Hi, I’m Katy!
INTERNATIONAL BOARD CERTIFIED LACTATION CONSULTANT (IBCLC)
As a mom of four, I know that being a parent is a tough job. My own parenting and breastfeeding journey has not been without challenges, and I am sure yours won’t be either. I’m here to help you reach your goals.
The care I provide is focused on you, your goals, and your outcomes. I have supported hundreds of families through a range of challenges. Whether you think your baby may have tongue and/or lip ties, your nipples feel like they may fall off, your baby isn’t gaining as you had expected, or you just want to make sure that you are feeding as efficiently as possible, I can help.
I love seeing families happy. I love seeing families succeed. Whether their goals are to breastfeed their babies for weeks, months, or years, I get really excited to see families get into a space where they feel good and feel like they tackled the task at hand.
I love my family, and it really ties into my professional life as well. I have over thirteen years of breastfeeding my children under my belt. We’ve dealt with challenges from a bad latch and oversupply to thrush and food allergies. I’ve breastfed while pregnant and I have gently encouraged my children to wean when they were ready.
I connect with parents, and I encourage parents. I can help with any situation and we can help the breastfeeding parent and their baby be comfortable with their breastfeeding relationship. I want to get to know the whole picture of the pair. Providing breastfeeding support is different for every situation and it is best done when I have a chance to get to know the families I am working with.
