Jennifer is a former fashion model and studied French and French literature at L’Université Paris-Sorbonne in Paris, France, where she lived for six years. Her passion for breastfeeding began in 1998 with the birth of her first son in Paris and followed her to New Jersey where her second son was born with many difficulties latching and coordinating suckling. Her search to understand and support her son’s particular breastfeeding challenges led to her interest in neonatal sensory processing and neurobehavioral approaches to breastfeeding. Her expertise in skin-to-skin contact and kangaroo care is frequently called upon within the lactation community.
Jennifer’s mission is to encourage, educate, and empower mothers and families through breastfeeding. She lives in Jersey City, NJ, with her husband, two breastfed boys and their Golden Retriever, Amber. For more information, please visit her website at www.MahalaMom.com.
