Lactation Consultants

Lactation Consultants help empower mothers in building their confidence in their breastfeeding choices.

What is a lactation consultant?

While breastfeeding is a natural process, sometimes it doesn’t come naturally to all moms and babies.

 

This is when an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant can help ease some of your worries, and assist with some of the difficulties you may be experiencing. 

 

A lactation consultant is a specialist trained to help you breastfeed your baby. 

Andrea is a Registered Midwife and an International Boarded Certified Lactation Consultant. She is the coordinator of the Expecting & Connecting program.

 

As a midwife and lactation consultant, Andrea can help you breastfeed, identify problems with breastfeeding, and help with these problems. She offers both virtual, clinic and home postpartum visits.

 

This program is FREE,  it is government funded.

IBLCE establishes the highest standards in lactation and breastfeeding care worldwide and certifies individuals who meet these standards.
