Hi! I’m Megan. I am an international board certified lactation consultant (IBCLC). I am also a licensed Registered Dietitian (RD). I am passionate about giving your child the best and healthiest start you can. I have two children who were both breastfed, despite our many bumps in the road. I feel these experiences help me relate to many moms out there. During a breastfeeding consultation, I pull from professional experiences but I also understand the personal, emotional side of breastfeeding. I have been counseling pregnant and breastfeeding moms for over 9 years and look forward to spending many more years helping moms, babies, and young children in the State College area. I love seeing moms at the beginning in our prenatal breastfeeding class and all the way through toddlerhood and table foods. It’s such a fun start to the journey and I love being there to witness it. Thank you for letting me be a part of your breastfeeding journey.
Hi, I’m Marjorie! My love of all things breastfeeding began when I was studying Nutrition at Penn State. I was fascinated by the nutritional superiority of mother’s milk. At the time, I wondered why some women didn’t breastfeed. I learned the answer to that question over the next 13 years while I counseled nursing mothers. Breastfeeding doesn’t always go as planned! My personal struggles with nursing my son made me realize how much professional help is needed. I decided to work towards a career in lactation by becoming an IBCLC. I understand the challenges you’re facing and look forward to helping you overcome them.
