My name is Stephanie Kaufman and I am a bachelor’s prepared registered nurse graduating from Kansas University School of Nursing in 1996. Knowing from the time I was a little girl that I wanted to major in “babies” ☺, I knew from the beginning that labor and delivery nursing was where my passion was.
Thankfully, I was hired out of college to do just that—labor, delivery, postpartum and nursery nursing and never looked back. Having been at the same hospital for the last 27 years, I was offered a position in 2015 to specialize in lactation. I began a stronger focus on breastfeeding and made the decision to become an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant in 2016 and have been practicing as an IBCLC ever since.
I can’t wait to help you on your lactation + postpartum journey!
