Meet Ellen

Welcome! I’m an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) and Aetna in-network provider, making home visits in the San Francisco Bay Area. My goal is to help moms and babies with their breastfeeding goals and issues with calm, non-judgmental support and evidence-based research.



“Ellen is incredibly warm and down-to-earth, supportive and non-judgmental, and just a lovely person. I’m so thankful for her help in getting my little one and me off to a great start.”
- Adina R.

“If you’re experiencing any issues or just feel like you could use a little extra support, you will not regret reaching out to Ellen!”
- Sharon S.
