Welcome to the website of Calani Lactation Services! My name is Kristin Williams and I am an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). My personal mission is to provide comprehensive, results-based lactation support and education to breastfeeding mommas in Knoxville, TN and surrounding communities. I strive to do this with warmth, care and attention to each momma’s individual needs.
I know from experience that the best time to help you is on baby’s schedule, and the best place to help you is where both you and baby are most comfortable...your home. This is why the core of my practice is in-home lactation consulting provided on a responsive, flexible schedule. I will come to you, when you need, on short notice as necessary, and prepared to help you succeed.
In addition to my core, in-home consultation practice, I offer individual and group classes for expectant mothers. These classes focus on the concepts needed to get breastfeeding off to the best start and are tailored for first time parents. (The classes also serve well as a refresher for those mommas who have already experienced the special bond of breastfeeding!) In addition to instruction based classes, I offer access to a free, monthly breastfeeding support group which I lead. The in-person group access is supplemented by the largest and most active breastfeeding Facebook group in Knoxville, The Knox Breastfriends Group, which I administer. This group is a great way to connect with the local community, get answers to common questions, discuss breastfeeding related topics and even make lasting friendships with other moms!
I hope you find what you are looking for at my website. If you don’t see the answer to your question in these pages, please feel free to contact me directly and I will be happy to help you on your breastfeeding journey!
