Mother's Milk LLC was founded in 2002 by Elizabeth Kehau Kealoha, Registered Nurse, International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) & Indigenous Breastfeeding Counselor (IBC). Mother's Milk LLC is located in Waimea on the Big Island of Hawai'i. With over 20 years of experience assisting families with breastfeeding, Kehau has also championed the 2nd Baby Friendly designated hospital in the State of Hawai'i.
Mother of four boys, each with a different breastfeeding story, she can relate to the challenges parents face while breastfeeding. After the birth of her 3rd son, Kehau was able to return to work at 6 weeks, care for a busy family & successfully breastfeed for two years.
Mother's Milk's mission is to offer support through education, private consultation & access to quality breastfeeding products. Our goal is for your family to have a successful breastfeeding experience that exceeds your unique expectations. We're here to help!
Preparing to breastfeed & knowing what to expect can make all the difference in a successful breastfeeding experience. A personalized one-on-one consultation has shown to increase parents sense of confidence before their little bundle arrives.
Usually a problem-based visit for sore nipples, low milk supply, plugged ducts, poor baby weight gain & more. For those who are breastfeeding well, it is reassuring to know that baby has gained weight. It is invaluable to get help early on so the necessary adjustments can be made for the comfort of mom & continuation of breastfeeding for baby.
Returning to work & continuing to breastfeed can be challenging. Topics include bottle training, pumping & storing, knowing how much milk your baby will need & more.
