Helping parents navigate their individual and unique feeding journeys to achieve their definition of success based on their personal goals.
Hospital inpatient (postpartum, NICU, high-risk antepartum, Pediatric Congenital Cardiac unit), outpatient, and mother-to-mother breastfeeding support groups.
My family includes my husband, four children, three cats, and one dog.
I love last-minute beach trips, fostering orphaned puppies and kittens, and wandering around TJMaxx and thrift shops, finding "treasures" I never knew existed.
Registered Nurse since 1997
I knew after repeatedly watching parents in tears and feeling defeated as they struggled with feeding their infants regardless of their age, education level, or race.
I became an IBCLC because parents deserve accurate and correct information needed to make an informed decision. They need to be respected to decide what works best for them.
Always follow your instincts and listen to your baby! There is no one who knows your baby better than you. At the end of the day, this is your journey and your story...it has to work for you and your family!
