Alura Hirsch, IBCLC
Alura is a Las Vegas native. She is a mother of two beautiful daughters, both of whom she breastfed for over a year. Her love for breastfeeding started when her niece was born 18 years ago. Alura's sister was her role model, breastfeeding both of her children - she normalized breastfeeding for Alura.
Alura attended many years of college studying biology, and it was there that she attained her passion for science. After having two children she wanted to join her two passions, breastfeeding and biology. That path led her to become a Lactation Consultant.
She started her training through Breastfeeding USA where she became a counselor in March 2017. Following that she became a Certified Lactation Counselor through Healthy Children in April 2017. and continued to become an Advanced Lactation Consultant in June 2017. Passing those exams was just the first step into her lactation journey. In June 2019, Alura became an IBCLC, which is considered the gold standard certification for lactation consulting.
Alura is TOTS trained and TummyTime!™ certified. She enjoys staying up to date on the newest research for breastfeeding support. Her number one goal is to help mothers succeed in meeting their goals in their breastfeeding journey.
