International Board Cerified Lactation Consultant

Jenifer Edstrom-RN, IBCLC

 

I'm a Registered Nurse licensed in both Iowa and Illinois and an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). I have worked with mothers and infants for over 15 years in both office and hospital settings. My Specialties include Pediatrics, NICU preemies, Newborn Nursery and Postpartum Care. 


My Professional Experience and Training

I'm a member of USLA (United States Lactation Association). I'm also a member of the Quad Cities and Clinton county breastfeeding coalitions and serve on the safe infant feeding committee at Genesis Birthcenter. I'm also a guest speaker at the Group, for the prenatal group centering, representing both Genesis Birthcenter and Family Lactation Services.

At Genesis, I work as a Lactation Consultant providing care to new parents and babies. I teach the Breastfeeding Basics class and am a certified preceptor, training new and experienced nurses on breastfeeding. I am CPR, and NRP certified. I maintain my certifications by attending conferences and completing continuing education as required. I also volunteer at the local high school each semester teaching high school students about the benefits of breastfeeding. It's never too soon to start learning about breastfeeding. I never want to stop learning and sharing that knowledge with my Clients. The ongoing research findings in the world of human lactation never ceases to amaze me.


I have recently completed additional breastfeeding without birth training, to further assist...
an adoptive parent or parent-to-be
an intended parent through surrogacy
a non-birthing parent or parent-to-be partnered with a birthing parent
a foster parent
a birthing parent who is not currently nursing

My Passion and Purpose

My Passion for Breastfeeding and helping new parents stems from my own experiences with my 3 children, all breastfed exclusively. All with their own challenges. There were many times that without the support of my husband and a Lactation Consultant I would not have been able to continue. I believe the support of a spouse, friend, or partner is so crucial to our success. 

My Goal is to  serve the family as a whole. Equipping and Empowering Mothers, Helping Parents and Feeding our Babies the very best.
