Breastfeeding is one of my greatest passions. After struggling to breastfeed my first son, successfully breastfeeding my second son for a year brought me so much joy and pride. Once it clicked for me and baby it was unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. The breastfeeding relationship is incredibly special; It’s such an awesome way to bond with your child and feel confident as a mother.
I currently provide breastfeeding support as a postpartum doula and through WIC as a Breastfeeding Peer Counselor. I am becoming certified as a Breastfeeding USA Counselor, as well. I’ve also taken a 20 hour lactation course, which is what nurses in Baby-Friendly certified hospitals are required to do to provide breastfeeding help and education.
I am always learning as much as I can about breastfeeding. In the future, I hope to become an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant.
Breastfeeding is a mother's gift to herself, her baby and the earth.
