I am Amy Grant, an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. I am experienced in helping moms and babies with a variety of breastfeeding difficulties including low milk supply, oversupply, twins, post c-section, babies with special needs, sore nipples, latch issues, slow weight gain, as well as general breastfeeding management. I love visiting new moms in their homes and helping them to have the breastfeeding relationship they hope for.
I have two young children and began my interest in the lactation field when I struggled with breastfeeding my daughter. Not realizing that there was real help available, I resorted to pumping exclusively. While pregnant with my son, I was determined that he would breastfeed! I began attending La Leche League meetings and attended a breastfeeding support group at my local hospital. We had a bit of a rocky start, and required a bit of help, but we were ultimately successful. I realized my passion for helping moms and babies breastfeed when I acted as a "cheerleader" for a friend with a sick baby who needed to pump. From there I became a La Leche League Leader and became a Certified Lactation Specialist in 2007.
From that point, I worked on obtaining the many hours required to take the IBCLC exam and I was able to take and pass the exam in 2009. I recertified in 2014.
If you are having breastfeeding difficulties, or just have a question, feel free to call me. I would love to help!
