Transcription: 
Hi my name is Jennifer Davidson I am a Lactation Consultant and an RN in a pediatric practice in Santa Monica. I've been working there for the last 19 and 1/2 years. Prior to that I was an RN in the Children's Hospital in Los Angeles for 10 years. I am currently a mom of a 17 year old boy and a 19 year old college boy. I love running in the mountains with my dog. I love gardening. I love cooking. I've traveled the world and I would love to do that again one day. And I'm currently working on a movie. A documentary on breast feeding. That's my passion and I want to change the way we view breast feeding in America.

RN & Lactation Consultant

Jennifer Davidson, RN, BSN, IBCLC, earned her AA degree in early childhood education and taught preschool for two years. She returned to college and received a bachelor's degree in Nursing. After completing school, she worked as a pediatric nurse at Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles for ten years. During this time she got married and gave birth to a beautiful son who changed her life. Jennifer realized she did not want to return to the same long hours that would take her away from her family. When Jennifer was offered a part-time job as an RN at the progressive pediatric office of Dr. Jay Gordon and Linda Nussbaum in Santa Monica, she accepted it and has been there for 18 years.

Somewhere after birthing and nursing another wonderful son, Jennifer discovered a new passion and began helping other mothers with breastfeeding problems. She completed the extensive training to become a lactation consultant and for the last eight years has been the breastfeeding specialist in the pediatric office. Jennifer has the wonderful opportunity of following women from their pregnancy throughout their breastfeeding journey. She is able to intimately know the women and their stories. Most important, Jennifer learns with the women how best to draw out their own knowledge in creating a successful breastfeeding experience. Repeatedly she has found that helping a woman trust her own instincts builds the most confidence and leads to the most success.
