Thank you for visiting my website!
Hi there! My name is Beckie Walker and I am a Registered Nurse (RN) and an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). I am originally from Hershey, Pennsylvania but moved to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to attend Drexel University where I received my Bachelor's of Science in Nursing, minored in Addictions Counseling, and concentrated in Human Lactation/Breastfeeding. After graduating in June 2015, I was successful in becoming a Registered Nurse as well as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. I completed my clinical hours for the Human Lactation/Breastfeeding Program at Pennsylvania Hospital, the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, as well as Drexel University's 11th Street Clinic in North Philadelphia so I have experience with helping women and children with breastfeeding/lactation from prenatal care, fresh newborns during their initial hospital stay, as well as infants who have been breastfeeding for weeks or months.
I currently work as a Registered Nurse at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, and am the founder/owner of BestFeeding Lactation & Feeding Consultation, LLC where I perform home visits as an IBCLC to the Philadelphia community. Best of all, I am a mommy to the little munchkin pictured on this page. Being a mom is the best thing to ever happen to me and my breastfeeding journey has truly impacted my work as an IBCLC. My hopes for this site is to serve as a platform for my private practice lactation consulting business as well as provide some insight as a momma of a one year old navigating life while working full time, owning my own business, and surviving the deployment of my boyfriend Ethan for the next 20 months!
At this time, I have taken a small break from performing home visits in an effort to spend more time with my daughter and adjust to Ethan being deployed. I hope to start accepting new clients in February but will update this page when I do!
I am available for home consultations for any breastfeeding/lactation needs! I am an in-network provider for both Independence Blue Cross and Aetna insurance policies. I do accept out of pocket payments for all other insurance plans and can provide a Super Bill with proper coding for patients to receive partial or full reimbursement from their insurance companies.
