BScN, RPN, IBCLC

Rupinder is an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), RPN, and BScN providing personalized breastfeeding support and education in the Kitchener-Waterloo, Guelph and surrounding areas.

Since the beginning of her nursing career she has had a passion in caring for mothers and their babies. While working in primary health care she noticed a growing need for breastfeeding education among expecting, new, and experienced mothers. This is where my drive to empower mothers began.

She aspires to help mothers gain the confidence to breastfeed comfortably and enjoyably. When breastfeeding her son, she was able to see first hand how fulfilling, but at times difficult this experience can be. It wasn't until she had connected with a Lactation Consultant that she was truly able to enjoy this experience and feel like a confident mother.

Let's be honest, breastfeeding can be tricky and she is here to give you the support and confidence to OWN it.

Just like every baby deserves the best nutrition and care from day one, every mother deserves the best support and education to help reach her breastfeeding and parenting goals.

She can't wait to help you succeed in reaching your goals!
