LACTATION CONSULTING

Feeding your baby doesn’t have to be challenging

Breastfeeding 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 in both hospital and community settings. I have been so fortunate to have spent most of my career working with families with 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 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.
