As a young girl, Melanie developed a passion for the birth world watching her father deliver babies. After she received her BS, she worked in adoption until she had her first child. She then became a stay at home mom for 16 years raising her 6 children. She breastfed them all, including tandem nursing her twins. Once all her children were in school, she became certified as a postpartum doula mainly serving families with twins, and triplets. A few years later she went back to school to become an IBCLC, International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. She has served hundreds of mothers and babies over the course of several years as a postpartum doula, and lactation consultant.
It has been her experience that many mothers do not have the resources to become successful at breastfeeding. She has extensive training and experience with tongue ties, and is able to educate mothers to make the right choice for their baby. She is also trained in infant massage and craniosacral therapy. Her passion is to educate, nurture, and support new moms and babies through their breastfeeding struggles in a non-judgemental and compassionate way. Her reviews alone speak to how she has helped save breastfeeding for so many. Contact her now to schedule a home or clinic visit.
