My first son was born a little early than excepted and we had some breastfeeding challenges. A Lactation Consultant helped us a lot and I was able to achieve my breastfeeding goals. I also received guidance with my second child, and by the time I had my third baby I fell completely in love with breastfeeding and decided that helping mothers and babies with breastfeeding issues is what I want to do.
I have been helping mothers with breastfeeding for over 5 years and have more than 10 years of personal breastfeeding experience with my own kids.
I am a Pharmacist (Bs.Pharm), a Board Certified Lactation Consultant Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) and a Certified Lactation Educator (CLEC). I was fortunate to be trained by well-known, amazing IBCLC's in outpatient clinics and in a mother-baby unit in hospitals, both in the US and in Israel.
I volunteer as a La Leche League leader after having benefiting from the organization's support with my own three children.
I use to work as an IBCLC at the mother-baby unit of Good Samaritan Hospital in San Jose for 3 years. I was fortunate to be able to support families in initiating breastfeeding right from the first hour after the birth, and provide ongoing care until discharged from the hospital.
Since 2017 I own a successful private practice and I am helping families with many breastfeeding challenges in their home. I provide care for various situations, from basic education to complex cases.
I am flexible, resourceful and creative. If one way doesn’t work, we will find another way.I have a multicultural background and excellent communication and listening skills. All of these allow me to create a special space for you and your baby to enjoy breastfeeding.
