Hello! I'm so glad you are here!
My name is Milli Schaeffer. I found my passion about all lactation related topics after the birth of my first son, in 1997. Since then, I have been involved with my local La Leche League groups. I became a LLL Leader in 2001, after the birth of my daughter. I joined the WIC Program in 2003 as a Breastfeeding Peer Counselor to support a diverse and multicultural population. I later became a Certified Lactation Counselor in 2013 after the birth of my second son. Then continuing on as a Certified Breastfeeding Specialist in 2015, and finally taking the IBLCE exam to earn my credentials of International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) in 2016. I have been working with breastfeeding families for over 20 years in setting such as client's homes, breastfeeding clinics, hospitals, and I have done over 1,200 virtual consults all around the world!
I have personally experienced different birth and breastfeeding challenges with all my children. From different births types to NICU stay, and many issues in between. All these have helped me to learn more about breastfeeding and to be able to better support other breastfeeding/chestfeeding and lactating parents.
I'm also a certified Educator of Infant Massage (CEIM) and a Certified Parenting Educator (CAHPE)
