Evonne is board certified to help struggling breastfeeding parents’ find peace
Blunt Blowin’ Mama chats with Evonne Smith, IBCLC, an expert lactation consultant, sleep consultant, and baby whisperer. As a newborn care specialist, Evonne has extensive experience in helping new parents tackle one of the most stressful parts of parenthood: feeding their babies. She helps parents conquer their breastfeeding challenges without judgement and believes a happy and healthy parent is best — especially, when it comes to breastfeeding.
Parents should ask questions because an informed parent is a confident parent
From how much THC actually gets to baby through the breast milk to how to talk to family who isn’t supportive of breastfeeding to the effects of cannabis on milk supply, Evonne provides answers. She’s honest, real and informative.
It is important to note that there is currently no definitive answer regarding questions around the effect THC and other cannabinoids have on breastmilk from the medical community at this time. However, Evonne doesn’t shy away from open dialog and communication from parents about lifestyle choices — including their cannabis use —while assisting them on their baby feeding journey.
Evonne started her lactation practice locally in Los Angeles, California, but she also offers online assistance. She provides support to parents who can’t find a lactation consultant in their area or who may find it helpful to have virtual lactation assistance that they can reference at their own pace.
It’s why she created the “Breastfeeding in the real world” course for parents. And, lucky us: Evonne’s offering BBM listeners a special 10% off with discount code: BBM10.
