~Melissa Johnson~

I am a mother of three. My son is 25 and married and I have two teenage daughters still at home. We love to watch movies, go to Disney, and go to musicals. I was born and raised here in Southern California and can’t imagine being anywhere else.

~How many mamas I assisted?

Way too many to count although I really wished I had counted now! It must be in the thousands and it is really amazing to have touched that many lives at such a special moment

~Years of Experience

I have been working with new parents and babies since 2006. After I received my IBCLC, I worked in a hospital as a lactation consultant for about 5 years before I transitioned to private practice.

~Training

I started out training as lactation educator and a postpartum doula in 2006 through CAPPA.  I quickly realized that I wanted to go further and become a Lactation Consultant. I enrolled in University of California, San Diego’s lactation training program/internship. I sat for my IBCLC exam in 2008. I also have a bachelors degree and am CPR certified.

~Services Offered

I offer private lactation consults and also postpartum doula services.

~Location: Home visit and/or Office

I do home visits.

~Area Serviced

I service all of Orange County and South Bay.
