Announcement:  After ten years of hard work in an independent practice, I am currently hiring other IBCLCs to expand my service area and serve more families.  Each IBCLC will be mentored and guided by me, giving you the same clinical expertise you are used to.  Now more families get the joy of being seen at home and we can cut down on the wait time!




Why hello there! Welcome to The Boston Area Lactation Connection (Formerly North Shore Birth Services). Thank you for stopping by. I’m Kira Kim, Owner and Lead Clinician at The Boston Area Lactation Connection. I am an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) and clinical Herbalist 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?  We can help! Click on services up above to read more.

Our goal is to support you with YOUR goals and we 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, we are here for you.  Your baby, your decisions, my support. 

If you are interested in working with us, please fill out an intake here or email me at info@thebalc.com with any questions!

We look forward to hearing from you!
