Your Breastfeeding Journey

The learned art of Breastfeeding

Breastfeeding is a beautiful journey for mother and baby. There is nothing more amazing than gazing into your little ones eyes while they happily nourish themselves from the precious milk your body makes. I like to describe the breastfeeding journey as a dance. When we learn a dance, there are many steps involved. Each step along the way requires time & patience by both mother and baby.

Most new mothers have a breastfeeding challenge that requires the professional guidance of a Lactation Consultant.

Nourish Lactation provides support for all breastfeeding challenges. Some of the most common ones are: latch issues, sore nipples, low milk supply, oversupply, multiples, and tongue tie.

In the comfort of your home, I will complete a thorough breastfeeding assessment and collaboratively, we will create a feeding plan that is right for you and your family to ensure your breastfeeding goals are met.

LEANNE RZEPA, RN BN IBCLC

REGISTERED NURSE, BACHELORS IN NURSING, LACTATION CONSULTANT IBCLC

I graduated from the University of Calgary with a Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing in 2000. I started to develop my passion for Breastfeeding working as a Post Partum Nurse as soon as I graduated and became an RN. I became an Internationally Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) in 2007 and have continued working within the Primary Care setting with the NICU and Pediatric populations in addition to operating NLC.

I opened Nourish Lactation Consulting in 2008 shortly after becoming an IBCLC. I could see from working within the hospital setting there was a tremendous need for additional in-home support for breastfeeding women. New moms come home sleep deprived, and information overloaded. I knew there was a better way to support our breastfeeding moms out in the community.

So I decided to open Nourish Lactation Consulting which provides in-home breastfeeding support and education to new mothers in the comfort of their home to help them get breastfeeding off to the best possible start.  

I have 3 beautiful daughters. Kayla, Alyssa, & Maya. I breastfed all 3 of them and believe me, I had big-time challenges and am very familiar with the breastfeeding journey!!! I truly feel that my own personal experiences have taught me so much and enable me to support and teach other women in an empowering, thoughtful manner.

I am passionate. I am experienced.

With my support, we will make a difference for you and your baby!
