Dania Patton, CLC
Dania was honored to be the first sponsorship recipient of Innovations Family Wellness INC., to complete her training, and obtain her Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC) Certification. She now serves mamas in her community on the Treasure Coast of Florida as a CLC, and Birth Assistant to midwives.
Dania and her husband have 4 children. She has always had such a passion for all things pregnancy but, through her own pregnancy experiences, both good and bad, the passion has grown more for supporting mamas on their journey through pregnancy, breastfeeding, and the fourth trimester that is often ignored. Also, her heart is to be an advocate for mamas in underserved communities and bring education and awareness to these areas. She is actively working to obtain her International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), Doula Certification, and has a long-time goal of ultimately becoming a midwife.
