Jessica Altemara

Lactation Consultant and Doula

Jessica has been invested in looking deeper into lasting outcomes for breastfeeding challenges for over 16 years. “Medically complicated” herself, she has an appreciation for seeking answers for her favorite question: “Why?”. Her doula background adds an appreciation for the importance of supporting the whole family. She earned her IBCLC credential in 2009 and has a private practice providing home visits all over the Triangle. She also works in a team to provide integrative care through the North Carolina Integrative Tongue Tie Center. After receiving her professional education, Tongue Tie Doula certification program in 2013, Jessica worked with a team to develop Bridge for Breastfeeding, a program for doulas who wish to provide high quality prenatal breastfeeding education. Through these many collaborative efforts, Jessica is hopeful to see families more fully supported in all their postpartum needs. She also enjoys time with her husband and 4 children, ranging in age from 7 to 17, all of whom were breastfed, although none easily. She also loves anthropology and forming community connections
