I started off as a labor and delivery nurse and I wanted to go to nursing school for that. Once I had a baby and struggled with breastfeeding myself, I really saw the need for better education and for better support. I almost quit breastfeeding and thankfully, I had a lactation consultant to come and help me. Once we got over those initial hurdles, breastfeeding for me was such an enjoyable experience. The bond that it creates between you and your baby is just indescribable. I want every parent that hopes to experience that feeling to have that, and so I will do everything that I can to help.
