Welcome to Beautiful Bond Breastfeeding Services...My name is Julie Fields and I have been a registered International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) since October of 2012, beginning my private practice shortly after. I began working with families beginning in 2010 doing inpatient and outpatient consultations and assisting group classes during my intensive clinical internship while in Charlotte, NC. I am a proud mother of 5 (4 girls and 1 boy). I am committed to protecting and supporting the breastfeeding relationship through professional and compassionate care. My ultimate goal is to EDUCATE and EMPOWER a family to be able to fulfill your breastfeeding goals. I look forward to joining your family during this precious time!
I have always been passionate about breastfeeding support and have found my path after encountering my own breastfeeding difficulties. I specialize in latch issues, nipple and breast pain, low milk supply or over supply, multiples, pumping and bottle feeding, partial breastfeeding and return to work. I also have had training in oral habilitation and supporting babies with oral restrictions to regain optimal function. Proudly serving both Pratt & Goddard (and surrounding areas)
Contact me today! I would love to be a part of your breastfeeding journey!
Hi there, I’m Bethany Martin. I became interested in breastfeeding when I was pregnant with my oldest child in 2016. I didn’t know lactation consultants were a thing until I had my third baby and we were struggling. I’m a Registered Nurse by trade, working med-surg. I have had a passion for helping people since I was a young girl. Not only am I an experienced breastfeeding mother myself but I have another unique perspective being a twin! If I’m not studying or helping moms with their babies, you can find me with my husband and three kids, in a beehive, on a horse, or in the garden. We are excited to welcome baby #4 sometime in August 2023.
I started with Julie & Beautiful Bond in October 2022 and plan to certify as an IBCLC in the Spring of 2024. I look forward to my career as a lactation consultant serving both Pratt & Goddard locations. I currently strive to keep things working smoothly by assisting all office consultations and providing breastfeeding education, both virtual & in person. If you'd like to sign up for a group or individual breastfeeding class, please contact me and I'll find time to get you on our books.
Reach out so we can find a way to support you in your breastfeeding journey & support you in whatever you may need.
Beautiful Bond was established in December 2012 after Julie achieved her IBCLC certification. Things started with a dream & prayers beginning with home visits traveling near & far any & all days of the week, free phone support at all hours, lots of mom to mom support groups. After being a part of an amazing grant project from 2015-2018 she expanded services with an office in Wichita (March 2019) after much encouragement from loving providers in the area. Offices have changed but the love/sweat/prayers haven't. 2023 has brought more staff & larger office spaces with continued growth being a goal. We hope to be able to help as many families in need as we can while continuing to love our families deeply.
We believe that your breastfeeding journey is unique and will look different for every family. This experience will last a lifetime. That's why we're dedicated to helping you achieve YOUR breastfeeding goals in a way that works best for your family.
As we begin care we like to let clients know that we do our best to practice more holistically & strive to treat the whole mom & whole baby. We do a little sleuthing to ensure things for the family are optimal. As we begin care plans and incorporate practices, these are always meant to meet the unique needs of your family & should not be shared to be practiced by other families as they have their own unique needs and should be advised by a health professional.
From one-on-one consultations to group classes we hope to support every breastfeeding mother wherever she is in her breastfeeding journey. Our lactation consultants are here to provide you with the guidance and support you need to succeed. We're happy to come alongside you and help you every step of the way so if you have questions or concerns, don't hesitate to reach out! We look forward to being a part of your feeding journey!
Additional training in Oral Habilitation in this IBCLC Master Class provides me with the knowledge to help breastfeeding dyads regain form & function following oral restriction releases. Oral exercises benefit many babies in developing proper suckling skills to optimize breastfeeding.
