I am Nicole McCarthy and I am an Active Duty Air Force spouse. I am a mother to a wonderful baby girl who is turning one in September! I am also a Certified Breastfeeding Specialist (CBS) and a Public Health professional.
Breastfeeding was far from easy for us in the beginning. I felt like I was on a roller coaster ride. If it wasn’t for the support I received, I wouldn’t have been able to continue. Once we ironed out the kinks, breastfeeding because blissful.
The more I learned and read about breastfeeding, the more fascinated I became. I knew this was my path and I thank my daughter for putting my on it. My heart is full of such passion to help mamas reach their breastfeeding goals. In 2020 I became a Certified Breastfeeding Specialist, completing 90 hours of lactation education. I am currently on the path to complete my requirements to pass my IBCLC exam.
Fun Fact: I love to be outdoors. Going for walks, bike rides, or just sitting outside makes me feel at peace!
Favorite TV Show: This is tough! I don’t really want TV. I’d rather be outside! I do love most shows on TLC though.
