Breastfeeding questions?

How can we help?

"A newborn baby has only three demands. They are warmth in the arms of its mother, food from her breasts, and security in the knowledge of her presence. Breastfeeding satisfies all three"

My name is Kerriann and it is my goal to share and educate all my readers about the beauty of breastfeeding.

I am an Internationally Board Certified Lactation Consultant through North Georgia Breastfeeding Center (visit us on Facebook). I've learned so many wonderfully interesting and helpful new pieces of information that I would like to share with new & veteran mommies and any other readers interested in learning more about breastfeeding.

I am a mommy of two and am currently still breastfeeding my 18-month-old. It is one of the most special bonds and supreme gifts that I can give my daughter and myself. I am also a huge fan of Disney and especially mermaids, hence the website name: Milk Maid.

I hope you will enjoy following my blog and learning along with me as we embark on this wonderful journey of breastfeeding together.

Please note that all articles that are posted here are evidence-based and sources will be cited at the bottom of each article.

As long as I can remember, I have always had an amazing passion for childbirth and all that it entails. I can honestly say that the two things I wanted most in this world were to be a mom and to work with mommas and babies.  It wasn’t until the birth of my first child in 1992 at the age of 21 that I would discover just how passionate I would become about childbirth and breastfeeding. 

As I moved through the early years of my career in the maternal child health field I became increasingly fascinated with childbirth education, lactation, and nutrition, as I saw a great need for this in our community. It was then that I decided to pursue my degree in Health Psychology with a concentration in maternal –child health and nutrition education. After graduating with my bachelor’s degree in Psychology I moved forward with my certification as Doula and Childbirth Educator and Certified Lactation Counselor.
