Aster, a native of Singapore, has a background in science and a Masters in environmental policy. She has been volunteering as a breastfeeding counsellor both online and in person through various organizations. She is passionate about helping families navigate the peripartum period, which is mentally, emotionally, and physically challenging for many. Aster is also a community interpreter, where she helps families with limited English proficiency navigate the health and social system. The rewarding experience of seeing parents gain confidence in breastfeeding spurred Aster to take it a step further and delve into clinical components of lactation support through the IBCLC certification.
Health e-Learning is proud to have supported Aster to reach her goal and she has now successfully achieved certification as an IBCLC in 2021. Congratulations Aster!
