About me

Like many people who work with parents and babies, my journey began with the birth of my first child. I discovered the support of La Leche League Canada and in response to the help I found there, I decided to volunteer with this organization. From 2000 to 2016, I supported many families and trained others to offer help. This work  encouraged me to pursue further studies in lactation. I trained in Montreal and became certified as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) in 2008. Since then I have been working in private practice, seeing families primarily in their own homes. I have an extensive education and training in the management of complex breastfeeding issues. Like all IBCLCs, I am required to recertify every 5 years through continuing education and every 10 years by exam.

Lactation support that meets your family's needs

Passionate about all things surrounding pregnancy, birth and breastfeeding I have worked in a variety of settings, offering a caring presence at births, assisting families with breastfeeding, teaching prenatal classes and training other health care professionals. I volunteered for many years as an IBCLC or doula for new arrivals and refugee claimants. I am LGBTQIA friendly. My approach is evidence-based, warm and respectful, allowing families to feel empowered and confident about their choices. My goal is to help you meet your breastfeeding, chestfeeding or human-milk feeding goals and to feel satisfied with the feeding relationship you have with your baby.

After my daughter was born, she was not latching on both my breasts and I was exclusively pumping. This, as a new mom was extremely demanding therefore, I consulted with Kimberley so I can try breastfeeding again. After two sessions, I was able to breastfeed my daughter. It is the best feeling in the world and it's all thanks to Kimberley. I couldn't recommend her more to all you moms who are struggling with feeding your baby .
