Rachael Birkenhauer, Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) and Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC.)
I opened my private practice in 2015 in efforts to expand breastfeeding education and care in Eastern North Carolina.
I offer prenatal classes and individual consultations with an emphasis on continuity of care between providers. I have done extensive workshops and hands-on clinical training in the care and assessment of tongue and lip ties and frenectomy aftercare.
I have two kids, 7 and 9, both of which I breastfed. On the weekends I like to pretend that I have a green thumb, collect shells on the beach. I enjoy painting or anything that makes me feel creative.
