Hi! I'm Shari Criso.
I am a Labor and Delivery Nurse, a Certified Nurse Midwife, an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant, and also the mom of two beautiful breastfed daughters!
I have spent my entire professional career
(30 years!) caring for new moms and babies through every stage of pregnancy, birth, and new motherhood, and have helped hundreds of thousands of moms to successfully breastfeed.
My passion is educating and empowering new moms with the knowledge and the confidence they need to succeed in reaching their personal breastfeeding goals.
As a Midwife and a Lactation Consultant,
I know breastfeeding can be a vulnerable and challenging time.
As a mom, I know how hard it is to know who and where to turn to for the right advice and support.
After the birth of my first daughter in 2002, I found an overload of information to sift through. Hundreds of top parenting books, online websites, and lots of conflicting advice and information about pregnancy, breastfeeding, parenting, baby products.
It was all so overwhelming and confusing
I found myself struggling with breastfeeding early on, even though I was following the standard breastfeeding information I had been taught during my nursing and midwifery training.
I realized that if I was struggling this much, even after all those years of training and after DELIVERING OVER 600 BABIES, then there must be so many moms struggling even more!
