WELCOME, I AM SO GLAD YOU ARE HERE!
Education. Support. Empowering
Courtney Miller has been registered nurse since 2016 and is now an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). Her passion for breastfeeding began after giving birth to her son in March 2019, and quickly realizing there wasn’t enough readily-available breastfeeding education and support – Now she says she has found her calling of helping moms and their families along their breastfeeding journey!
