Breastfeeding Advocate provides your care

Melinda Hoskins has been a breastfeeding advocate for most of her life! Three breastfeeding daughters and years of answering questions for others laid a strong foundation.

In 1998 Melinda decided to pursue International Board Certification as a Lactation Consultant. In 1999 she was awarded the title IBCLC through the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners, the gold standard in confirming competence in breastfeeding support.

Since then she has been active with the Nevada Breastfeeding Taskforce which transformed into the Nevada Breastfeeding Coalition some years back.
