I am thrilled to be joining the San Diego Breastfeeding Center to support our local families. When I had my baby girl, I was so fortunate to have expert help with breastfeeding while in the hospital. I was even more fortunate to find the San Diego Breastfeeding Center for continued support and expertise as my baby grew and our breastfeeding journey evolved. Realizing that there are so many other women who are not given the support they need or able to find local resources on their own has driven me to begin the path towards becoming an IBCLC. I look forward to what this journey has in store for me!
