Sarah Lester is the lead IBCLC with Naturally the Best Lactation Services and is the wife of Eric and mother to Aubrey and Everley. She has a Bachelor of Science degree in Biochemistry from NC State University and has her lactation certifications in educating, counseling, and consulting from UCSD.
Sarah has been involved in the field of lactation for over 3 years now, after learning the love of breastfeeding through her first daughter. Sarah was clinically trained at Cape Fear Valley Medical Center and has good standing relationships with all the local (and some not so local) hospital lactation and feeding teams – these connections allow for teamwork to happen so each baby can get the best care and each mom can have assistance in finding the breastfeeding relationship that she desires.
Sarah is the attending IBCLC for laser tongue tie procedures at a large dental practice in Fayetteville and provides breastfeeding assistance home visits. She is a member of the NC Breastfeeding Coalition, the Cumberland County Breastfeeding Coalition, the NC Lactation Consultants Association, and is a member of the local La Leche League.
Sarah’s goal is to assist each mom in reaching her breastfeeding goals, no matter how short or long term they may be. Sarah prides herself on being an equal opportunity consultant, giving each mom and baby 100% and finding the solution to breastfeeding difficulties, so moms and babies can both learn to love the act of breastfeeding. Sarah is constantly broadening her education to better support moms and babies and most recently completed the Postpartum Support International training certifying her on components of care for perinatal mood and anxiety disorders.
