Meet your Lactation Consultant
Simone Coulter, BScN, RN, IBCLC
I have had the privilege of building my career as Registered Nurse here in KW over the last 13 years. I have experience working in both the Emergency Department (ED), and for the last 5 years in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Grand River Hospital.
My personal difficulties with breastfeeding fueled my interest in understanding lactation and led me to become an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). In my role as an IBCLC at the hospital I currently assist new parents with feeding difficulties before discharge.
My work as both an RN, and IBCLC within the NICU/postpartum areas has allowed me to gain experience assisting mothers with breastfeeding their babies, whether they be preterm, late preterm, singletons or multiples.
It is truly an honor to be welcomed by families during this special and sometimes difficult time in their lives.
I look forward to meeting you and your family and helping YOU reach YOUR individual feeding goals!
