I have been a Lactation Consultant for over 25 years. I have a background as a pediatric RN and home-birth midwife, and have provided lactaton care both in a full-spectrum maternity unit and in my private-care home office. I have lectured at lactation conferences on many aspects of lactation and am the founder and executive Director of Baby Cafe USA, a national network of free community-based breastfeeding support sites.
