Home Visit Lactation Consults

I am available to help with a variety of breastfeeding challenges, including:

  • Latch difficulties including shallow or painful latch
  • Sore nipples and breast pain
  • 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!).

Postpartum Doula (days/evenings)

I provide postpartum doula care for moms and babies, including breastfeeding support, newborn care, dishes, baby laundry, light meal preparation, foot rubs, and more.

Prenatal Consults/Prepare for Breastfeeding

Really 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!

Coaching/Incorporating Baby

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.
