Home Visit Lactation Consults
I am available to help with a variety of breastfeeding challenges, including:

- Tongue tie assessment and after-care
- Slow weight gain
- Low supply/oversupply
- Breastfeeding twins
- Plugged ducts and mastitis
- How to bottle feed – respectfully and appropriately
- Going back to work
I find that my experience working with new families for many years is incredibly helpful to my work as a home visit IBCLC. I understand the importance of giving a plan that a new mom can accomplish without feeling overwhelmed (or more overwhelmed than she may already feel!).
Prenatal Consults/Prepare for Breastfeeding
Basically a private class to teach you everything you ever wanted to know about getting breastfeeding off to a good start, and what to do if you hit some bumps. With your doctor’s OK, you can even start collecting colostrum at 37 weeks to really be prepared!
One time (or more) visits to help you streamline your days (and nights) with a new baby. We’ll look at household set-up, what’s working or what may need a little tweaking. No need to re-invent the wheel!
No matter where you are in your breastfeeding journey – I can help! Shields, tubes, SNS, or bottles may be necessary, either short-term or long-term. Together we work on Rule #1: feeding the baby, then Rule #2: protecting the milk supply. And most important of all – maintaining a close relationship with your little one.
