“I have had a heart for helping others from a very young age. Over my years of being a RN, and then becoming a mother, God has molded me for this time; where I can connect with other parents and offer them expertise, understanding, empathy and grace, something all of us parents need daily. I am so privileged to get to live out my passion; helping to increase each parent’s confidence in their ability to care for their baby, through feeding, however they chose to feed them.”

MEGAN ABBASSI IBCLC RLC Nutritionist Lactation Consultant

"“When my first son was born in 2016, I wanted to breastfeed, but had so many challenges. He was losing weight, we were in excruciating pain and it was anything but easy.  I sought out help from many lactation consultants, until finally after 11 weeks of painful breastfeeding, 1 lactation consultant suggested I have my son get an oral assessment. After learning my son had tight oral tissues (tongue and lip ties), I dove into all the learning I could. I knew I wanted to support families that were struggling and didn’t know where to find help and answers. Being an IBCLC helped me have the knowledge to serve families all over and with my new son in 2020."

Suzanne Juel

Suzanne Juel IBCLC RLC Lactation Consultant

“I believe that when a mom and baby are struggling, whether it be with feeding, sleeping, colic, reflux or other issues, it is important to look at the whole picture to find the root cause of the problem. You can treat symptoms all day long, but as your baby grows, they will just develop into new symptoms. If you don’t find the root cause, you will always be chasing a new treatment.”
