We might not have it all together, but together we have it all.
Be supported, build your village.
Jessica Thomas is a graduate of Columbia University with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and is an International Board-Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). Her most recent nursing experience has been as an RN and Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC) in Labor, Delivery, Post-partum, and recovery. She has also been honored to attend homebirths as a birth assistant. Holding space during these moments has been one of the greatest blessings.
She first pursued this work after the birth of her two children. She saw the strength new parents found in themselves and in the support and knowledge they shared with each other. She hopes to start honest, respectful, and realistic conversations about birth, parenthood, and infant feeding that build a culture of celebrating women and parent’s strength and wisdom. She has a passion for building wellness and community by encouraging shared decision making in healthcare, community support, and informed evidenced based education.
For more complex difficulties with several areas of focus, a longer private appt is needed to allow adequate time & attention to be given to your little one. Enjoy in the comfort of your own home
