Your Care Team
Allison Alexander, LPN, IBCLC
International Board Certified Lactation Consultant
Allison Alexander (she/her) is a nurse, Internationally Board Certified Lactation Consultant, wife, and mother of two living and working on stolen land in Michigan, USA. After struggling to breastfeed her first child, she felt the depression and isolation that comes with needing help but not knowing where to turn. While providing care and education in a pediatric office setting, she also saw the struggles of parents who came in having difficulty feeding their babies and the lack of compassionate, evidence-based support they received.
Some found ways to make it work, but many more gave up on their goals. Convinced there had to be a better way, Allison began her journey to become an IBCLC to make sure that every family had the support they needed to be successful, the support she wished she’d had as a new parent. She has been working with families for 9 years and has helped countless parents feel confident and successful. She went on to breastfeed her second child into toddlerhood. She specializes in oral motor function, milk supply concerns, and slow weight gain.
Kaitlyn Sagritalo, CLC
Certified Lactation Counselor
Kaitlyn Sagritalo has worked in healthcare for a total of over 9 years and is a Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC) with over a year of experience in lactation. She is currently completing the hours required to become an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) and expects to sit for the exam in Spring of 2022.
Kaitlyn became a first-time mom in 2018. In her breastfeeding journey with her son, they dealt with severe skin infections, rare food allergies, and difficulty finding providers that knew how to help. Thanks to her prenatal education and amazing support from a local LC, she was able to successfully breastfeed into toddlerhood (2+ years strong!). She knew her story of adequate education and support were unfortunately rare, so she decided to start her journey towards becoming an IBCLC.
