Gemma Regan

Welcome to BLC!

This small business of connecting families to quality lactation care and birth resources has been a long-time dream of mine. A LABOR of love and hard work is now a dream come true in 2020! (I’ve been in labor at least 4 years – ouch!)

Birthing my small business might be compared to pregnancy, labor and birth. Hopes, dreams and internal movements came to life as the CREATOR of ALL LIFE inspired, gifted and encouraged me to step out in faith.

I am forever humbled by HIM, and forever grateful to all who have shared my dream and labored with me. May the GIVER of LIFE continue to bless us and the families we serve, as we continue to learn, teach and grow together.

Gemma

I first fell in love with Birth & Breastfeeding during my first Lamaze Class in 1976 as a scared expectant teenage mother. The wonder and beauty of it all drew me close to the miracle inside of me and to the Way Maker, Miracle Worker, Promise Keeper (JESUS) that I have grown to know in a personal way. Looking back now, I see how He used it all to shape my career.

I have been a LPN nurse since 1980, working in various OB, pediatrics, family medicine, hospital (labor & delivery) and office settings. A Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator and an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. .. sounds impressive ... but my favorite titles are just "Mom" and "Grammy"! I absolutely love connecting with people, especially new mommies as they step into their new role of parenting. It’s such a joy to watch a baby connect with their parents in the early days/weeks of life as they literally search and root for golden liquid food to nourish and sustain themselves!

One of my life passions is helping families get off to the very best start in their breastfeeding journey. For some moms, this journey may come with uninvited twists and turns. I can help you navigate these days that seem very challenging with skill, experience, resources, and TLC (tender loving care)!  If I’m not available we have independent contractors who are ready, willing, and MORE than able to meet with you via phone, video, or in person!
