Hi! We are a small team of lactation professionals who strive to provide a welcoming, approachable and positive experience helping the community learn about feeding their baby and helping them feel well while doing it.
Hi! I'm Jen. For almost 20 years I have been providing compassionate and practical support for families throughout the childbearing years. My background as a massage therapist and birth and postpartum doula led me to falling in love with the art and science of breastfeeding, lactation support and the intersection of brain, body and heart. I opened my private practice, Milkwell Lactation & Feeding Solutions in 2018. I have continued my education into functional and holistic lactation care and am currently completing training towards wellness coaching to be able to support families even more.

Carolyn Kerr has been with the Milkwell Team since March 2022 and is currently waiting on the results of her lactation board exam. She is a mother to 3 and lives in Bergen County, NJ. She is currently too busy seeing clients to complete a bio for the website.

Jeannette is Milkwell’s Administrative Maven! She keeps track of appointments, ensures systems are kept running smoothly and is the friendly voice you hear when calling the office number. As a mom of two, she’s been where you are and knows how tricky new parenthood can feel (fun fact: she likes to tell people she is a former doula client of Jen's!). After devoting more than a decade to full-time motherhood, she is thrilled to utilize her skills and experience to help support new parents as they step into a new phase of life.
