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’ve learned from years of experience that being responsive to your needs is one of the most important aspects of my practice. When a mother is in a pain, or baby is not feeding well, these issues need attention on the shortest timeline possible. Because of this necessity, I maintain a flexible schedule that allows me to see most clients in 1 to 2 days from initial contact. This schedule is possible within the framework of my regular business hours, Monday thru Friday, at my downtown Knoxville office location. My office is a comfortable, quiet place where I can focus completely on you and baby. The in-office core of my practice is supplemented as necessary with home visit consultation. This option may be available under certain situations where the mother’s ability to travel is limited.
In addition to my clinical practice, I offer individual and group educational 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!)
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!
