Hey, I’m Mercedes!

I’m a mother, wife, board certified pediatric nurse practitioner (CPNP), author and certified lactation counselor (CLC).

As a new mother I had to overcome so many challenges related to breastfeeding like my son’s tongue tie diagnosis and food intolerances which led to me eliminating dairy and soy from my diet for over a year to continue breastfeeding him.

I’ve gone through many of the things that new moms face which is why it’s my mission to combine my nursing expertise with my experiences as a mom to support families with evidence-based education and resources.
