Hi, I’m Jess.
International Board Certified Lactation Consultant serving the Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia areas

Compassionate Care

As a mom to three wild children, I intimately understand the struggles that modern families face. Parenting is the hardest thing you’ll ever do, and I am right there with you. I’ve been the mom breastfeeding a baby in the store, trying to contain a hangry toddler. I know how challenging it can be to navigate the overwhelming amount of parenting information on the internet, and the waves of well-meaning advice (start solids! don’t start solids! cosleep! never cosleep! babywear! don’t spoil that baby!) 

I want to support you where you are in your parenting journey, and help you meet your goals, by providing you with the latest evidence-based info, years of formal training and endless continuing education, combined with a decade of experience supporting families across the Southeast Georgia and Northeast Florida areas. 

 

 

I love supporting families as they become new parents, or sixth-time parents! Parenthood is such a wild and transformative experience, which is why I also offer various classes and workshops beyond lactation and breastfeeding, and my Parent Circle for all parents and children to find support and knowledge from each other.

I was really struggling to nurse my first born. Jess came and helped me work though the process and helped me feel empowered. So thankful for Jess and what she does.
