Vicki Volfrum Memorial Fund
Vicki Wolfrum was the founder of Best Baby Ever and Whole Life Home Health Care, Inc. She was extremely passionate and committed to serving women and assisting to be successful with breastfeeding. As a midwife and lactation consultant, Vicki\'s passion for moms and babies was contagious and inspiring to all. She was always willing to share her insight into challenging breastfeeding situations. Additionally, she had the honor of assisting over 3,500 women to deliver their babies.
At the time of her passing, Vicki was slated to begin her role as President of the San Diego County Breastfeeding Coalition (SDCBC) - an organization she was very involved with and was passionate about promoting their mission.
