History of GCBC
GCBC was founded by Stephanie Gable, RN, IBCLC (pictured below) after many conversations with mothers who voiced the desire for a community-based breastfeeding service that didn't involve going "back to the hospital". GCBC provides a private, calm and clean environment to meet each mother's individual breastfeeding goals. All services are tailored to the unique needs of each mother and her baby. Our primary goal is to support, protect, advocate and educate women regarding the benefits of human milk for all babies.
