About Fara

Fara Patterson BAH, BScN, RN, IBCLC is a Lactation Consultant and a maternal and infant care nurse who has been working with mothers for over 20 years. She has extensive experience in both community and clinical settings.


Fara brings a unique wholistic perspective to her practice. She is the mother of two bright (and daily challenging!) children of her own, and the daughter of environmental advocates and world travellers. She can expertly guide you through the technical challenges new mothers face in learning to breastfeed, while also providing sensitive and nurturing care and counselling for the mother baby dyad.

Much as a lotus flower blooms, the birth of a new baby marks a beautiful moment of great change and growth in a woman’s life. Feeding our infants is the most basic and primal of mothering drives, and yet there is no handbook that comes with the birth of our little ones! As a Board Certified Lactation Consultant With more than 20 years of clinical and community experience, Fara Patterson is able to provide warm, sensitive and expert support around your infant feeding, parenting, and emotional health issues during this time.
