Jennifer Hafele, IBCLC / Lactation Consultant
Jennifer Hafele, IBCLC
Becoming a mother changed me. The sappy commercials were right (at least about some things). As I grew into my new role, mothering through breastfeeding became second nature to me. I've been blessed to nurse three kiddos, all different experiences, just to underscore that they are three different individuals. Not that I could forget! I have an intense and passionate family full of characters who I wouldn't trade for the world. And I can't wait to meet yours!
Finding My Why
Connecting with others and helping them develop a satisfying nursing relationship with their babies brings me a joy like nothing else. As a volunteer peer breastfeeding counselor since 2011, I've been honored to walk with so many area families on their breastfeeding journeys. For me, stepping into this new calling was only a matter of time.
Now, as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant, I get to come alongside nursing pairs and provide both clinical expertise and empathetic counseling at an exciting and vulnerable time in their lives. This is much more than a job to me. Please visit my Services page to learn more about what I offer and how I can support your family. I look forward to connecting with you!
