Kira Kim is an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) in private practice serving families on the North Shore of MA. She holds a Bachelor's Degree in Sociology and Public health and has studied out-of-hospital based midwifery care through Mercy in Action and the Massachusetts Midwives Alliance.
Marrying her love of birth with lactation, her clinical interest is in the influence of fetal positioning during labor and birth on early breastfeeding success. In addition to providing in-home lactation care, she teaches prenatal breastfeeding for parents, breastfeeding basics classes to doulas and midwives, and runs a small group for female identifying individuals on the topic of emotional blocks to sexual satisfaction.
When she is not immersed in all things lactation, she volunteers her time to causes related to reproductive justice as well as those that serve to increase diversity in the lactation field. Whether she is helping new families navigate the early days or teaching birthworkers and parents, she is passionate about connecting with other people and encouraging them to spread their knowledge to others.
She lives by the beach with her husband, their four rambunctious kids, and an old, lazy cat.
