Join us in welcoming our newest Program Sponsor Hey Mama Lactation and Perinatal Care!
Hey Mama Lactation and Perinatal Care is owned and operated by Chanelle Andrews, an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) and educator hailing from Camden, NJ. She is, at her core, an avid supporter of parents and communities. Chanelle, or Chelly as she is affectionately known, has a passion for the “aha!” moments and providing people with the education and information they need to make the best decisions for their families and their goals. Chelly spends her time volunteering for local community breastfeeding organizations, counseling families about breast and chest-feeding, and studying for her upcoming IBLCE exam. Her Bachelor of Science degrees in education and writing arts come in handy, particularly when she engages in building a strong foundation for individuals, community organizations, and professional organizations to succeed.
As a Program Sponsor, Chelly and her team will provide healthy and supportive lactation education and encouragement for loss families experiencing stillbirth and neonatal loss in our nest. Additionally, they will provide educational support for the families in our nest, pregnant after loss. Because the families in our nest have experienced birth trauma and perinatal loss, there is complex and compounded grief that can complicate lactation and bonding in future pregnancies.
We are so grateful to celebrate and support our new partnership in the south Jersey and Philadelphia Metro region , especially during Breastfeeding Awareness Month! They are also located in Gloucester Township/Blackwood so don't be surprised if you see Chelly pop up at events around the nest!
