Carolina Pimenta, IBCLC, RN, BSN

I am an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), a Maryland Registered Nurse, a Birth Activist and a Reiki Practitioner. My language skills span English, Portuguese and Spanish.

I started my passion for breastfeeding and childbirth, while I was still in college. I love to teach prenatal breastfeeding classes for the new mothers-to-be. Thus, empowering them with knowledge.

When I started to work as Nurse, the only area that appealed to me was Maternal Child. This field is where my inner soul is.

My experience is a culmination of 8 years supporting mothers with breastfeeding services. I had also worked as a Maternal Child Health Nurse in prenatal, labor and delivery, postpartum and nursery. I had assisted mothers and babies achieve their breastfeeding and childbirth goals.

As an IBCLC, I had seen more than 800 breastfeeding mother-baby in a hospital setting and private practice. I am an Aetna in-network provider. I am also working on the IBCLC license. So, more mothers will be able to receive the expert evidenced- based breastfeeding care, without cost sharing.

I have been supporting many mother-infant couplets with breastfeeding services such as:

  • Prenatal assessment and counseling.
  • Postnatal breastfeeding assessment and counseling;
  • Positioning and latch of an infant;
  • Prevention and management of maternal concerns such as: breast pain and engorgement, mastitis, thrush, flat and inverted nipples, maternal breast surgery.
  • Establishing and increasing milk production;
  • Induced lactation and re-lactation
  • Premature and near term infants;
  • Infants with physical disabilities such as cleft lip palate; tongue-tie and lip-tie and other oral dysfunction.
  • Suck difficulties that interfere with breastfeeding;
  • Assisted mothers to build confidence to breastfeed, for as long as the dyad desired.
  • Provided supportive breastfeeding measures, when mother and baby were separated.
  • Supported mothers to meet their  breastfeeding goals.

As a mother of two kids, I really enjoyed breastfeeding my kids for more than 5 years. On my spare time, I love to practice yoga, zumba, to read, to pray and spend time with my family and friends.
