Patricia De Lima, IBCLC

Patricia De Lima, IBCLC

Patricia is an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) and holds a Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT). Her lactation journey started while working as a counselor for pregnant teenagers at a hospital in NYC. When she became aware of the lack of education in preparing the young mothers for childbirth and breastfeeding during prenatal care, Patricia got some basic training in lactation and started teaching a prenatal breastfeeding class for pregnant teens once a month.

As her passion for breastfeeding started to grow, she became a Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC) in 2008 and later in 2012 she became an IBCLC. As a lactation consultant, Patricia has worked in hospitals in postpartum units with mothers and babies dyads, in the NICU and pediatric inpatient and outpatient, helping families achieve their breastfeeding goals.

In 2019 she moved to Temecula, CA with her husband and two children Sophia and Logan, where she now works in private practice as a Lactation Consultant. Patricia is fluent in Portuguese and Spanish.
