Renee Beebe, M.Ed., IBCLC
Lactation Consultant, Postpartum Doula
Our lactation consultant, Renee Beebe, has been helping women breastfeed for over 20 years. During that time she has volunteered as a La Leche League Leader, taught hospital-based and private breastfeeding classes, worked as a postpartum doula, and breastfed 2 children. In 1997 she was certified as a lactation consultant and started her business, The Second 9 Months, in Seattle, WA. Doctors, midwives, doulas and childbirth educators regularly call on her to help their patients and clients. You don’t have to live in Seattle, however, to receive expert guidance from our lactation consultant. Renee is available for phone consultations for moms anywhere. You may reach her at http://www.second9months.com/. Send her an email and she’ll call you the same day to set up a “meeting.” She will help you troubleshoot any challenges you’re experiencing, from sore nipples to milk production. She can also develop a customized plan to help you return to the workforce while still providing milk for your baby.
