My name is Kelsey Smith. I am a wife, mother, RN, Lactation Educator and an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. In 2015, my daughter was born and so was my passion for the world of lactation. With both children, breastfeeding didn't come easily. Each new child brought new challenges that with hard work and perseverance, we ultimately overcame. I saw this world that could be so beautiful and so incredibly frustrating all at the same time and knew I wanted to be a part of it. My experience and challenges led me to want to help others entering the world of breastfeeding. As a registered nurse, I've seen first hand the lack of support offered to mothers during the post partum period and knew I wanted to be part of that change. This led me to begin my journey to become a Lactation Consultant. I love working with families to help them meet their breastfeeding goals, whatever those may be. I am a graduate of the Pathway 2 Lactation Consultant program through UCSD and have also served as a mother to mother support with La Leche League International since 2016. I also hold a current membership with the international organization ILCA. Being a mom is hard enough, and trying to navigate it alone is even harder. Thank you for inviting me into your family and letting me become a part of your journey. xo, Kelsey

Kelsey is caring and passionate about helping and empowering women when it comes to motherhood. She has an innate ability to make a mother feel seen and heard and takes a collaborative approach when it comes to feeding issues with baby. Her depth of knowledge allows her to think outside the box and identify reasons for feeding issues that are often missed by a pediatrician. Kelsey desires that each mother is able to feel successful in achieving what she desires feeding to look like with her baby. All are welcome, no issue is too big or small, and her practice is a safe space to navigate all of the joys and challenges motherhood can bring.
