My name is Lydia O. Boyd and I am an experienced breastfeeding mother who now works with families who are expecting or are currently breastfeeding. Breastfeeding for me started with the delivery of my one and only son at 28 weeks gestation on a Sunday afternoon in 1996. I have used every gadget that was available to me at that time to get my milk into my precious miracle baby. I have experienced the highs and the lows of breastfeeding from being concerned about my milk supply and overcoming them with the help of herbal supplements to having latch problems and being told that my milk was not enough for my baby and his unique needs; which I now know was not correct. Now on this side of motherhood, I have dedicated my life to supporting families who are considering breastfeeding or are breastfeeding their babies. I am an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), Certified Lactation Educator (CLE), Breastfeeding Peer Counselor (BPC), and Doula with multiple years of experience in supporting breastfeeding families.
My goal is to provide a space to discuss your questions and concerns about breastfeeding and birth while providing you with relevant and technically sound information, education, and support while accompanying you through your journey of birthing and feeding your genius baby with the best milk in town!
How can you receive support from Lydia? Understanding that families are busy with work, family obligations, relationship building, etc. my support has several virtual options to meet your schedule. Conference calls, video chatting, text messaging, social media, emails, newsletters, and in-person support are ways that my families will connect with me and receive needed support and information.

The Awesome Breastfeeders Newsletter is one of the first steps in receiving breastfeeding information. You can sign up today by clicking HERE. You will receive periodic updates and offers directly to your inbox. Awesome Breastfeeders will receive priority notification of these offerings before they are shared publicly.
I look forward to working with you, your family, and your genius baby. Let’s get our babies fed on the Best Milk in Town!
