Chanelle is a stay at home wife and mom of two. After facing many challenges while breastfeeding her son for a year, including a less than stellar lactation consultant experience, an overactive letdown, and milk overflowing with lipase, she was determined to have a different experience with her daughter.
After googling more than google could handle and living part time on breastfeeding websites like Kelly-Mom, she realized with her second child, knowledge is power. With this newfound power she was able to nurse and pump for her daughter for 15 months. Through her experiences with breastfeeding, she became the go-to expert in her group, which led to the realization that perhaps lactation consulting and helping Black breastfeeding families could be a career. She was a guest on the Lactation Business Coaching Podcast here.
This “Titty Tech™ ” can be found operating her private practice, Hey Mama Lactation and Perinatal Care, in Southern New Jersey. She is also a member of the New Jersey Breastfeeding Coalition, La Leche League, and a WIC breastfeeding peer counselor. When she’s not talking boobs, babies, and breastmilk, she enjoys baking and binge watching Hulu and Netflix.
