My Approach

Evidence based care combines with compassion and love

 

Hi! My name is Christen R Bettis. I am a mother to a lovely young lady. Through the journey of
pregnancy, child bearing, and breastfeeding my faith was ignited! This led me down the
wonderful and mysterious world of women’s services. My journey began in 2011 when I became
a licensed massage therapist, certified in pregnancy massage and labor support. I then began
to ascend the path towards becoming a lactation consultant. In 2017, I gratefully and humbly
achieved International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) status. Since then I have had the
privilege and honor of assisting hundreds of families in meeting their infant feeding and
breastfeeding goals.

 

As a Lactation Consultant and Body Worker my goal is to provide evidence based information
combined with compassion and love to help determine and meet your feeding needs and goals.

 

I especially enjoy the opportunity, when possible, to meet prenatally to get to know one another,
answer questions, and do preliminary exam and paper work in order to prepare for your big day.
Regardless of the timing of our visit, I desire to come into your feeding routine with fresh eyes
and a strategic approach to help make a feeding plan that works for you and your family. I
desire to best serve the health and vitality of your little one(s) and yourself as momma. I will
always uphold your providers recommendations, and we will work together around any and all
circumstances to make a plan that works for you.


These are your goals, and I am here to help you meet them through support and education.
Whether things are going great and you just have questions or there's still some work to do
before things level out, I am here for you. Breastfeeding can come with a variety of challenges
and I want to walk through them with you. I’m looking forward to meeting with you soon! :)

Wife & Mother

My process of becoming a mom wasn’t easy. Neither of my children came into this world without complication. It was this experience that fueled my desire to do something more for mothers.
