Alex Wachelka

(She/Her) Lactation Specialist. I had a very challenging start to my breastfeeding journey. I postponed getting help because I thought what I was going through was just part of the process. After two weeks I finally sought out some help and while I didn’t feel supported by that person, they ultimately helped to find the root cause of our challenges. I was able to go on to exclusively breastfeed for 17 months. It was my experience with the support person that led me to learn more about breastfeeding and lactation and had me excited about going to school to train in lactation at 4 months postpartum. I founded Motherhood Blooms Lactation™ because I am passionate about helping others feel validated and heard during their infant feeding experience. My practice operates online and supports parents from conception to weaning.
