Katie Wickham

RN BScN, IBCLC, Prenatal Educator & BLS CPR and First Aid Instructor

I have a passion for caring for families during the prenatal, postpartum, and through the early years. My career as a Registered Nurse, and my own experiences and difficulties breastfeeding my twins led me to seek my International Board Certified Lactation Consultant certification (IBCLC) to help make breastfeeding a great experience for other families.

As an IBCLC I am constantly learning and updating my knowledge to stay current with all things lactation and infant feeding- part of my certification process is to continually learn. I love discovering new areas of breastfeeding information and staying up to date on current research.

My experience as a lactation consultant in hospital gives me a strong base of knowledge of breastfeeding families in the NICU, Labour and Delivery, post-partum and paediatric areas.  Combined with my work in breastfeeding clinics, these experiences have given me a great deal of practical knowledge to help you reach your breastfeeding goals.

Working as a Registered Nurse in labour and delivery, post-partum care, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and my work as a Lactation Consultant have all furthered my passion and provided me with a unique knowledge base that I utilize while teaching prenatal classes. I have been a Prenatal Educator since 2011 and I can honestly say I enjoy each class I teach!

I have been teaching First Aid and CPR since 2004 as a training partner with Red Cross Canada, and would be happy to share my knowledge to help educate you and your family on what to do in case of an emergency with your baby. Learning CPR and first aid will help ease the worries that comes with being a parent.

I am based out of Newmarket, Ontario and will gladly travel to you in York Region. I will also travel to surrounding areas for a small travel fee.

I am thrilled to support you and your growing family, and look forward to meeting you!

Heather Higgs

Prenatal Educator, RN, BScN, IBCLC I have always had a passion for working with families and supporting them with their parenting journey. As a Registered Nurse and International Board Certified Lactation Consultant, I have had the pleasure of working with many families, and providing them with lots of teaching and support to help pave the path of their parenting journey. I have professional experience as a hospital prenatal educator, registered nurse in the neonatal intensive care unit, registered nurse in breastfeeding clinic, and parenting program educator. As a mother of three young girls, I value the importance of good support, valid information and timely access to resources when developing a sense of confidence in parenting. I look forward to helping you begin your parenting journey, build your confidence, and share in your excitement as you prepare for the arrival of your baby.

Christin Collin

RN, BScN, IBCLC My entire professional career as a Registered Nurse has been dedicated to supporting families in achieving their infant feeding goals. Shortly after I started my career as a Registered Nurse, I knew supporting families with infant feeding was my passion, and I achieved my certification as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). I have worked in the community setting servicing families in breastfeeding clinics, providing telephone support, and creating programs that help families meet their feeding goals. I am a mother to two beautiful young girls, both of which I faced feeding challenges with despite my experience and knowledge. Facing my own challenges reinforced what I had already strongly believed in which is the importance of timely, accessible, and professional support as a key component in reaching your feeding goals. With the proper supports in place, I was able to overcome my challenges and successfully breastfeed both of my girls. I am continuously increasing my knowledge and staying up to date on the latest and emerging research. I pride myself in providing the utmost quality of care to the families I service. As a Registered Nurse and an IBCLC, continuing education is an important part of my role and commitment to those I work with. I live in Newmarket, Ontario and will happily travel to your home within York Region. I will also travel to surrounding areas for a small travel fee. I very much look forward to meeting you, working with you, and supporting you to meet YOUR feeding goals.

Cherilyn Hadcock

Prenatal Educator, RN, BScN, IBCLC

Hello!  My name is Cherilyn, but most people call me Cher and I use the pronouns she/her.

I have spent my entire nursing career of over 20 years supporting individuals to build healthy families.   As a registered nurse I worked with families during pregnancy and the early days postpartum by providing health teaching, and resources to assist them on their parenting journey.

After having my first child, I was given the amazing opportunity to become a Public Health Nurse. During this time I have taught various types of prenatal classes and provided direct lactation support with families. I wanted to be even more knowledgeable for my clients, so I became in International Board-Certified Lactation Consultant in 2009.

 I enjoy teaching and mentoring colleagues, families and individuals and love getting to know people on a personal level. I am passionate about supporting families where they are at emotionally and physically and helping them meet their individual parenting and infant feeding goals. I provide prenatal and lactation care to all individuals and families in a way that is safe, supportive and inclusive.

I look forward to working with you and am honored to be part of your journey!
