Breast Feeding Support and Education
Kristine Keller, BS, IBCLC
I graduated from Southwest Texas State University in 1998, married, started a business and began a family. After having two boys and struggling with breastfeeding, returning to work and pumping at work, decided my calling was to help other mothers NOT go thru or repeat the same struggles I experienced with breastfeeding. I began my training as a WIC Peer Counselor, went back to school, became certified as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant, worked at the Austin Lactation Center for WIC, then went on to do some training in the hospital. While working in the hospital, it became apparent that I enjoyed and preferred to work in the outpatient world of lactation, so in 2015 I began my journey of working in private practice. I believe that every mom is different, every baby is different, and every breastfeeding experience is different… there is no one size fits all in lactation. I am determined to meet my client’s needs wherever mom happens to be when reaching out for assistance.
In home consultations are available as well as at Blessed Joy Birth Center in Terrell.
