My philosophy of care is simple... I provide moms with the most up-to-date, evidence-based clinical support in a way that empowers them to make the best decisions for their families...whatever they may be.
I have been practicing as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant for eight years in PA & NJ.
Aside from providing breastfeeding families with expert lactation support and management through comprehensive prenatal and postpartum consultations, I also work as an IBCLC on the maternity unit of Grand View Hospital, and am the Breastfeeding Manager for Norwescap WIC in Phillipsburg, NJ. My most important job, however, is being a mom to my four young children!
How is an IBCLC different than a breastfeeding "specialist," "expert," "peer counselor," "helper," or "Lactation Management Professional?" You may hear these terms and see credentials such as CLC or CLE after the names of such individuals, and while their support is important and helpful in a variety of situations, there is a very big difference between their knowledge, clincial skills, and experience versus that of an IBCLC. So what distinguishes IBCLCs from all the rest? Read below:
Lactation Consultant- What Does that mean?!
Amy E. Nansteel, MA, IBCLC
As an in-home care provider, Blossom Baby truly understands the value of human interaction and communication, and also about the importance of meeting moms where they are at. Since home visits don't work for everyone, I am also able to offer virtual consultations seven days a week. I am here to provide support for you and your family, whatever the situation!
