Hi, My name is LaShanna Kimmons and I provide In-Home and Virtual Visits. I have over 16 years experience helping mothers breastfeed. I’m a mother of 4 beautiful children. My interest in lactation came about in 2004 when my 17 year old was born at 26 weeks gestation. That experience of expressing breast milk for my then NICU baby sent me on a path of becoming a Breastfeeding Peer Counselor and then an IBCLC.
With my experience of breastfeeding a preterm, late preterm and full term babies, I know there can be struggles because I too struggled in the beginning but went on to successfully meet my breastfeeding goals. It will be my honor to help you reach your breastfeeding goal.

When I come to you for in home lactation consulting, I will spend about an hour and a half working with you and your baby.

I’m very happy with the lactation assistance I received. I have nursed multiple children in the last 10 years with the information that I have received from Shanna. She’s professional, knowledgeable, and on time. She is my first resource anytime I have a question that is related to breast-feeding. I highly recommend Kimmons Lactation Services.
