Diana Gifford, IBCLC 

     Diana has been supporting mothers, helping them to achieve their breastfeeding goals since 2004.  Diana earned her IBCLC in 2011 and is focused on providing Private Practice Lactation care in your homes. 
 
     As the mother of 3 breastfed children, Diana has a practical knowledge of breastfeeding as well as a greater empathy for those mothers seeking assistance with their lactation issues.  This personal experience, coupled with her IBCLC Certification and 10 years of experience as a professional in Lactation practice in our community, provides her the requisite training to assist local nursing mothers effectively.


Her special gift is helping women struggling with meeting the challenge of transitioning to a normal milk supply from either over-production or from too little milk.  Her skills include support of effective initiation of breastfeeding, assessment of breast and nipple pain: nipple cracks, mastitis, dematitis, eczema. Diana  incorporates natural healing methods where appropriate. She has great success performing immediate engorgement relief with hand expression techniques, which are useful for blocked ducts.

Her Baby Scale Rental Service has been quite busy and is helpful to moms
concerned about tracking their infant's weight changes.

 
Diana is fluent in Spanish, and feels it's her calling to help multi-cultural mothers with their breastfeeding issues.
