AS AN IBCLC®, KRISTIAN BILLIOT HAS A UNIQUE BODY OF KNOWLEDGE AND SKILL TO PROVIDE BREASTFEEDING AND LACTATION CARE.
Kristian Billiot, IBCLC, RLC
Hi! I am the proud owner of Northshore Lactation Connections. My passion for helping breastfeeding mothers was born through La Leche League. My local leader and the many friends I made through my La Leche League group, helped me through many breastfeeding challenges, such as relactation and how to parent a colicky infant. I became an accredited La Leche League Leader so that I could help moms and babies the same way I was helped. If it weren't for La Leche League my breastfeeding journey would have ended much sooner. I'm so very thankful I was able to nurse my kiddos until they self weaned.
I became an IBCLC so that I could further my education into the clinical side of lactation and help breastfeeding dyads at a deeper level. I feel that my dual roles of IBCLC and La Leche League Leader gives me a unique blend of mom-to-mom support and clinical lactation knowledge. I chose to go into private practice so that I can spend plenty of time with my clients, not be rushed, and have time for thorough follow-up.
My devout husband and I will celebrate 23 years of marriage this year. We have three teenagers who have nick-named me the 'boob master' and keep us on our 'parenting toes.'
Nicole Sonier, RN, CBS
I am Nicole and my passion is your boobs and babies. I am a mama of 5, 2 are biological and 3 are fosters. I graduated from Charity Nursing School in 2009 and lactation has always been my thing. I love helping my mamas meet their breastfeeding goals. I am also a birth assistant with the Northshore Natural Birthhouse. I met Kristian, my rock star boss, years ago at a Le Leche group and we completely hit it off. We make a great team, offering our mamas two amazing perspectives for each unique breastfeeding dilemma.
