Owner Betsy

The Breastfeeding Center was established in 1987 when Elizabeth "Betsy" Studer saw a need for professional counseling for breastfeeding mothers.  After the birth of her third child in 1985, she realized that support for breastfeeding mothers did not exist in the hospital and was limited in the community.  At that time she began counseling breastfeeding mothers and in 1987 became a board certified lactation consultant and taught the first breastfeeding class in Stark County at Aultman Hospital.  She has been helping mothers and babies ever since

Betsy received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Ohio State University and her Master of Science in Nursing from the University of Akron and is an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse. She is a Past-President of the Ohio Lactation Consultant Association and was their Conference Coordinator for nine years.  She has of four children, three daughter-in-laws and five grandchildren. 

After working out of her home office for 19 years and employed as an IBCLC at Massillon Community Hospital, she purchased a home zoned commercial in 2004. On June 28, 2006 after 18 months of remodeling, she was proud to open her freestanding Breastfeeding Center at 2800 Lincoln Way East in Massillon, OH.  A dream come true!  Please stop in to see us!
