Hello, and welcome to newday lactation services! My name is Dalaney Young. My philosophy is that the relationship between mother and baby is truly unique, filled with ups, downs and everything in between. My goal is to help moms meet their breastfeeding goals whether the goal is for 3 weeks 3 months or 3 years, breastfeeding is a journey and I am happy to help you tackle any bumps along the way! I believe that parenting is not a cookie cutter one size fits all endeavor, it requires thinking outside of the box and realizing what works best for you. While you may hear and read things that work for some, it may not always work for you and your family. As a mother of five I can relate to the ups and downs of breastfeeding and parenting and I am so happy to be able to share my knowledge and education and make a plan that is right for you.
I have my Bachelors degree in Maternal and Child Health with an emphasis in Human Milk and Lactation Consulting. Through my degree and extensive clinical experience I was able to sit for the board exam and get credentialed as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). I currently sit as Co-Chair of the Virginia Breastfeeding Coalition and hold my Basic Life Support CPR including infant (BLS) certificate. I have been helping mama and babies overcome breastfeeding challenges for over 10 years and truly love working with families to ensure they feel confident in their parenting and feeding choices so they can enjoy each day as a new day!
Congratulations on your newest addition!
