Hi! I'm Heather Martin, mom of 7 and a local International Board Certified Lactation Consultant or IBCLC.
My children are 6.9,9,11,14, 18 and 21. 5 girls and 2 boys means we have a fair mix of glitter and dirt/sweat in the house at all times.
Our girls are active with their Girl Scout troop and our oldest son is a gymnast. Our youngest son like many is an enthusiast of all things Lego, Dino or Star Wars.
Our twins were a complete surprise-which continues to happen frequently as life with twins does.
We've lived in Fort Worth for 20 years, the longest my husband, Jason, or I have ever lived anywhere.
We are both military "brats" and the Marine Corps brought us to Fort Worth- we thought we'd go home to Oklahoma but love it here!
I started in the breastfeeding world through La Leche League, first attending meetings and then became a group leader in 2007.
I loved helping families meet their feeding goals and realized that I could continue doing so as an IBCLC. In 2011, I sat my first boards and was certified and recertified in September of 2021.
Today I serve families across the south Fort Worth area and Aledo.
When not working with families, I enjoy gardening, reading or finding new, local adventures with our kids.
