I am Amey Fields of Az Breastfed Babies LLC and I am an Internationally Board Certified Lactation  Consultant (IBCLC) and a labor and delivery nurse with over 20 years of experience helping moms and babies with breastfeeding.

I am a wife and mother. My husband Steven retired from the United States Coast Guard in 2016 after serving for 30 years. He is my biggest supporter and when he is not helping me he is always helping someone else.

I have three children, Callahan, Emma and Conner. Each one of my birth experiences have been very different and each one has shaped me to be the nurse I am today. I have experienced a natural birth with a midwife, a hospital birth with an OB, and a Cesarean birth for a persistent breech baby!

I started working as a labor and delivery nurse in 1998 and in 2010 I was given the opportunity to run the community education department at the hospital I was working at. I became Lamaze certified and began teaching childbirth and newborn care classes to expectant parents. In addition to working as a labor nurse in the hospital setting I have also assisted with home births and spent 2 years working at a free standing birth center. In 2011 I started a wonderful postpartum support group called Circle of Mothers that I still offer as a free weekly group today.

My main focus is helping moms and babies with breastfeeding. Thank you for visiting my website. Please click on the links above and/ or contact me for more information on consults, classes and support groups.

I am also pet friendly so do not hesitate to let your friendly pets say hi if I come to your home for a consult!

 

Welcome Annie Rueb, RN to my team!

My name is Annie Rueb. I am a Labor and Delivery Nurse and a Certified Breastfeeding Educator, working towards my IBCLC. I have been a nurse since 2011 and have spent the majority of that time working with families through pregnancy, birth, and breastfeeding. I spent a couple of years at a freestanding birth center and the last 5 years at a community hospital in labor and delivery.

My husband Sam and I have two beautiful girls together, Kai and Savannah. Sam is a nurse too and works in the operating room in two Phoenix hospitals. Sam is my biggest supporter and a wonderful human being. Our favorite thing to do is to pack up our kids and dogs and go on an adventure. Whether that adventure is down the road, up north, out of state, or on the other side of the world, we’re in. Our children inspire us with their adventurous spirit and we can’t wait to see what they will explore next.

I am grateful for the opportunity to continue to learn from Amey as I pursue my IBCLC. I am very excited to help moms and babies with breastfeeding and supporting their goals. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of this very important time in your lives.
