Lactation Support for Every Family
Breastfeeding is amazing but can prove to be difficult or challenging at times. Determine your goals and address your difficulties, with an experienced and skilled professional. I am a Registered Nurse and an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant with a background in obstetrics, supporting families from the Barnum to Duluth, MN and surrounding areas.
BREASTFEEDING AND LACTATION CONSULTING AND SUPPORT IN DULUTH, MN AND SURROUNDING AREAS
I am a mother to three beautiful, happy, and very active boys! I’ve been married to my best friend for over 12 years and have been blessed with working in OB/lactation for the past 8+ years. I have both rural and urban setting hospital experience. I absolutely love labor and delivery, but breastfeeding has always been my passion. I have nursed all three of my boys, and each experience has been unique/challenging in its own way. I have professional and personal experience with labor, delivery, breastfeeding, and everything in between. My goal is to help ALL families reach their long-term breastfeeding/lactation/feeding goals. Being an OB nurse and IBCLC, I’m very passionate about innate healing and trusting in your body. Everyone's journey is unique, I’d love to be a part of yours, and help you reach your goals.
