Congratulations and thank you for choosing Sound Breastfeeding!
Based in Shoreline, Washington, Joy MacTavish, MA, IBCLC, RLC, ICCE, offers Seattle lactation consultations, support, and education to families through all aspects of their breastfeeding journey – from prenatal preparation, early days with a newborn, handling potential challenges, exploring transitions, all the way through weaning.


As an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant, all classes, clinical consultations, and on-going support for breastfeeding clients are comprehensive and compassionate. With years of experience supporting families, hundreds of hours of education and training, and hundreds of hours of hospital, community, and home-based clinical experience, supporting families is truly my passion.
