Lori Theisen


After her son was born and admitted into the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and experiencing feeding challenges, she decided to become a registered nurse and an International Board-Certified Lactation Consultant to help other families in ways that she was helped, and especially in the ways that she was not supported."It's such an honor to be able to hold space for families during such a sensitive and intimate time. " She has served over twenty-five hundred families so far in her career. "I love educating, empowering and supporting families during their unique feeding journey. There are many ways to feed your baby and no wrong way to do it."
