There is nothing like the journey of parenthood! It’s rewarding, exhausting, awe-inspiring and overwhelming all at the same time. And, as a mother of three, it is absolutely the best thing I’ve ever done. However, when it came to breastfeeding, I had no idea what I was doing and no frame of reference or hands-on support. So, while I look back with joy at having nursed all of my children, I certainly wish I knew then what I know now as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC).

Acquiring IBCLC status was a vigorous endeavor, requiring that I complete hundreds of lactation field-relevant clinical hours (mine were at Sibley Memorial Hospital, along with other outpatient settings) and pass the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners (IBLCE) exam.

In addition, I have attended numerous lectures and courses as well as taught prenatal and postpartum childbirth education classes.  So let’s put my experience to work helping you meet your breastfeeding goals and assisting you in your quest to provide the very best for your baby.
