My breastfeeding experience was much more challenging than I could have imagined. I often wondered why it wasn’t coming naturally to me. That is until I met Anjelica Malone.

Anjelica is a Lactation Coach who is redefining the way we support breastfeeding women. Her views are like nothing I’ve ever heard or seen. She calls herself a coach because she doesn’t see the real value in consulting. She believes that women need help through their entire journey from latching and scheduling to going back to work, to traveling and eventually weaning. She believes that women need someone to turn to for all of their ups and downs, not just in the beginning.

When I first spoke to Anjelica, she immediately made me feel at ease. She explained to me that everything I was experiencing was completely normal and that many women struggle with similar things, we just don’t hear about it that often.

Anjelica and her family

Anjelica and her family

I believe Anjelica is a visionary in her field. She’s not afraid to challenge how lactation has been approached in the past and wants to create a lactation structure that will benefit women in this day and age.

Another thing that I love about Anjelica is that she’s not only passionate about helping mothers to breastfeed, but also helping partners to be a part of the process as well. She believes that the more knowledge she can pass onto the partners, the better off everyone in the family will be.

It’s Anjelica’s vision, tenacity, and kindness that makes me so honored to share her words with you below.
