BABE was birthed in August 2011 by Leah Jolly and Misti Ryan.
Both Leah and Misti have been dedicated to educating pregnant moms and helping new moms breastfeed through their volunteer work with La Leche League (LLL) since 2004. Misti has been helping expectant and new moms since she became a mother/baby nurse in 1998. They didn't meet until October of 2010 when they got together to discuss LLL business. Then, in early March 2011, they began meeting weekly to study for the IBCLC (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant) exam.
Over the course of their meetings, they discovered they had attended the same college as freshmen and that they had a mutual friend there. They began to feel that God had this plan in mind for them even then. A friendship grew and an idea with it. Now, they are serving mothers and babies as International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLCs).
In 2015, BABE welcomed our newest IBCLC, Heather Williams.
What Services Does BABE provide?
BABE offers full service lactation consultations in your own home. We offer pre- and post-natal consultations, breastfeeding classes, and group presentations. Lactation consultants can help evaluate infant feeding, troubleshoot problems, offer suggestions for breast and nipple pain, and give mothers the tools they need to meet their breastfeeding goals.
