About Me
Melissa Jackson, BSN, RN, IBCLC

      I have four amazing daughters, an incredibly supportive husband and an adorable grandson. I breastfed each of my four daughters, however, not for nearly as long as I would have liked with the older two, primarily because I had no idea what I was doing and no idea how important it was.

     Fortunately, I learned what I needed to know to make my breastfeeding experiences with my third and fourth daughters very successful. I taught childbirth and newborn classes and was a childbirth doula for about ten years before deciding to become a registered nurse and then ultimately, I added IBCLC (Internationally Board Certified Lactation Consultant) to my credentials in January 2017. 

     I work part-time at a local hospital, helping parents with lactation questions in the immediate postpartum period. Assisting new parents as they overcome the different challenges that sometimes come along with breast/chest feeding and exclusively pumping is incredibly rewarding. I will work with you to help you reach your breastfeeding, chestfeeding and expressed breastmilk feeding goals, whatever those may be, and will assist you without judgment or pressure.

Convenient, Professional, Personalized 

Breastfeeding, ChestFeeding, and Expressed Breastmilk Feeding Services.
