My name is Heather Crescimanno, and I am a Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC), ANCC accredited and TALPP certified. I trained through the Center For Breastfeeding, which is a major focus of the Healthy Children Project.

I became a CLC because I wanted to provide support to other women wanting to breastfeed, and to make that support accessible. So many women choose not to breastfeed based on fear of pain or inadequacy or the unknown, and so many breastfeeding women quit early because they don't receive the proper support.
I breastfed my own son for one year, and our journey was not without its struggles. I was sad when he weaned; but, being able to nourish my child for that long was one of the most rewarding and satisfying things I've done, and every woman should get to experience that if she chooses.
