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 overproduction of milk, to meet the challenge of transitioning back to a normal milk supply.  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 also quite useful for blocked ducts.
 
Diana is fluent in Spanish, and feels it's her calling to help multi-cultural mothers with their breastfeeding issues.
