Alura Hirsch IBCLC
Vegas Valley Lactation Consultant
My name is Alura Hirsch and I am a Las Vegas native. I am a mother of two beautiful daughters, both of whom I breastfed for over a year. My love for breastfeeding started when my niece was born 18 years ago. My sister was my role model and she breastfed both of her children. She normalized breastfeeding for me. I attended many years of college studying biology, and it was there that I attained my passion for science. After having two children I wanted to join my two passions, breastfeeding, and biology. That path led me down to become a Lactation Consultant.
I started my training through Breastfeeding USA where I became a counselor in March 2017, following that I became a Certified Lactation Counselor through Healthy Children in April 2017. I did not want to stop there and I continued my education and took the Health Children’s course to become an Advanced Lactation Consultant in June 2017. Passing the exams was just the first step in my Lactation journey. I finished my next step of becoming an IBCLC April 2019. I am TOTS trained and TummyTime!™ certified. I enjoy staying up to date on the newest research for breastfeeding support. My number one goal is to help mothers succeed in meeting their goals in their breastfeeding journey.
