I am a Registered Nurse (RN) and an International Board-Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), the gold standard of lactation care. I obtained a Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing from the University of Detroit Mercy and a Bachelor’s of Integrative Studies from Oakland University.
Breast is Best
As parents, our deepest instinct is a yearning for our children to thrive. We want our children to be healthy.
“Amanda was amazing! She responded very promptly and was able to come to our house the next day which meant so much to us – when feeding a newborn every 2-3 hours, a day or two can seem like an eternity. She did a complete assessment and made a huge difference in our baby’s latch and ultimately our whole nursing experience. She found a lip tie that required a procedure that would have gone completely unnoticed by us and the pediatricians. We can’t thank Amanda enough – I don’t dread nursing anymore!”
“Amanda was great, she responded to my request really quickly to see us. She reassured and talked through lots of my questions and positioning to help me reach my goals. She also followed up after the appointment to check how things were going which is great. If I ever need support again I’ll be reaching back to her. 😁”
“Amanda literally saved me! I am beyond thankful for her. I was very uncomfortable in the beginning of my journey until she came in and helped me. She relieved me from pain and made my experience moving forward so much better!!! I’m so grateful for her support and continuous follow up. This is someone who cares about what they do and will 1000% make you feel comfortable! Thank you Amanda!!!”

“Amanda is great. My 6-week-old was on a nursing strike and she was able to assess the situation and help provide some realistic solutions that helped get us back to nursing like normal. She approaches things in a supportive, non-judgmental way and takes into account people’s real-life situations to come up with a plan. She has continued to be a supportive resource to me as new breastfeeding questions come up. I can’t recommend Amanda enough!!”
“Amanda was extremely friendly, personable, and knowledgeable! She was able to answer all of my questions with ease and help me feel comfortable about going back to work while maintaining breastfeeding my baby. I highly recommend her to any soon-to-be moms or new moms.”
