Hi! I’m Alex…
An International Board Certified Lactation Consultant
I’m here to hold a safe space for you to create the breastfeeding relationship you desire and transform how you feel about feeding your baby.
Breastfeeding is not one size fits all so you shouldn’t settle for basic, blanket advice. I started Motherhood Blooms Lactation™ and became an IBCLC because I know how defeating it feels to feel like you’re not producing enough milk or how frustrating it is to not be able to soothe your baby when they’re fussy.
I am passionate about helping you reach your desires for breastfeeding because I didn’t have that support in my corner when I breastfed my first child.
I had a very challenging time breastfeeding my firstborn. I didn’t feel a connection to him right away, I didn’t know if he was drinking enough milk and breastfeeding wasn’t enjoyable. I was faced low supply, painful breastfeeding, tongue tie, formula supplementing, syringe feeding, cup feeding, bottle feeding and pumping and more.
When we resolved our issues (after I reached out for support) my breastfeeding relationship with him was transformed. I was enjoying feeding him, I was proud of myself, I felt like I could keep going. That’s when I knew I wanted to help other parents feel good about feeding their babies so I went back to school as a brand new mom and spent the next 3 years studying and training to become an IBCLC.
I love supporting, educating and empowering new moms and soon-to-be parents in a safe, judgment-free environment.
It is important to me that you are seen and heard when we work together. You deserve to receive accurate and up-to-date information. Because of this I follow an evidenced based approach. I use current research and first hand experience to support the information I share with you.
I also combine this with mindfulness practices to give my clients the best chance at feeling successful and reaching their desires for feeding their babies.
To be a safe space for you to create the breastfeeding relationship you desire and transform how you feel about feeding your baby. To educate and empower you to confidently breastfeed pain free. To help you find your confidence in motherhood and listen to your intuition. I will support you on your breastfeeding journey(s) in a judgment free environment that you feel comfortable in.
For more mothers and lactating parents to feel empowered about how they feed their babies. To create more confidence in new moms so they can do what feels right for them. To help more people access to the help and support they need to feel confident in their abilities to breastfeed and to be supported at every stage of their breastfeeding relationship.
Support, compassion, community and connection. I feel everyone deserves support when feeding a baby. You deserve to be respected and feel safe and your voice deserves to be heard. Your feelings matter. You deserve truthful and accurate information to help you make the decisions that are best for you.
I spent 8 years in the Health & Wellness industry focusing on holistic approaches to nutrition and healing. Because of that, I bring a holistic approach to all the families I work with. Finding the root cause of what’s creating your challenges or concerns is important to me and is what will transform how you feel about your feeding relationship.
