About Sheree

My name is Sheree Jernigan and I am a registered nurse and an international board certified lactation consultant. I have been working with mothers and their babies for over nine years. It was through my experiences with my own children that I realized just how important having a qualified, knowledgeable, and evidence based support system can be.         

When a dear friend asked me what I wanted to do with the rest of my life after my children were grown, I instantly replied that I wanted to be a lactation consultant.

After over 20 years as a stay at home mom, I returned to college, was accepted into nursing school, became a registered nurse who garnered  over 1000 hours working with mothers and babies plus additional education hours in this field for an IBCLE certification. 

My philosophy is that the best way to ensure a bright future for our children is to provide for them every advantage possible, including all of the amazing benefits of breastfeeding.

 

For many women breastfeeding a can be a challenge, but together I believe we can discover practices that will help you succeed in your breastfeeding goals.

Services

Home Visits

We can visit you in the comfort of your home.

Your first home visits take from

2 to 3 hours. 

  • Discuss any difficulties that you are having while breastfeeding

  • Conduct an assessment of your baby to identify potential causes of these difficulties

  • Review techniques that will optimize feedings while working to eliminate pain and other issues

  • Implement those techniques while observing a feeding to ensure that any new breastfeeding techniques are understood, and, more importantly, works toward a solution for you and your baby.

  • Review the results of the feeding by determining your comfort level and weighing your baby to measure transfer ofmilk

  • Discuss and advise whether or not additional consultations will be needed.

Lactation Consultant

Sheree: 

"I was a very young mother, an average aged mother and a mother of "advanced maternal age". And thru it all, I had no one to support my breastfeeding journey. I felt like the Goldilocks of lactation. I experienced over supply, under supply and a supply that was "just right"! I also had 3 babies with tethered oral tissue making for months of discomfort and frustration. I have heard many new grandmothers say, "I wish I would have had someone like you when I was breastfeeding". I always reply, "me too". So now I am here for you".

 

Phone Consultations

If you feel that your issues can be addressed with a phone call, I am here to help. Phone consultations of 30, 45 and 60 minuites  are available. 

From this we can assess if an indepth, hands-on approach is needed to reach your breastfeeding goals. 

 

Testimonials

After having successfully breastfed my first child, it didn’t occur to me that I would have trouble in this area with my second. I was so wrong! A bad latch and excruciating pain left me feeling so desperate for help and ready to quit. One session changed the game for us completely! I was able to get back on track and was even able to face a bad case of mastitis, something that would have totally defeated me before the consultation. This was one of the best decisions I made for baby and I because we are going strong with ease now!!!
