About Me

IBCLC, Lactation, breastfeeding, Ogden, Utah

Karin Hardman, IBCLC in Ogden, Utah

I am Karin Hardman.  I started my breastfeeding journey with a preemie who was too uncoordinated to latch.  With lots of really great support, I was able to nurse him and my subsequent children.  I have been a volunteer breastfeeding counselor since 2004 and an IBCLC since 2011.  I have experienced much in breastfeeding my own children and have supported moms and babies in even more.  Nursing takes a village.  🙂

I have a private practice in Ogden, Utah, where I live with my beautiful family.

At Bel Canto Babies, we believe that every breastfeeding/chestfeeding dyad has the need for proper support, encouragement, and up-to-date information. We believe that babies and those that mother them have innate wisdom in their bodies and each other. We try to facilitate that wisdom as much as possible.

I do this because I want to improve the world by infusing more respect and love into it. As mothers learn to love mothering, they love their children. They teach their children with respect and compassion, and this continues by making our children loving, respectful and compassionate. This all starts at the breast.

Motto: Making the world more gentle and compassionate: one family at a time.
