Founder of milkology®
Hi, I'm Stacey!
I entered the magical world of motherhood back in 2011 with my daughter Sam.
5 years later I had twins(!!) and also an epiphany that completely flipped how I view breastfeeding and changed the entire course of my life!
Here’s how it all unfolded…
I started a business in 2016 - a lactation cookie* mix business.
*Lactation cookies contain a trio of "galactagogues" - a super fancy word for foods that promote lactation.
I was over-the-moon excited because I KNEW I had an awesome product!
They helped me make more milk when I was breastfeeding my twins AND they're yummy. (double-win!)
But shortly AFTER I started to see the orders roll in, I got a BIG reality check...
A lot any moms were absolutely TERRIFIED that they weren’t making enough milk. And they were coming to me one after another looking to my cookies to SAVE their milk supply.
Now, my cookies ARE good! And they can definitely increase your output a bit.
But in no way can a cookie, or ANYTHING really, help a tanking milk supply except by adding more breastfeeding and pumping sessions (& fixing the root of the problem if there is one).
But many moms didn’t realize that and looked to my cookies to save them.
I was troubled. I ended up feeling like I wasn’t providing everyone what they ACTUALLY needed.
What they NEEDED was practical advice and solid info…
I had a GIANT epiphany.
I have a Masters degree in teaching. I breastfed and pumped for all 3 of my kids until they were toddlers… why couldn’t I teach moms about all this?!
So I set out on a new path...
I created Milkology®.
I became a Certified Lactation Educator & brought the brand to life in 2017.
I truly believe every mom deserves a chance to reach their personal lactation goals.
Now I'm here to be YOUR guide.
And I couldn't be happier that my path led me to you! :)
When I’m not creating new lactation content, you can find me chasing my kids around looking for adventure, sneaking some chocolate from the pantry, listening to NPR, or practicing Buti Yoga!
… and I still sell lactation cookie mixes on the side! I know I'm biased but they're SO good (a family oatmeal cookie recipe). The galactagogues they contain are oats, flax seed, and brewers yeast. USE THE CODE MILKOLOGY TO GET $3 OFF OFF YOUR ORDER. GET SOME COOKIES!
