About me

My Philosophy
My Story

My name is Nicole Halling. I received my BSN through MWSU in St. Joseph, MO and have been a nurse since 2004. I started my career at The University of Kansas Hospital in 2004 as a High-Risk antepartum/mother-baby nurse. Through the years I developed a passion with the education and breastfeeding support aspect of my nursing role. I decided to pursue this passion and in 2014 I sat for and passed boards to become an International Board Certified Lactation Conultant (IBCLC). I am now an IBCLC at Mosaic Life Care in St. Joseph, MO and absolutely love the ability to assist families right after delivery!! It brings me great joy to be able to have a small hand in helping breastfeeding families achieve their individual breastfeeding goals!! 


My Training

Providing evidence-based breastfeeding education and assistance in a calm and mom-goal led environment. MY goal is to help you reach YOUR goal!

I see a need in our community and surrounding area for support when breastfeeding is not going as planned; or for those speed bumps in life along a mother's breastfeeding journey. Although mothers can attend the breastfeeding support group at Mosaic Life care--which I absolutely love and highly recommend that all breastfeeding mothers attend--there are times that mothers need to receive one-on-one, individualized care by an IBCLC. Studies show that mothers are more successful with breastfeeding if they have professional support from an IBCLC. I want to provide this support for breastfeeding families. 


IBCLCs go through a rigorous educational program. Many IBCLCs will have specialized training in complex breastfeeding issues through their RN background and bedside experience. IBCLCs have to pass a comprehensive exam before being granted certification through the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners. Additionally, IBCLCs have to stay up to date in their practice as they must renew their license every 5 years. Most importantly, it is best practice to stay up to date with the latest research to best help our clients!
