In-home Lactation Support
Breastfeeding our babies is one of the most beautiful and natural things we can do.
So it must be easy right? Not always!
Each woman and each baby are unique and their journey to breastfeeding successfully depends on many factors. Having the right support early on can make a huge difference in your relationship to breastfeeding.
As a licensed midwife my training includes supporting new mothers in breastfeeding and overcoming some of the most common issues. As a nursing mother I also have my own personal experience to draw from. I am currently studying toward becoming an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC).
Some of the common issues I can help you with include:
- Nipple and/or Breast Pain
- Low Milk Supply
- Latching Issues
- Slow Weight Gain / Weight Loss
I can also help you learn how to:
- Pump or express your milk with ease
- Wear your baby in a wrap or carrier and nurse at the same time (for slightly older babies)
Cost: I am so passionate about supporting mothers to breastfeed that my initial consult (2-hrs) is donation based. If I am able to solve your problems with the first visit, and you are happy with the results, then a donation of $100 is appreciated. Follow up consults (1 hour) are $75.
If your issues are outside of my scope of care or experience, then I am happy to refer you to an IBCLC consultant.
