Maya: International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC)
The needs of breastfeeding families stretch from pregnancy to infancy and even through toddlerhood. I have developed a strong understanding of successful breastfeeding through a combination of professional development and personal experience. My clinical experience first began as a social worker for at-risk new families in rural Arizona. This soon sparked an interest in the field of lactation as I watched moms struggle and fail in her attempts to breastfeed for lack of professional support.
I became an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant in 2010 and began working as such at Flagstaff Medical Center. As a mother of 3 breastfed children, I have experienced the many joys and benefits of breastfeeding. I have also experienced many of the real life challenges like sleep deprivation, breast infections, breastfeeding a NICU baby, postpartum depression and pumping and working to name a few.
