In 1998, Veronica Tingzon became a childbirth educator and doula, but soon realized that this area of maternity was not where her heart was. She went on to study lactation- her true passion, in 2003. She became an I.B.C.L.C. in October 2005. She currently practices as a lactation consultant at Tri-City Medical Center, teaches pre-natal breastfeeding and parenting classes at several Scripps Hospitals and Tri-City Medical Center, does private practice lactation consults through her private lactation practice “The Original Comfort Food Lactation Services”, and until recently worked at Queen of the Valley Hospital and Scripps Mercy Hospital doing inpatient, bedside lactation consults. She hosts a Podcast called Mommies Milk and More found on iTunes and blogs for http://www.nursingbraexpress.com. But, Veronica firmly believes that being mom to her two sons, Spencer and Christian, is her true calling in life.
