About me

Hi! I’m Amanda DeWeese, and I am an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). I am also an accredited La Leche League (LLL) Leader and an experienced nursing mother of 5 (all boys!). I hold a BS in Health and Physical Education with a concentration in Health Promotion and a Master of Public Health (MPH) degree with a concentration in Maternal and Child Health, in addition to being Certified in Public Health (CPH). I guess you could say I love helping families and I’m a lifelong learner! I serve the Tampa Bay area as well as online. My own breastfeeding journey began when my oldest son was born as a preemie in 2010. With the right support, my son and I enjoyed a long and healthy breastfeeding relationship. I would be honored to support your family’s breastfeeding journey by empowering you to achieve your breastfeeding goals. I’d love to inspire confidence in your ability to make informed parenting choices and encourage the healthy and happy development of your growing family through evidence-based, clinical lactation support and education! xo, Your Breastfeeding Sidekick
