Feed Your Baby University will give you all of that AND more.
Feed Your Baby University is a self-paced online class with videos from ME to get you breastfeeding with confidence! There is also an option for support beyond the videos if you need it.
I see you, because I was you.
I was a young mother via c-section to a 36-week-old, jaundice, hypoglycemic, fussy, little boy.
I experienced breast engorgement, a bad latch, supplementing, pumping, nipple injuries, lack of support, and a MESS of a postpartum period. I felt like a failure.
I can still remember looking at myself in the hospital bathroom mirror and thinking, “this should not be this hard… you are a smart person.”
Little did I know… sometimes shit just happens. It wasn’t my fault. I just didn’t know where to turn to fix my issues. This isn’t the experience for Feed Your Baby University Graduates.
I know why you keep pushing through
- You’ve heard about all the great benefits of breastmilk and can’t stand the fact that your baby doesn’t get any or “enough”.
- Your friends and family have been making snarky comments about your breastfeeding and you don’t want them to be right.
- Formula is expensive and you feel like breastfeeding is a way you can contribute to the family while you aren’t working.
- Dr. Google at 3am tells you that breastfeeding will prevent terrible things from happening to your baby later in life AND also tells you that your breastmilk might be causing *insert any random issue baby is having* Can you say…”confusing?”
- You want to give your baby all the breastmilk you can before you go back to work and “lose your supply completely.”
Feed Your Baby University is the solution!
Postpartum parents are some of the most under-loved and under-appreciated groups of people in existence. As one of my students and patients in Feed Your Baby University, you will:
- Feel confident that your baby’s health is top-of-mind without losing yourself in the process of fixing the issue.
- Give yourself the opportunity to solve your breast-feeding issues from the comfort of your own home.
- Prevent yourself from having a long germy wait at an unhelpful Pediatrician’s office.
- Provide yourself with easily accessible videos for life that you can go back to at any point in time during your breastfeeding journey.
- Support yourself AND your partner with actionable tips to managing a smooth postpartum period.
- See yourself through the early troubleshooting of breastfeeding, to starting solid foods, and finally through a gentle weaning process.

It really is possible to have a calm, pain-free, no-panic breastfeeding journey. We got this!
My Happy Clients!
Get it, girl.
Feed Your Baby University provides you with all the evidence-based advice you need to absolutely ROCK breastfeeding.
(Skip the crappy unsolicited Facebook advice from a friend’s friend who breastfed 16 children… that’s not helpful)
Hi, I'm Heather.
I’ve helped thousands of parents achieve their breastfeeding goals without compromising their mental health or lifestyle.
Not that long ago, before I was a Certified Nurse-Midwife and Board-Certified Lactation Consultant, was a mother who struggled with breastfeeding. I honestly thought I was failing as a mother and questioned my body’s ability to provide for my baby. I suffered needlessly and yes… there was crying.
This was my belief: I have been in difficult situations before and have “hard-worked” myself out of them. So, I will just work hard at breastfeeding and it will be ok. Now, after years of work in labor and delivery, women’s health and lactation I can tell you that I was only half right. There is an element of persistence through the hard times that does require some work on your end.
However, the half that I was missing was preparation, education, and realistic expectations. I had no idea where to go or how to solve my 3-am feeding problems other than mindlessly scrolling the internet for answers. So, I got to work making this resource for you.
On a personal note, I want you to know that I had a second child vaginally (VBAC for-the-win) and had a very positive breastfeeding experience. I would rather you enjoy your breastfeeding journey rather than simply “survive” it.
So, if you came to this resource out of fear from your first bad breastfeeding experience… please know that we can change that here!

More Happy Clients!
…I wish I would have had this with my first child. It just would have been a game changer; A lifesaver for my entire family essentially.
I’m the first one who’s really breastfed in my family and be open about it as well.
Now that I know a lot more after your class, I’m so thankful, and I know I can do this. I can rock this time! I’m so thankful for you. You did a wonderful job getting that information across.
… with my first I struggled for a few weeks and then we started supplementing, and that was that.
My mom always told me, “I was never able to breastfeed any of you kids.”
She had five kids and you know, we were talking just yesterday and she said, “you know what?… If I would’ve known half the stuff that you know right now after that class, I would’ve breastfed all of you!
I was so scared before your class about supply and not having any support around me or anyone who’s ever done it. Look at us now!”
Heather has been absolutely amazing with helping our premature baby to breastfeed.
While in the hospital she had tips for ensuring our baby got the colostrum even though she was unable to latch at the time.
She is extremely knowledgeable in her field. Once we were discharged from the hospital I developed a rash on my chest that prevented me from breastfeeding.
Heather called with advice on how to keep up my milk supply while our baby was unable to breastfeed.
I cannot say enough great things and highly recommend Heather’s services! Thanks to her advice we have a happy breastfed baby!
