My passion for breastfeeding bloomed when my daughter was born in 2009. “My favorite saying is that I birthed her and she birthed a Lactation Consultant”. The passion to support new families in the postpartum period also blossomed, especially supporting Black families. When I learned about the low rates coupled with the lack of support, I went on to become an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) as well as a Postpartum Doula. When I found out about Chocolate Milk Café I was excited to join a group of badass Facilitators and expand my network of providing Lactation/ Human Milk feeding support in the Black community.
