Hi there! I’m Jen Peters, MSN, RN, IBCLC and founder of Your Bestmilk. I have been a nurse for over 10 years and a lactation consultant (IBCLC) for 8 years. During these 8 years, I have worked with moms and babies during their stay on the postpartum unit, in the NICU, in outpatient clinics, and in the comfort of their own home. I'm also co-creator of Your BestFeeding, where we create personalized, in-home or virtual breastfeeding classes to teach expecting parents exactly what they need to know, how to do it, and how best to manage expectations in the early 4th trimester.
Most importantly, I'm a mom too. After seven years of motherhood I won't tell you that I have all the answers (hence my perfectly imperfect family photo that you see), but I will definitely tell you that I get it. I see too many women completely overwhelmed trying do the right thing for themselves and their baby, yet feeling like failures. There is no failing in motherhood in my book. I firmly believe that as long as you are feeding your baby and taking care of yourself, you are doing it right. Sometimes you just need a little support and guidance to help you find your BestMilk.
Hi Everyone! I’m Michelle Snyder, MS, RD, IBCLC and co-creator of Your BestFeeding. I have over 20 years’ experience as a Pediatric Dietitian and Lactation Consultant. I’ve worked postpartum, NICU and private practice. I’m so excited to be joining Jen in offering you the most comprehensive and personalized infant feeding course available. As a military spouse and working mother of four (boys), I get it! I understand the pressure that exists today for new moms. After almost 21 years of motherhood (gulp), I can tell you that babies don’t need perfection, they need sanity! What moms need most is a supportive village. Jen and I look forward to supporting you as you embark on your journey to motherhood and in helping you find your BestMilk.
