LACTATION CONSULTING

Feeding your baby doesn’t have to be challenging

Breastfeeding and bottle feeding issues can be improved with expert advice and support

As a Registered Nurse and International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), I have the training and experience to help with basic to complex feeding issues. My in-depth assessment and examination takes every detail into account to find the best solutions for your concerns.

I understand the level of exhaustion and overwhelm new parents feel, and my job is to come alongside you and make your journey easier.

The result? A more enjoyable feeding experience, however that looks for you.

FAQ’S

ABOUT

MEET HEATHER

Hi, I’m Heather. I grew up in a small Alberta town and moved to BC to pursue my nursing degree.
I have been a Registered Nurse for 18 years, working first as a postpartum & perinatal nurse in a large teaching hospital and then as a public health nurse. I have been so fortunate to have spent most of my career working with families, newborns and children. Three years ago, I became an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) and opened a private practice to be able to support more complex feeding challenges, and I absolutely love it.
Most recently I have taken additional training in identifying and treating oral restrictions such as tongue ties and lip ties. There is much that can be done to improve feeding for these babies, and I offer a multifaceted team-oriented approach.
On a personal note, I am married and a mom of two young children aged 7 and 5.
I enjoy reading and singing, volunteering at my church, being outdoors, and spending time with my family.
