ANDREA ZOOKCLC, BC, PCD | Lactation Consultant, Post-Partum Doula
Breastfeeding doesn’t have to be an “all or nothing” approach. While some babies get off to a great start with nursing, others have a few added obstacles along the way. Breastfeeding and/or Pumping is uniquely different for each family, I am here to support whatever it looks like for you. I provide education, assistance and evidence-based solutions for your specific needs.
I’ve consulted with Postpartum and Breastfeeding families in the Twin Cities since 2002 within my private practice. My passion for this profession began while studying for my Nursing Degree at the College of St Catherine. Although after having my own daughter along the way and struggling with some of our breastfeeding difficulties, I realized that there must be an easier way through some of these challenges.
With that experience, my business was born!
I am a Certified Lactation Counselor (Academy of Lactation Policy and Practice) and Certified Postpartum Doula (DONA). I have completed all of the education/requirements and have been approved to sit for the IBCLC exam on April 2, 2018. I have the privilege to see clients for consultations in the hospital, office or their own homes.
I look forward to meeting and working with you on your unique breastfeeding needs and goals.
