Inspired by her own breastfeeding struggles, Erin Valasek, RN, IBCLC, a certified lactation consultant at Methodist Women's Hospital, has a passion for instilling confidence in new mothers.

“There’s something about helping someone through it,” she said. “Because it’s hard! Breastfeeding is hard work. And letting them know that, ‘Hey, you’re going to do this. You’re going to get it.’ That’s what I love about my job.”
