it is the optimal nutrition for babies. When I got pregnant there was never a question of if I was going to breastfeed, it was I am going to breastfeed. There may have been multiple questions of…..are you sure there are 2 babies in there!? Ha. My twin girls were born 7 weeks early, it was heartbreaking to not be able to take my babies home with me, as they were in the NICU. There was one thing I could definitely leave for them at all times though, and that was my milk. Human milk can be and is LIFE saving for infants, especially those born prematurely. I went on to breastfeed my sweet girls until age 4, but not without some challenges along the way. Breastfeeding is like any other learned skill; learning to walk, talk, ride a bike. It is a learning process for both mom and baby, and together (and perhaps with some extra needed support) it can be accomplished!
