Allika Alcé IBCLC, Birth and Post-Partum Doula
As a Lactation specialist I work to ensure that every family receives the quality of care they need and deserve.
Each Family needs are unique, and the care and information is tailored in that way . I started my lactation career working as a peer counselor for a local women's clinic in New York. I have also worked as a lactation specialist for the Florida Department of health in Seminole County.
With over 16 years of personal and professional breast-feeding experience I have handled many unique situations. In addition to my private practice I am the lactation specialist for tree of life Birth and Gynecology where I meet and consult with all their breastfeeding families. I live in Central Florida with my loving husband, and 5 beautiful children. In my spare time I enjoy bike riding, long-walks, jogging, reading and writing.
Tiffany Tyson CLC, Birth and Post-Partum Doula
As a Certified Lactation Counselor, I offer evidence based information and support to breastfeeding mothers and families. I was once a new mother who needed help with breastfeeding. Not knowing where to turn, It was the support and guidance from the lactation staff at my local Health Department that made all the difference for me. Their support inspired me to become a CLC and allowed me to work as a peer counselor for the local Women Infant and Children's clinic. I continue to help mothers in the Central Florida area by assisting in breastfeeding support groups and prenatal breastfeeding classes in the central Florida area as well as at Tree of Life Birth and Gynecology located in Orlando and Deland Florida. I live in Central Florida with my husband and 3 beautiful children.
