Hi! My name is Aqueelah.
It’s nice to meet you. Chances are you’re visiting my site because you, like many moms, require guidance along your breastfeeding journey. As a current breastfeeding mother, I would love the opportunity to support you. Here is a little bit about me. I have a background in adult education and community relations. My focus has always been on helping others reach their goals. As an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant, my practice encompasses my formal lactation education along with my personal breastfeeding experiences.
Through my breastfeeding journey I realized that although rewarding, breastfeeding can be challenging even when it’s not your first time around. My compassionate and resourceful approach can help you with any uncertainties and challenges you encounter as you learn to feed your baby.
I pride myself on being a lifelong learner. In addition to my credential as an IBCLC, representing the highest level of training for breastfeeding supporters, I hold a Master of Business Administration degree.
Because of my passion for staying up-to-date on the latest research, I can tailor my recommendations to meet the needs of each individual family. I seek out training above what is required, particularly in the field of tethered oral tissues (also known as tongue tie). My aim is to provide families with a solid foundation of informed and responsive support so they can move towards wellness for both parent and baby.
Like many of my peers in the breastfeeding community, my primary focus is insuring the baby is fed and that both mom and baby are harmoniously thriving.
