Mission

I am committed to serving all families. My goal as your lactation consultant is to support you and empower your decisions. I value your opinion and know that you know your baby better than anyone else. We will work together to come up with a plan that is realistic for you and your family and adjust that plan as needed. Feeding plans look different for each family and that is okay. I am here to help you meet your feeding goals.  ​

 Most insurance companies are now covering lactation services, but please call your insurance provider and ask about your specific coverage. I am taking private pay and insurance through The Lactation Network. I you would lie to private pay I can email you a superbill at the end of our appointment to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.

Kelsey is amazing. She is there to help you on your own breastfeeding journey, without judgement. The breastfeeding journey can be so hard- from underproducing to overproducing, and latch difficulties- it is an emotional process. I felt nothing but encouragement, grace, and love as she guided me through steps to meet my own needs for my baby. It doesn’t stop at the initial meeting either, she follows up and makes sure all bases are covered. Would have nothing but great things to say about my experience!
