About: Heather Shabestari, BS, IBCLC, CLEC
Heather Shabestari is an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. Her training was completed through University of California, San Diego's lactation consultant program and an 8 month internship at San Diego Kaiser Permanente's outpatient lactation department. Her passion for helping families achieve their breastfeeding goals is the reason why Breastfeeding Consultants of San Diego, LLC came to fruition. Giving mothers the most current evidence based research in breastfeeding education and management is powerful and enlightening to many who are struggling to achieve a positive breastfeeding experience. Hope, encouragement, guidance, laughter, skill and a true member of your team is what Heather can offer families on their breastfeeding journey.
Heather grew up in San Diego and was lucky enough to move back to her hometown in 2006 with her husband and two children. She has spent many years volunteering her time to non-profit organizations which enhance the educational experiences of primary grade children. Her educational background includes a degree from the University of California - Irvine in Biological Sciences and is a Certified Lactation Educator Counselor as well. Her quest for weaving her science background with helping others is one of the reasons she became an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. Heather's own breastfeeding experience was troubled and she was confronted with an array of breastfeeding problems, but luckily with the help of a patient lactation consultant she was able to turn a hard and painful breastfeeding experience into a wonderful memory.
Now, Heather helps families with their own breastfeeding challenges and guides them on their own personal breastfeeding journeys. She can help you with many breastfeeding challenges such as: low milk supply, milk blisters, recurrent mastitis, plugged ducts, breastfeeding positions, returning to work and pumping, pain while nursing, supplemental nursing, inducing lactation, returning back to breastfeeding, tongue tie evaluation, latching issues, etc.
