Hi! My name is Jennifer Abdul-Rahman and I am an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) and I am here to help you along your breastfeeding journey.

Breastfeeding may be "natural" but it doesn't always come naturally, that's why I am here to guide you and give you the tools and education you need to make informed decisions and reach your goals! 

I offer expert, judgement free, and compassionate lactation care in the privacy of your own home. 

I know first hand how difficult breastfeeding can be, I became passionate about helping other mothers after my own struggles of breastfeeding my three boys. I worked full time and part time off and on and have dealt with work related problems and pumping. 

I understand how difficult navigating these new experiences can be and I am here to make it just a little bit easier for your family. Knowledge is power, allow me to help empower you to make informed decisions and make the best decisions for YOUR family.
