Amber was inspired to become a lactation counselor when her breastfeeding journey took an unexpected turn with her second child. Whereas her first child was born full term, Amber’s second was a preemie born at 28 weeks, and their breastfeeding relationship required her to embrace a whole new plan and perspective. This was a transformative experience, and it revealed the broad spectrum of what is possible in a breastfeeding/chestfeeding relationship. Amber was inspired to deepen her doula and newborn care work, and became a Certified Breastfeeding Counselor in 2016. She has supported many families, both at home and in the hospital, and as a facilitator of lactation circles. She also served as Outreach Coordinator for a non-profit milk bank, helping families all over New York gain education and access to safe donor human milk. Amber is passionate about helping her clients find joy and confidence in feeding, while appreciating that everyone’s goals, bodies, babies, and circumstances are completely unique. She educates and empowers families with evidence based strategies, compassion, and encouragement.
