This joint venture in the world of Lactation and Childbirth has been a long time coming. This is a collaboration of efforts by a small group of International Board Certified Lactation Consultants based in San Antonio, Texas. Each of us bring our own set of skills to the table and to our Clients.
Tina Castellanos, IBCLC, RLC, started as a La Leche League Leader in 1999. She worked with La Leche League in a number of areas including Co-Coordinating the LLL of Texas State Conference in 2006. She continues to volunteer with LLL and is a Delegate to the LLLUSA Council. Tina eventually sat for the IBCLC exam in 2011 and has been in private practice ever since with her former company, The Nurtured Center.
Ginger Chun, IBCLC, RLC, also entered the world of Lactation via La Leche League. She became a Leader in 2006 and has led groups in several countries where her family has been stationed with the U.S. Army. Ginger also sat for the IBCLC exam in 2011 and started off working alongside Tina before being transferred to South Korea for two years. During her time in South Korea Ginger was able to work in the military hospital assisting new mothers and babies. She gained a large amount of knowledge working with NICU babies as well as babies in "regular" situations.
Laura Gruber, IBCLC, RLC, began her career in 2010 with Women, Infants and Children (WIC) as a Peer Counselor. She became very passionate about the world of Lactation and went on to work for two hospital systems in San Antonio as an IBCLC. During that time she learned so much about the breastfeeding dyad working with brand new babies, NICU families and in the out-patient setting. Laura went on to open her own Lactation business aptly named Breastfeeding Housecalls.
Combined we bring 28 years of experience working in Lactation to our City. We are so excited to be working together to build a strong breastfeeding community in the city of San Antonio.
