Let me start with a story.
When I had my first baby, I thought breastfeeding would be easy. I thought it would be natural and come to me just like breathing.
Why did I think that?
Simple. People told me that’s how it would be.
I remember my mom shrugging her shoulders and saying that she “just breastfed” us.
I’d ask other people who remarked that they decided not to breastfeed “because formula is easier”.
I truly had no idea what to expect, I only had what others were saying as a guide.
Oh, and one more thing.
I’m a nurse with experience in the NICU. I saw moms breastfeed in the NICU daily.
No, it didn’t always look easy. But they always had a good attitude because they loved the time they got to spend feeding and cuddling their baby.
I had my daughter and faced struggles from day one. She wouldn’t latch on and breastfeed. I was stumped, I thought that she was supposed to… just DO it.
Day after day, she refused to latch on, and day after day, I grew increasingly worried. How was I failing as a mom this early in the journey? Why couldn’t I do something as simple as feed my child?
Sure enough, she developed jaundice from not eating enough. Feeling dejected and out of options, I started pumping. Knowing nothing about how milk supply works, I pumped so much that I was miserable and in pain from engorgement and over-supply. (I cried, A LOT.)
I still pushed on though. As a mom, I would do anything for my child. How could I have so much love for this little human that I’ve only seen for 3 months? I guess that’s the beauty behind’s a mom’s heart huh.
After 3 exhausting months pumping and trying to breastfeed, I finally did it.
My beautiful daughter latched on and I was breastfeeding like a PRO!
It took lots of trial and error, and some help from lactation counselors, but I did it! I was overwhelmed but so so happy.
Unfortunately, it didn’t take long for things to take a down turn again.
I started to worry about my milk supply. I wavered, and fell off the breastfeeding train when my daughter was 4 months old.
I was heartbroken, and went to bed with swollen eyes daily. My husband had to constantly remind me that I was not a failure of a mom.
However, one day, something clicked. I was tired of crying, and wanted to try feeding my child again. I needed something, some way to pick myself up and start over.
So I decided to take my nursing experience and become a certified lactation counselor.
It took me 2 full months to learn all about lactation. However, I was absolutely blown away by how much there was to learn about breastfeeding!(My daughter was now 6 months old.)
I was SO amazed that I decided to relactate. That wasn’t easy, but I KNEW that breast milk was SO much better for her health and for my own.
My daughter was given the benefits of breast milk until she turned one year old, and I’ve not had a more proud moment in my life.

My name is Kealy.
I’m a nurse and most importantly a mommy! In fact that’s why I got into lactation counseling in the first place.
When I had my first baby, breastfeeding was SO HARD. She didn’t want to latch, was malnourished and had jaundice. I dealt with supply issues, clogged ducts, and a whole lot more problems.
I looked for help, but it was either incredibly expensive or a trek across town that I couldn’t muster up the energy to do.
I decided to put my RN experience to good use and be a breastfeeding helper to moms everywhere.
I’ve been blessed to be able to meet moms where they’re at, and I work hard to make sure they feel heard. Because that’s what I wanted when I had breastfeeding struggles!
