Hi, I’m Francie.
Feeding my children with my body has been one of the greatest joys and challenges of my life. When I went back to work after my first baby, I pumped dutifully—and I hated every minute of it.
For me, producing milk while away from my baby sent me down a rabbit hole of anxiety. I tried all the things, but nothing worked. I was living in a place called Not Enough, and it sucked.
Then I taught myself to hand express my breast milk, and everything changed—my milk output, my view of myself, my whole life. TRUTH. Since I've learned to hand express, I've birthed a baby by myself, founded a business, gone viral, and written a book. Yes, this is some powerful stuff.
And so, I wanted to share what I'd learned with others—I wanted to share it with the world. I developed the Go Milk Yourself method, a menu of options designed to make hand expression accessible to all lactating parents, and the people and loved ones who support them. And I gathered a team of badass professionals to help me build this movement, too.
Pumped yet? So am I! And I’m beyond excited to work with you.
Note: I’m not a certified lactation consultant or medical professional. I'm an IBCLC-in-training; I'm learning from an incredible mentor. Everything I know is self-taught or comes from my experience working with many parents and professionals across the world. I'm happy to share my knowledge, and you should also consult other trusted professionals to find what is best for you and your baby!
