Are you excited about the idea of breastfeeding your baby? Are you a little nervous or worried that things won’t go as planned? How about a combination of all of the above? Guess what, it’s totally normal!
Maybe you’re already breastfeeding and are trying to sort out new or ongoing problems that are getting in the way of the happy breastfeeding relationship you want with your baby. Maybe you’re frustrated and tired of trying to figure out what is wrong.
You’ve come to the right place!
I’m Mona Liza Hamlin, MSN, RN, IBCLC (please call me Mona ☺️). As a lactation consultant and pediatric nurse, my role is to give you the support you need and want to have the confidence and knowledge you need to reach your goals. Your wishes and dreams for you and your baby are important to me. I provide loving guidance and expert advice to help you find the best feeding plan for you and your baby.
Breastfeeding doesn’t always start out as rainbows and butterflies. Unfortunately, these babies don’t read the How to Breastfeed Manual in the womb! I know from my own personal and professional experiences how challenging and special breastfeeding can be.
Both my personal and professional experiences have helped mold me into the lactation consultant and mother I am today. I’ve had the opportunity to help mothers and babies with breastfeeding as a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) nurse and now oversee the lactation program in a leading children’s hospital. I am also very involved with several national organizations focused on maternal child health and the lactation field.
My core belief is that every mother deserves to get the support they need with breastfeeding.
I am excited to have the opportunity to help you and your new baby have a healthy start!
I look forward to helping you meet your goals, and finding a breastfeeding solution that works for you and your family.
With loving support,
