The next mom's meet-up/weight check meeting will be Friday Dec 9th, 2022 from 12-2pm in Wethersfield, CT at the William J. Pitkin Community Center on 30 Greenfield Street. Come with your little one to talk to other moms and for breastfeeding/lactation support.
I am a mother of 2 children who has been a Breastfeeding Counselor with Breastfeeding USA since 2012. I have worked in public health for over 10 years, hold a MS degree in Molecular and Cellular Biology. After noticing many moms struggle through the breastfeeding experience, I became passionate about ensuring that resources and support be available to all parents. After completing volunteer counselor hours and education requirements I became certified as an IBCLC (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant). I am also a member of the ILCA (International Lactation Consultant Association).
What is an IBCLC?
An International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) is a health care professional who specializes in the clinical management of breastfeeding. IBCLCs have passed a rigorous certification exam and keep their knowledge and skills up to date through a re-certification program.
