Safiya Hafizi

RN, IBCLC, FNP-C (Lactation Consultant)
Safiya Hafizi is an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). She has extensive experience as a postpartum and newborn nurse, where she found her passion for helping mothers and babies in the most beautiful and natural bonding process of breastfeeding.

Her lactation experience was further enhanced when she moved to India for 1 year and volunteered with a breastfeeding support group called Breastfeeding Promotion Network of India (BPNI). The experience of working with indigent mothers, learning from their helplessness and passion to make breastfeeding work, augmented her counseling skills in complicated breastfeeding issues. Since then her passion to learn, teach, and spread awareness grew.

To further grow professionally and personally in the field of lactation and nursing, she earned a master’s degree as a Certified Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP-C). Her experience is enhanced from having worked in a variety of different settings including clinics, hospitals, office, and home visits. Breastfeeding is innate, but various risk factors can hinder this process.

Simply Lactation strives in recognizing those risk factors and works towards helping a mother achieve her breastfeeding goals. We at Simply Lactation are one close knit family in providing constant support and help for all our moms and babies by creating an interactive community.

Arlyn Johnson

BS, IBCLC, CBS (Lactation Consultant)
Arlyn’s lactation experience began 12 years ago as a first-time mother struggling to latch her baby! With the help and guidance of an experienced IBCLC, not only did Arlyn go on to breastfeed her own 5 children, she also became passionate about helping other breastfeeding families. She became Certified Breastfeeding Specialist through Lactation Education Resources in 2016. She believes that breastfeeding is as much mental and emotional as it is physical so she went on to earn a Bachelor of Science in Psychology to provide a more well-rounded counseling experience for families.

Arlyn worked as a hospital Lactation Consultant for 3 years providing care in Labor & Delivery, Couplet Care, the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, and in all other departments where lactating mothers needed help such as in the ER, PACU, CCU, and ICU. Arlyn created the curriculum used to teach new maternal child health nurses basic breastfeeding and went on to create an outpatient lactation clinic through the hospital.

Arlyn furthered her career by earning her IBCLC certification allowing her to expand her reach into the heart of the community. Arlyn has experience as a Lactation Consultant in-home, virtually, in the hospital, and as community-based Breastfeeding Coordinator. The personal and professional experience with learning how to overcome breastfeeding issues has allowed Arlyn to empower countless families on their feeding journeys.

“Breastfeeding is a beautiful labor of love from Mother to Child. Being an IBCLC allows me to take part in the powerful journey mothers take to gift their babies with liquid love; a love that will positively impact them for the rest of their lives. It is an honor to help families transition into their postpartum/breastfeeding period, their joy and empowerment is payment all in itself.” -Arlyn
