Wichita IBCLC Elisabeth

Wichita IBCLC Elisabeth

 

Elisabeth, RN, IBCLC

Elisabeth is one of our postpartum doulas as well as a L&D nurse, childbirth educator, car seat technician, and an IBCLC - an International Board-Certified Lactation Consultant. She lives in west Wichita with her husband and two daughters, who inspired her to choose a career in helping other parents meet their breastfeeding goals!

Elisabeth is one of just 27,000 IBCLCs worldwide, and one of just a handful of IBCLCs in Wichita. With 1000 hours of in-hospital breastfeeding observation, 90 credit hours in breastfeeding education, 3 years as a CLC (Certified Lactation Counselor), and 9 years as a registered nurse, she proudly holds the highest possible credential in breastfeeding support - it would be a fair comparison to call her a doctor of breastfeeding!

Elisabeth is committed to doing everything possible to help solve your breastfeeding issues and implement a care plan of action that works for you. From the time she enters your home like a breath of fresh air, her warm, encouraging personality and wealth of knowledge will have you saying “I CAN do this!” in no time.

I had preemie twins born at 36 weeks and one struggled with latching and intake, making tandem nursing difficult. It was hard to make it out of the house, so when Elisabeth came to us at our convenience in the comfort of my home, it made the process so much easier. Baby is now latching independently and I am now tandem nursing which I am very proud of! Elisabeth is patient, kind, and very knowledgeable. I am so grateful for her services!
