Jillian Simon, RM IBCLC

My role as a Registered Midwife and IBCLC Lactation Consultant is to help parents develop a deeply connected, nurturing bond with their baby.  I offer non-judgemental support to help families meet their individual goals for infant feeding. I come alongside a family as a compassionate guide to offer information, hands-on assistance and experience as they navigate their parenting journey.
