"Breastfeeding is easy."
Someone once said that to me as I clinched my jaw during one of four failed attempts at latching on my own baby. If death stares were a real thing, she would have been laid out on the floor instantaneously. We've all heard that breastfeeding is a natural way to feed a baby and that infants are hard wired to latch and feed, but what we don't often hear is that it can be really really REALLY hard. If my babies would have been born in Lexington, I know I would have had immense support from one of the best lactation specialists in the state. I'd like to introduce you to Bonnie!
Bonnie's interest in lactation began as a student intern where she attended a breastfeeding class. After years of studying nutrition, she was intrigued by a humans first food (breast milk) and wondered why everyone wasn’t talking about it! Since then, she has committed her career to families to promote, and support breastfeeding. With over 10 years of experience in nutrition, breastfeeding, and birth as a Registered Dietitian (RD), International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) and a trained birth doula, she is excited to serve those in our community . Bonnie was born and raised in Tennessee, was a long-time resident of Kentucky, lived out her dream in New York City with her husband, and most recently lived and worked in Glacier National Park in Montana traveling the U.S. on an ultimate road trip. Currently, she is proud to be back in the Commonwealth of Kentucky helping moms and babies in and around Louisville, Lexington and Southern Indiana. Most recently, she became a mother to Finley, her greatest adventure yet!
As a lactation consultant, she has been honored to provide breastfeeding help for many families and supports them as they reach their breastfeeding goals.
Bonnie's specialties include the following: A deep understanding of nutrition as a RD, nutrition and lactation counseling, positive communication, and specialized training in tongue and lip ties.
