Our goal at My Baby Nurses is to provide mothers and babies with the proper instruction and support needed to successfully initiate and sustain breastfeeding within the privacy and convenience of their own home.

   I am a mother of four and breastfed all of them. My experience breastfeeding each child was different and had their unique challenges. 18 years ago, when I had my first child, I became very passionate about breastfeeding. My passion for breastfeeding led me into my nursing and lactation consulting career. For years I worked on the Mom/Baby unit at one of the busiest and oldest hospitals in Milwaukee. It had an average of about 400 baby deliveries a month, more than ten per day! One of the most rewarding areas of my shift was working with the new moms and babies and helping them experience the amazing bond of breastfeeding. I don’t think I can put into words the pleasure I would feel when a new mother or father thanked me for my patience and knowledge while guiding them through their breastfeeding issues. I decided to start this company because this is truly what I was meant to do. Every mother should have the opportunity to breastfeed their baby successfully.
