My name is Miranda Gallegos, I am an Internationally Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) located in San Antonio. I enjoy helping women along their breastfeeding journeys and advocating on behalf of those who cannot advocate for themselves.
I am also a nursing student working towards my BSN degree and I graduate in May of 2017. I have two children ages 2 and 3, and I have been married for almost 5 years! I served my country in the United States Army for 5 years and I worked as a laboratory technologist.
My goal is to provide breastfeeding information as well as discuss issues surrounding pregnancy, childbirth, motherhood, and human rights, all of which are very near and dear to my heart.
