Shaz Tayebi IBCLC CST

“Shaz is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about her work. She taught me that breastfeeding should not hurt and can be enjoyable. She is very thorough and will show you many ways to feed and ensure that baby has a good latch. When I recommend Shaz to friends who are having challenges with breastfeeding I call her “the breastfeeding guru” for the lower mainland. I highly recommend anyone struggling to contact her as soon as possible for one to one consultation. You will learn so much and gain peace of mind knowing that you and your body are doing the best you can for your baby.”
