Meet Jennifer Wade

Jennifer is a Lactation Consultant and Registered Holistic Nutritionist offering lactation and nutrition consulting to new parents. She is patient and empathetic without judgement. She prides herself on meeting her clients where they are and assisting them in taking baby steps to move forward. Jennifer provides clear and concise instructions and is available every step of the way. She is available for evening phone appointments, as necessary, when breastfeeding issues commonly arise.

 

"As a lactation consult, I help new moms and their families feel confident and comfortable during the postpartum period - it's such an amazing time, but it can easily be overwhelming when things don't quite go as planned. I love teaching people the power of listening to their bodies and learning their babies' individual cues. I believe in the body-mind-spirit connection and that it takes a village to support moms and their families." - Jennifer

Jennifer's Mission for You

"My own breastfeeding struggles led me to my passion for helping new moms breastfeed their babies without fear or pain. I never expected that something as natural as breastfeeding could be so difficult for me. I felt overwhelmed and frustrated every single day. If only I knew that it didn't have to be that way - that with a couple of adjustments to do what I was doing, that breastfeeding could be a truly enjoyable and beautiful experience." - Jennifer

Hobbies and Interests

"I spend my summers camping with my family in my trailer. I have started using minimalism to minimize the stress in my life and I like to help simplify my clients' lives. I am also a lifelong learner and student. I am always reading the latest research and attending conferences. I started training to identify baby language. I am also an instructor at the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition, teaching anatomy, physiology, chemistry, biology, pediatrics and preventative nutrition." - Jennifer
