Breastfeeding is natural, but it is also learned – by both mother and baby. Every mother, every baby, and every breastfeeding relationship is different. As a TALPP-Certified Lactation Counselor, I provide nonjudgemental support, encouragement, and empathy along with the education and evidence-based information which can help you manage difficulties and devise a plan that fits your needs and helps you meet your individual breastfeeding goals. As a nursing (and working) mom of twins, I know the impact that good information and caring support can have on the well-being of both mom and baby.
I offer breastfeeding support as part of birth and postpartum doula services and packages. In addition, I also offer stand-alone lactation consultation.
A lactation consultation includes:
- A home visit to discuss questions and concerns and to assess a feeding. Common concerns include: baby not latching well, breast or nipple pain during or between nursings, concerns about low milk supply, managing oversupply, baby fussing at the breast, poor weight gain, nursing after a NICU stay, nursing multiples, or returning to work and breastfeeding.
- Developing a plan tailored to fit your needs, and follow-up with phone and email support.
- Fee: $70
