Breastfeeding/Lactation Support

IMG_9783.jpg

Breastfeeding/Chestfeeding is a learned skill.  Sometimes it may take a few weeks for you and your baby to find what works for you. As a Certified Breastfeeding Counselor:

  •  I assist with early breastfeeding management by helping you find the best breastfeeding positions (for you and your baby) and establishing a great latch. 
  • I can teach you how to observe baby's swallowing and tell the difference between a nutritive suck (baby is eating) and non-nutritive (comfort sucking). 
  • I can also help you care for cracked and sore nipples and discuss ways to prevent this from happening again.
  • Discuss how to increase milk supply
  • Review what may be inhibiting milk supply
  • Teach you how to use your breast pump and store breastmilk

What I don't do:

  • Diagnose tongue and lip-tie (lactation consultants, pediatricians, ENT doctors do this) or any other abnormal medical conditions related to lactation
  • Prescribe medications

Each lactation support session can last up to two hours. Cost for each session is $150. Please use the contact form on the Contact Us page to schedule a visit or if you have any questions.
