Hi! My name is Katie Scott. I am a fun, chubby, middle-aged farm chick that loves to hang out in my jammies with my family and my goats! I have been a Registered Nurse for 27 years. I have worked predominantly in Labor and Delivery, Postpartum, Newborn Nursery, and as an IBCLC (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant). I am also a farmer and have raised dairy goats for about 50 years. I have a herd of 30+ goats and I milk many by hand every day! I am also, most importantly, a wife and mother of four wonderful children. So… I literally do something related to “Lactation” every day of my life!
For years my co-workers begged me to help their patients attach their babies to the breast. They jokingly called me the “Breastfeeding Fairy”, “Baby Whisperer”, or “Latch Queen”, etc. Parents would constantly ask me to “go home with them”! Well, I couldn’t, and I didn’t want them to feel like they were being deserted after discharge from the hospital. It was then I realized I could do more good for parents by going to their homes and following their progress if I went into Private Practice!
I have spent MANY hours working with breastfeeding mothers, took many hours of Lactation related education and then a rigorous exam to be able to give you the most expert level of care. I have experienced breastfeeding struggles of my own and am deeply empathetic to everything that you may be experiencing. I WANT to help. Helping parents prepare for their baby and succeed at breastfeeding is my ultimate goal and brings me a lot of joy to see success. That is my reason for doing what I do.
