Stephanie Casemore, B.A., B.Ed., OCT, CBC (CBI)

Stephanie Casemore is a teacher, writer, and breastfeeding counsellor living in eastern Ontario, Canada. She started her professional career as a secondary school English teacher, a field in which she continues to work, and she currently attempts to balance her work as a teacher with the work of supporting new mothers and babies— sometimes even quite successfully. Stephanie first experienced breastfeeding as a challenge, exclusively pumping for her first child, and then as a healing experience, breastfeeding her second child. Transforming her experiences into an opportunity to support other mothers, Stephanie wrote Exclusively Pumping Breast Milk: A Guide to Providing Expressed Breast Milk for Your Baby and Breastfeeding, Take Two: Successful Breastfeeding the Second Time Around. In addition to her books, she offers women a supportive online environment to access valuable camaraderie and information through a number of websites and Facebook groups.
