Welcome! I am Candace Hallak, a part of your village and a professional you can count on. I have been caring for and supporting families for years and would love to be considered to be a part of your team. As a mother of two beautiful children I am on this journey beside each and every new parent. After starting my journey at Grossmont Hospital Emergency Department, I pursued a career in nursing. After years of working trauma, I ventured into Labor and Delivery and instantly felt inspired. Feeling complete, I moved forward into private practice supporting families in my surrounding areas with a large focus on prenatal education and postpartum support. I am a birth and postpartum doula professional who is involved in the San Diego community emotionally, physically and spiritually. A primary focus of my practice as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) is supporting families with feeding techniques and information to support your goals while you breastfeed or bottle feed. I believe in creating a village for every family using evidence based information, with the addition of supporting the families I work with for a lifetime. With my extensive experience in caring for newborns, I have been able to help families find a balance to confidently parent and enjoy the postpartum period. I also have an educational background in psychology and nutrition and strive to deliver a holistic approach to birth and postpartum through education and referrals. I proudly represent as a member of the San Diego Postpartum Health Alliance and support families through perinatal mood and anxiety disorders.
As a Board Certified Lactation Consultant I am able to support families from the first hour of life beginning to feed until the days of weaning along with everything in between. With a focus on maternal mental health I am motivated to provide the best care for patients to help each family achieve their postpartum goals.
