A little bit about me.

Hi! My name is Kim and I am a mom to two amazing kids. I realized my calling was to help families in their pregnancy, labor & postpartum journeys after hiring my own doula for the birth of my son. The birth of my first child didn't go quite as I expected and I knew the second time around I had very specific goals. After learning about birth doulas I knew that I needed one on my team to achieve the birth I wanted the second time around! Since then I have dove head first into the world of birth work and lactation support. In 2018 I began my journey as a postpartum doula and then as a birth doula. Working with families during the postpartum period made me realize that I needed more breastfeeding and lactation education. In 2019 I became a Lactation Educator through UC San Diego and it didn't take long for me to realize that I wanted to be the one to help families with all of their breastfeeding and lactation challenges from start to finish. In 2021 I completed my Lactation Consultant education and clinical training through UC San Diego and sat for and passed the exam to become an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC).

As a mom who ended up exclusively pumping for 10 months because my first baby refused to latch after a NICU stay and then struggling with another child who had a lip and tongue tie, I understand... I understand wanting nothing more than to breastfeed your baby but things are just not going they way you thought. I understand the pain and frustration of a baby who can't latch well even though the LC at the hospital says "latch looks great".  My journey with a tongue tied baby has made me especially passionate about helping other families navigate through feeding challenges and oral restrictions. Because I understand know that I am here to help! I am passionate about helping  families successfully navigate through their postpartum and breastfeeding journeys.
