Certified Lactation Counselor

 

Family Seasons is excited to work with Certified Lactation Counsleors (CLC) as a part of our care.

CLCs are members of the health care team who can provide knowledge and counseling about optimal and sub-optimal breastfeeding. CLCs understand that breastfeeding decisions are made by the mother, who may have values and goals different from the counselor. A counseling approach is used to gather information and provide appropriate support

to the mother and her family.

CLCs work as part of the Family Seasons health care team, assuring appropriate referrals and recommendations. CLCs are qualified to provide education, counseling

and some clinical management.

CLC's  will make appropriate referrals to our IBCLC's when needed

Hello, My name is Sharina Jensen, and love living in Idaho! I wear many hats in my life and love each one of them. I am married to my sweetheart and we have 3 beautiful children and 2 dogs! I have worked with supporting families and the unique challenges that a family can face with their children since I was 17 and I have not looked back!

I am always looking for new ways to help and support those I have the opportunity to work with. It led me to Doula work and through that path and my love for breastfeeding I also continued my breastfeeding education, it is a crucial piece of the postpartum period for many breastfeeding dyads. I am a Certified Lactation Counselor, (CLC), and was certified in August 2016 and have been supporting those with breastfeeding questions, education, and concerns since that time. I love supporting those at any point in their journey from pregnancy through weaning or anywhere in between that.
