Baby Breastfeeding

History & Mission


Montika Collins started Innovations Lactation and Breastfeeding Services in December 2012. She has a passion for serving mamas and families because of her own experience with a colicky baby. She has taken numerous courses to further advance her knowledge on the breastfeeding dyad, tongue-ties, and overall health of the body. Montika takes a holistic approach when serving families and looks at the dyad as a whole. To have a healthy baby, you have to have a healthy mama too!

Montika's passion for the health and well-being of minority women and children led her to co-found the 501(c)3, nonprofit organization, Innovations Family Wellness INC. She serves her community as the Co-President & CEO of Innovations Family Wellness INC. Montika is looking to close the gap in the education of minority women in the field of lactation.

Montika graduated from the Maryland University of Integrative Health with a Master of Arts (MA) in Health and Wellness Coaching and a concentration in Medical Herbalism. She also earned a Bachelor of Science (BS) in Biology and Chemistry from Northeastern State University. Montika graduated Magna Cum Laude from Oral Roberts University with a Bachelor of Science (BSN) in Nursing. Her qualifications set her apart from others because she is able to look at families from the perspective of being a nurse, herbalist, and lactation consultant.

In addition to teaching nursing students, she also trains healthcare professionals on how to utilize and integrate holistic healthcare practices into their medical practices. She also holds group training and seminars for various perinatal providers. Montika serves local women, breastfeeding mothers, and their infants providing them with health & wellness coaching, herbal support, bodywork, and advanced holistic lactation & breastfeeding support.

In September 2021 we launched our Treasure Coast Florida office. We are so excited to expand our practices across the nation so we can help create a healthier society!
