Hi, I'm Kristi Cortina

International Board Certified Lactation Consultant

I have been helping families achieve their infant feeding goals since 2019 when I embarked on my own journey with my daughter. I had no idea what I was doing when it came to breastfeeding! I met with a lactation consultant in the hospital and she asked me one question and then I never saw her again. I knew then that I never wanted anyone else to experience this "help". I then pursued my IBCLC and started my IBCLC journey in 2020. I completed all of my requirements to become an IBCLC and became certified in 2023. I want to help change the way the world views breastfeeding and I want to empower a new generation of breastfeeding women!


Lactation Counsultant for Phoenix Area Families

I believe that all infant feeding journeys are important and all parents deserve to be empowered, supported and heard. Instilling confidence in oneself is a crucial part to having a successful journey. I cannot bottle up confidence and give it to you, but I can help build your confidence and offer guidance to help you make the best choice for yourself and your family.


One of my goals is to empower parents through building confidence and education while striving to share evidence-based information that is encouraging and non-judgmental. You are worthy and capable of a breastfeeding journey that you are proud of.


Optimizing support for breastfeeding/chestfeeding families should begin as early as pregnancy and continue through postpartum and beyond. The decision to breastfeed can increase life-long positive impacts on the nursing parent and the baby.


Providing evidence-based information can help parents make better-informed choices about infant feeding for their unique family dynamic. I also provide unbiased support throughout the entire infant feeding journey and will tailor all support and education as it continuously changes.
