Hello, fellow mamas
Motherhood looks so picture-perfect in the movies. A little bundle of joy…..
….to me, it was more like cracked nipples, clogged milk ducts, and latch issues.
Don’t get me wrong. My three boys are the best thing to ever happen to me. But, breastfeeding, well, that’s another story.
As I was breastfeeding my children, I felt that I really lacked the support and guidance I needed to breastfeed. I had nurses and doctors who taught me how to breastfeed, but what happened when I ran into problems? I spent a lot of time consulting Google, posting in parenting groups and calling friends to help me. Some of the advice I got was great, but others were… conflicting.
When it comes to being a mom and navigating breastfeeding, misinformation and old wives tales run rampant. Finding sound advice that will actually work for you can be a challenge.
So, I decided to do something about it.
I became an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant, I wanted the opportunity to be there for other moms as they navigate their own journey. I wanted to become that person you can turn to when things don’t go as smoothly as planned.
If, like me, you’re facing obstacles in breastfeeding and are over all the misinformed advice, I think me and you might get along.
