I am passionate about mothers receiving ongoing support to achieve their breastfeeding goals. Part of that support includes lactation professionals of color in BIPOC communities. I offer a monthly breastfeeding support group to women of color and a lactation training support group for aspiring IBCLCs of color. My goal is to attack and mitigate the barriers Black, Indigenous and women of color by creating a space for culturally sensitive and skilled lactation professionals of color.

FUTURE IBCLCs of COLOR
Are you interested in becoming an IBCLC? Then join us in our Facebook community the Future IBCLCs of Color Less than 1 percent of lactation consultants in the US are BIPOC.

We are an initiative transforming communities by empowering breastfeeding mothers and women of color aspiring to become certified lactation consultants and IBCLC’s.
