NOTE: Jerri Carlisle is currently on extended leave. She is a tremendous resource for our moms, and we look forward to her return as soon as she is able.
In 2015, Shoemaker Ob/Gyn invited Jerri Carlisle, RN, IBCLC, to join our staff as a lactation consultant. We believe that the secret to success in breastfeeding is to prevent problems before they arise, and giving an expectant mother an opportunity to meet with a lactation consultant prior to the birth ensures that she has the information needed to make the best decisions for her baby.
Breastfeeding comes easily and naturally to many babies and moms, but for others it is a struggle. Jerri’s passion for assisting new mothers was fueled in part by her own struggles with breastfeeding her first child. Although the ideal is for a baby to receive breast milk exclusively, Jerri believes that breastfeeding is not an all-or-nothing proposition. She will work with mothers to assist them in providing as much breast milk as possible to their babies, with a positive outlook and without judgment.
Shoemaker Ob-Gyn encourages all expectant mothers to schedule a prenatal lactation visit with Jerri. To learn more about our lactation services, contact us by calling 251-990-1950 or using our convenient contact form.
