Kimberly Hill, BS, IBCLC
Kimberly has been an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) since 2007. Becoming an IBCLC requires several years of study and clinical practice specifically in lactation. This education is followed by a certification exam and continuing education and re-certification requirements. In short, her expertise is in lactation. She also has a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Texas A&M and a background in scientific research, which has taught her to understand and critically evaluate research studies. She and her husband have three children, so she also has personal experience with breastfeeding challenges and successes.
Kimberly has helped moms and babies with a wide variety of situations including: prematurity, cleft lip/palate, Down Syndrome, twins, triplets, jaundice, tongue-tie, refusal to latch, low milk supply (including IGT, BFAR, and pituitary dysfunction), severe maternal illness, infant cardiac disorders and adoption. Of course, she also has extensive experience helping families with more common questions, such as how to improve infant latch or continue breastfeeding if mom returns to work.
My goal is to help you reach your goal. I am happy to answer your questions and present different options for your situation, but the final decisions on how to feed your baby will remain with you. My job is to educate and empower. I am an expert in lactation, but you are the expert on your baby.
