Jessica Sacher MN, RN, IBCLC
As a Lactation Consultant, and Registered Nurse, I’ve spent over 30 years helping new mothers breast feed their babies. For most of that time, I’ve worked at the Pump Station in Santa Monica, and in the neonatal intensive care unit at SM/UCLA Medical Center
I love being a comprehensive resource to mothers, while helping them achieve their breastfeeding goals. I’ve spent a significant portion of my career working in the NICU, where I have and still care for new mothers of premature, and medically fragile babies. I thrive helping moms establish their milk supplies and working with them to nurse their babies. I believe that every mother and every baby are unique, therefore individualized care plans are a key to success. All babies are born to breast feed, some just need a little loving, helping hand, and clinical expertise to get there.
Areas Serviced: Santa Monica, West LA, Pacific Palisades, Brentwood

Devorie Baitelman IBCLC
I am a New York native, living in Los Angeles for the last 15 years. I am a proud mom of six boys (ages 5 to 21). As my boys grew older, I was on the lookout for a new career. After exploring various career options and helping some new mom friends along the way I set my eyes on becoming a Lactation Consultant. This profession combines my passions for babies, breastfeeding, and helping others. I so enjoyed my breastfeeding experiences with my babies that I wished the same for all moms. So, in my 30's and a mom of 5 at the time, I returned to school. After completing my prerequisites, I was accepted to the program at UCSD and finally became an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC).
I would love to offer you guidance and support as you navigate new motherhood and breastfeeding. I offer comprehensive services to boost your confidence and will work closely with you to help you achieve measurable results to meet your breastfeeding goals.
Areas Serviced: Greater Los Angeles Including: Santa Monica, Inglewood, Van Nuys, Culver City, Malibu, Topanga, Silver Lake. Travel Fee may apply
Dr. Pamela Abramson-Levine - Family Practice Non-Force Chiropractor, IBCLC
As a licensed doctor of chiropractic in the state of California, I am a primary care provider and my scope of practice is much greater than if I were an IBCLC alone, or even an RN and an IBCLC. I will perform a thorough exam of your baby, and of your breasts, and will render any relevant diagnoses. I am then able to incorporate gentle infant chiropractic adjustments, when needed, to assist your baby with latching and breastfeeding. Learn more about me and the services I offer here.

Sarah Peck RN, IBCLC
I chose a career as a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit RN and International Board-Certified Lactation Consultant because I believe that no parent can do it alone. I want to help you navigate those first few months postpartum. My practice, Nesting Lactation, focuses on each patient's individual circumstances. I received my Bachelor's degree at University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill and Master of Science in Nursing at the University of Illinois, Chicago. I received my IBCLC training at UCSD and completed my clinical hours at The Pump Station. I have worked in the NICU at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, MA, and Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.
Areas Serviced: Los Angeles County, but based in Beverly Grove
