My name is Andrea Levesque and I am an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) with over 10 years of experience working with mamas and babies. A love of all things pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding came from having my two sons. Helping mamas and babies is truly a passion. During my first ever consult where I shadowed a certified lactation consultant, that mentor said to me, "I feel that you have a calling in this field." I couldn't agree more. It is my honor to help parents reach their infant feeding goals, whatever they may be.
"Unfortunately, breast feeding was anything but natural for me. I struggled immediately with an inadequate milk supply, which caused me a great deal of anxiety. With Andrea's help I was better able to understand how much milk my baby was getting and strategies to increase my supply. She was informative, calm and empathetic. I am so thankful to have had Andrea’s support to navigate those difficult early days and months of breast feeding."

"When my son was born I thought breastfeeding would be a breeze as it was with my daughter. After struggling to get him to latch I saw Andrea who immediately recognized his tongue tie. After getting the tongue tie snipped, Andrea was Instrumental in helping both him and I have many months of successful breastfeeding. Andrea is knowledgeable, patient, gentle and kind. I was lucky to have had her help with all of my babies and as a result I was able to experience the wonderful bond of nursing all 3 of them."

"When I had my second baby I assumed breastfeeding would go smoothly. But when my daughter wasn’t gaining weight, and nothing I tried was working, Andrea was the key to getting back on track. Through remote video calls and a private in person visit she put together a plan and supported me along the way. But more than anything, each time I spoke to Andrea I came away feeling much more relaxed and confident that my baby and I would find a path forward that worked."
