Who I Am

Nikki Jones, RNC-NIC, IBCLC

As a NICU-Certified Registered Nurse and an Internationally Board Certified Lactation Consultant with over 16 years of experience helping moms and babies with their lactation needs, I understand the weight and frustration of learning to feed your baby and not knowing where to turn to first. When my first daughter arrived prematurely at 32 weeks, my first experience with a Lactation Consultant was not a pleasant one.  She made me feel guilty about my lactation choices, I did not feel supported and in turn experienced everything that could go wrong with my lactation journey. My goal is to give my clients caring lactation support,  education, tools and resources that they need to go forward and put a plan together that’s personalized and effective.

Successful breastfeeding journey

I cannot even begin to say enough good things about our experience working with Nikki! When my daughter needed some extra monitoring in the NICU, I was worried how my breastfeeding journey would begin. She went above and beyond while we were still in the hospital to help lay the foundation for feeding success. Upon leaving the hospital, I knew I needed a little more help. Nikki was so accommodating to our schedule and the ups and downs of my postpartum journey. She truly cared about how both my baby and myself were healing and was genuinely there to support us. She came to our home and had everything we could possibly need for success. She was encouraging, comforting, loving, and just what I needed to be successful! I cannot say enough wonderful things about Nikki and the amazing support and love she provides to the breastfeeding journey.
