portrait of Rebecca Cappello“As a dietitian, I’ve always been a passionate breastfeeding supporter, and I looked forward to nursing my own children. When my first child was born, however, my experience was nothing like what I had envisioned. Dealing with a tongue tie, painful nursing, and low supply, my breastfeeding journey involved more tears and more pumping than I ever expected!
Thanks to an amazing team, we eventually got things back I track and I was finally able to enjoy breastfeeding. I knew I wanted to be able to help other moms with their breastfeeding goals. Several years later, I’ve nursed 4 babies with tongue tie and am now an IBCLC.  I’m thrilled to be able to help moms and babies at the Lactation Foundation.”

Rebecca is a mom of four. She loves food, and enjoys teaching her daughters to cook.
