Lactation Services

Emily Ager, CPM, IBCLC

Hi! I'm Emily. I am a trained midwife and lactation consultant with a background in out-of-hospital birth, clinical lactation services and years of breastfeeding experience. I feel honored to have worked with hundreds of families to find real solutions to their baby feeding challenges,  I am passionate about meeting parents where they are, connecting them to resources, and helping to create a sustainable support plan beyond one-on-one care. I love playing in the forest with my 2 young boys, pup and husband, cooking hearty homemade marinara sauce, and drinking massive pots of tea.
