Kari Wheeler, IBCLC
Kari is a Registered Nurse (BSN, RN) and International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), which is the highest level credential for health care professionals who specialize in the clinical management of breastfeeding.
She is a retired La Leche League International Leader and Breastfeeding USA Counselor.
Kari’s interest in helping others experience the benefits of birth and breastfeeding has also led her to additional coursework in mindfulness, self-hypnosis, and positive psychology.
Kari provides in-home lactation consultations to families who live in Boulder County and surrounding areas, including Longmont, Erie, Broomfield, and Arvada. Kari provides lactation consultations before birth to help clients prepare for breastfeeding and/or after birth to help clients overcome current lactation and breastfeeding challenges.
The care Kari provides is evidence-based, client-centered, gentle, and holistic, with a deep respect for the mother-baby bond and parental choice.
Lactation consultations are generally scheduled the same day or within 24 hours. In-home means your home, so there is no need to travel with your newborn or even to get out of your pajamas! Kari can also see clients at the Louisville Family Center, upon request.
Kari is in-network with Aetna Insurance. For all other plans, payment is due at time of service, and a SuperBill is provided, which can be submitted for insurance reimbursement.
