Jewel Mohr, MEd, IBCLC
Jewel’s passion for breastfeeding began after the birth of her fraternal twin boys in 2007. Despite a high risk pregnancy, bed rest, preterm delivery, cesarean birth, delayed lactation, pumping, NICU babies, latch and positioning challenges, structural issues, feeding complications, and babies with ongoing sensory issues, she breastfed her twins for 13 months.
She began her career in lactation, after having survived the first year as a mother of twins. She is forever grateful for the support from friends, family, parent and breastfeeding support groups, and the professional lactation help of Jaye Haleryn (formerly Jaye Simpson.)
In 2012, she reconnected with Jaye Haleryn, who became her IBCLC mentor.
In 2013, she became an Accredited Breastfeeding Counselor with Breastfeeding USA.
In 2014, she became a Certified Breastfeeding Specialist through Lactation Education Resources.
In May 2015, Jewel earned her specialized Certificate in Lactation Consultant through UC San Diego Extension Lactation Consultant Program.
In October 2015, she earned her credential as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC).
Jewel is an IBCLC in private practice with specialized training in assessing infants for structure and function challenges that can affect breastfeeding. She continues to increase her knowledge in evaluating infant structure issues through ongoing education, current client caseload, and working with local chiropractors and other body workers who assist infants and families with breastfeeding challenges. She is well versed in the importance and efficacy of body work. She continues to work closely with Jaye Haleryn, and will be co-teaching the Structure and Function course in 2019.
