About Elevation Lactation
Elevation Lactation is committed to supporting families, and their unique and individual feeding needs, free from judgement and with compassion.
Whether you are breastfeeding, chestfeeding, pumping, using formula, are pregnant, have questions about returning to work, or have special circumstances, our inclusive approach welcomes families of any age, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, income level, marital status, etc.
Elevation Lactation is a paperless practice, enabling easy and secure communication, while staying eco-friendly and reducing waste. We strive to maintain a modern, and easily accessible interface to protect your privacy and serve you effectively. By getting some of the paperwork out of the way before our visit, we will have more time to spend on YOU during the visit. Please let us know if you have any questions about our paperless practice.
Natalie lives in Denver with her husband and three children. Her passion for breastfeeding began when her oldest daughter was born preterm. Her own struggle to breastfeed, and find adequate lactation support, led her down the path to supporting others in their breastfeeding journey. Each of her three breastfeeding experiences came with its own individual celebrations and challenges, and she truly values the unique experience of every breastfeeding family.
Natalie is an IBCLC (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant), and has a degree in Medical Anthropology from NYU. She founded the Facebook group Badass Breastfeeders of Colorado in 2012, and has enjoyed facilitating the group through its exponential growth. In addition, Natalie volunteers for a number of local and national breastfeeding organizations including Breastfeeding USA, Colorado Breastfeeding Coalition, and Special Kids, Special Care (which supports families in their transition from NICU to home).
Natalie enjoys swimming just about anywhere, cooking, and spending time with her family. Above all else, Natalie enjoys learning more about any topic that interests her - of which there are many! Her family also includes a sweet dog named Dottie, and three guinea pigs named Aspen, Maple and Willow.
