About Jennifer Harris
I have recently retired from nursing after 35 years. I want to share the wisdom I have gained from those years in my writing. I self published my first book just this past March. The No-B.S. Guide to Breasteeding -Advice for the new Mom from an Experienced Lactation Consultant.
Jennifer worked on the paediatric unit, medical units, and offered respite care in the community for handicapped children. She has had plenty of experience dealing with many social issues that affected her parents while trying to parent including mental health issues, domestic abuse and drug dependency.
Jennifer went to Seneca College School of Nursing where she obtained her nursing diploma. She became a Registered Nurse shortly after graduation. Later in her career she obtained her BHSc(N) and went on to become an International Board-Certified Lactation Consultant (I.B.C.L.C.) A year ago, Jennifer made the decision to retire and concentrate on her writing. This year, her first book has been published, The No-B.S. Guide to Breastfeeding: Advice for the New Mom from an Experienced Lactation Consultant. It is available on Amazon.ca. This is her first published book.
Her first book ‘The No B.S Guide to Breastfeeding’ is available for purchase on Amazon.com, and covers both normal expectations of the breastfeeding experience and practical considerations. Throughout the book, topics such as leaking, latching and weaning are discussed, with multiple solutions provided to suit any mom’s lifestyle.

Whisper Their Names: The journey to peace after losing your child
With over thirty years of maternity experience, Jennifer realized that many families have experienced a loss. But for whatever reason, we only celebrate the new beginnings and leave bereaved parents on their own to navigate their future after a devastating loss. The common theme I found, was that our society does not encourage the family to talk about their child. They are left with the impression they should just “forget about it and move on”. I wanted to give voice to their stories and make this a safe place to talk about the child they lost, no matter how hard the conversation is.
