Hi! My name is Shannon. I am an Internationally Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). I am also a Registered Nurse (RN) with more than nineteen years of experience caring for patients.
For fourteen years I have worked in a busy hospital nursery/neonatal intensive care unit caring for hundreds of new babies every month. I treasure each and every experience managing the care of newborns from birth to discharge, especially when I'm helping a mom feed her baby during the golden hours immediately following birth, in the well-born nursery, while rooming-in, or receiving special care in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).
I proudly represent a very small percentage of the world's IBCLC's because I am not a mother and have never breastfed a child. After more than twenty years of marriage, my husband and I are in agreement that there is not going to be any children for us. Because I do not bring personal experiences into your consultation, I am uniquely qualified to remain "theoretically" pure as we problem-solve your specific situation together.
