Indigo Forest is proud to announce a new collaboration with experienced lactation specialist, Keleigh Lee, IBCLC!
Keleigh Lee, IBCLC, is an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant trained to support mothers meet their breastfeeding goals. The IBCLC credential is the most advanced lactation certification available and ensures a level of expertise mothers need and deserve (www.iblce.org). Much misinformation exists and can have major negative impacts on breastfeeding success. Keleigh is a mother of four children who have all breastfed and knows how vulnerable and fragile the newborn stage can be.
“My goal in providing breastfeeding guidance is to empower families to solve their breastfeeding challenges and get back on track. By inviting me into your life you share a trust with me and I will do all in my ability to hear your story with respect and caring as I help to work through your problems.”
Keleigh is also an accredited La Leche League Leader (www.lllaa.org) and a volunteer Lactation Consultant for the Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) program where she has helped hundreds of mother-baby pairs over the years. Her professional background as a medical illustrator and extensive lactation science education give her a solid medical foundation for handling a wide range of breastfeeding issues. She is a self-described “lactation geek” and will happily treat you to lactation geekery details if asked!
Supporting Happy Healthy Nursing Relationships
With Beth Bailey Barbeau, Midwife, Indigo Forest Founder

While breastfeeding is the most ‘natural thing in the world’, it’s no longer ‘coming naturally’ to many mother-baby pairs. In this seminar suitable for both student & professional, find out why ‘normal’ births are creating obstacles to satisfying breastfeeding, how to counsel families for early success, and the essentials of a satisfying breastfeeding relationship. Emphasizing both naturopathic & practical problem-solving, we’ll detail a wide range of responses to common concerns – come prepared to take your skills & confidence to a whole new level!
