Lactation Consultations with Jillian Simon RM IBCLC...The Milk Maven.
Jillian is an incredible Lactation Consultant who has helped hundreds of families over the past 15 years. She developed a special interest in lactation medicine when she found that so many people were struggling with their infant feeding goals in her Midwifery practice.
"My role as a Lactation Consultant is to help parents develop a deeply-connected, nurturing bond with their baby. I offer non-judgemental support to help families meet their goals for infant feeding. I come alongside a family as a compassionate guide to offer information, assistance and experience as they navigate their parenting journey." -Jillian Simon, RM IBCLC

Registered Midwife + IBCLC
I decided to become a registered midwife after I experienced midwifery care as a mother. I was amazed at how my midwives supported and empowered me in my journey to motherhood. I feel that every pregnant person deserves the opportunity to make informed choices about their pregnancy and birth.
I studied midwifery in the Faculty of Medicine at UBC. I have been working in the Richmond and Delta areas since I graduated. In 2015 I completed board certification for Lactation Consultation with IBLCE and also completed specialized certification to be the surgical assist at cesarean sections.
Breast/chestfeeding support is one of my areas of interest and experience. I enjoy helping new families as they navigate the exciting and sometimes challenging early days with a new baby and recognize the importance of postnatal support for breastfeeding to be successful.
I’ve been living and raising my family in Richmond since 2003. I’m so pleased to be working with families in my own community.
Coffee or tea?

Favourite thing about Midwifery:
