Hi, my name is Stephanie Bauer. I am a Registered Nurse (RN) and International Breastfeeding Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). I have been a RN since 1997, and spent over eleven years working in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Royal Oak Beaumont Hospital. Working with some of the most critically ill newborns, who benefited so much from their mother’s milk and breastfeeding, inspired me to learn more. I have witnessed the numerous benefits of breast milk in the NICU and with my own three children, Evan (13 years) and Camden (5 years) and Seraphina (2 years). I wholeheartedly believe that breast milk and breastfeeding is the superior nutritional choice for babies. My goal is to create a warm and comfortable environment for mothers to gain support, knowledge and resources. In doing so, I hope to help mothers and their families understand and embrace the benefits of breastfeeding.
