Lactation Consultation

In-Home Lactation Consultation

   Nurtured Foundation is happy to be able to provide in-home lactation consultation to our families in need of such vital support! Read below to learn about lactation consultant Briana Violand and her passion for helping to strengthen the bond between mothers and their babies through the loving act of breastfeeding!

Briana Violand, BBA, IBCLC

After Briana Violand obtained her Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Tiffin University in 2006, she quickly found that it was not her passion.  It wasn’t until she got married and started a family, however, that she realized what made her whole. With three children, 7 years of personal breastfeeding experience, and countless hours of education and training, Briana officially became an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC)!

Briana finds true joy in helping people. And it is her honor and privilege to be a part of some of the most precious moments in a family’s life.  Her goals are to educate, share “evidence-based” knowledge, and help each family reach their own personal breastfeeding goals.

Breastfeeding is natural and has numerous benefits to both mother and baby, but it is not always easy. Briana has helped mothers with proper breastfeeding management, latching, positioning, engorgement, oversupply, low supply, plugged ducts, ankyloglossia (tongue-tie), pumping, slow weight gain, IGT and more.

Bringing home a new baby can be stressful at times, but breastfeeding doesn’t have to be. Briana can help!  She supports clients in the Cleveland area and surrounding cities within a 50-mile radius of 44001. (*Visits outside this radius available for an extra fee.)
