Christine Hennes, IBCLC

If you really want to breastfeed, I know I can help you.

I have the experience, intuition and knowledge to assist you through challenging situations.

Breastfeeding my daughter long-term truly inspired me to want to give other women the skills and confidence to breastfeed their babies.

My journey began in 1989 teaching childbirth classes. During the postpartum class, I listened to how women had more difficulty with breastfeeding than giving birth. This inspired me to go back to school and in 1999, I became a Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). That year I was assisting new mothers with bedside one-on-one breastfeeding care. I came to realize that many women were leaving the hospital in need of more help. Serenity Breastfeeding was created to provide the continued assistance most women desire.

My combined experience in both hospital and private practice, has allowed me to help over 15,000 women reach their personal goals. I am confident that with guided instruction and caring support, you can have a wonderful experience feeding your baby.
