Happy New Year!!!!  I am accepting new patients. Home visits available Monday- Thursday from 9-2 pm. Follow ups and virtual consults Fridays in office in Somerville (Davis Square, T-accessible, walking distance from Davis Station).





Why hello there! Welcome to The Boston Area Lactation Connection (Formerly North Shore Birth Services). Thank you for stopping by. I’m Kira Kim, an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) in private practice serving families all over the Eastern Massachusetts.

Have you recently had a baby and looking for in-home lactation care? (Congratulations!!)  Are you expecting and would like to get some questions answered before baby arrives?  Questions about returning to work or weaning?  I can help! Click on services up above to read more.

My goal is to support you with YOUR goals and I pride myself on offering compassionate, judgement-free clinical care to all of my families. Whether you are looking to nurse for 2 years, formula feed half the time or wean after 2 days, I’m here for you.  Your baby, your decisions, my support. 

If you are interested in working with me, please feel free to email me at info@thebalc.com or call/text me at 617-319-4542.

I look forward to hearing from you!
