Your Lactation Consultant
Hello everyone, I’m Val, I’ve been a placenta encapsulator in the greater Los Angeles area for a little over 6 years now and love working with new mamas as well as mamas having their 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th and even 6th child. Throughout my time in the birth world, I’ve witnessed and hear many mamas struggle with their breast-feeding journey (myself included) and one very important element in this is finding a good lactation consultant because they are not all created equally, I saw 4 lactation consultants and none of them were able to help me. While seeing these mamas struggle, this has caused me to become curious to learn the ins and outs of the process of lactation.
Over the last year and a half, I’ve started my lactation-consulting venture. I’ve finished my general education toward my certification and am currently working on completing my breast feeding and lactation courses along with completing my 300 clinic hours, basically working side by side very skilled lactation consultants for hands on experience.
My goal is to providing lactation support for the mamas I encapsulate for by the end of spring 2020. I’m excited to be introducing this new service and helping mamas feel even better throughout their postpartum experience.
