Kirsten uses her own experiences with being a new mother to drive her passion to help other women like her as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) in her own practice as well as at a WIC clinic. “I always want to be helping others,” she said. She’s grateful for what an impact her own lactation consultation had on her experience, and she wants to help advocate for and encourage other women as well.
But as we are now in an age where we are taught to practice self-care, we know that constantly giving ourselves to others can be draining. To stay inspired, Kirsten says she looks to her mother’s and grandmother’s servant hearts. “If I can make it through another day, it has been worthwhile,” she said.
