Molly Peterson, Authentic Birth Center

Molly Peterson, IBCLC

Breastfeeding Care &






Hello! My name is Molly Peterson and I am an International Board-Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) and I am so excited to be apart of the Authentic Family!

I earned my bachelor’s degree in Communicative Disorders with an Emphasis in Speech-Language Pathology from Northern Illinois University in 2015. While in school, I worked at a small durable medical equipment facility helping moms get breast pumps through their insurance company. It was there I found my passion for breastfeeding and helping mamas and babies. After graduation, I worked to fulfill the requirements to sit for my lactation board exam in the spring of 2016.

When I am not working with breastfeeding families, I works as the Professional Development Coordinator for the United States Lactation Consultant Association and provide lactation phone support to moms all over the country with LactCorp Solutions. For fun I enjoy baking, cooking, geocaching, and watching movies!

"She (Molly) has a great additional background that contributes to her LC knowledge and skills. We took extensive classes on breastfeeding before giving birth. Even though I was mostly prepared, I went to Molly when the initial journey had multiple bumps. She was an uplifting, informative, encouraging support person. I went to a bf group she led and that was a benefit for me too. Whatever you are or aren't aware of what you need help for, you and baby are 100% worth her attention." ~~Rachel
