Breastfeeding and Lactation services
As a International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) I teach breastfeeding classes, offer prenatal breastfeeding plans, and provide lactation consulting. The need for support goes beyond the blooming belly, I can support you during pregnancy and also through the early stages of breastfeeding. I will educate you on in-depth knowledge of breastfeeding, and can assist in research and referrals regarding any questions and concerns you have that I am unable to answer. I also provide private breastfeeding classes for couples and groups upon request. Your $125 private initial visit will include 60-90 minutes of lactation counseling in the comfort of your home to set your breastfeeding relationship in a positive direction, whilst addressing and solving any current problems. Follow up visits are $75. My purpose is to help you safely meet your breastfeeding goals with comfort and ease. I see patients at Midtown Nurse Midwives' Breastfeeding Medicine Clinic, MiLC and offer home visits.
Breastfeeding was also something I never thought I would fall in love with, but that has definitely changed. I believe that every mother who wishes to breastfeed should have the education and support that she needs to maintain a successful breastfeeding relationship with her child however she chooses to do so. Working and stay at home mamas all need support. Through my past leadership role with La Leche League I try to make this possible for every mother. Please see the LLL website for local meetings where you will be able to use the search bar to locate a meeting near you. We still have a local breastfeeding support page on Facebook for more contacts with local mothers. If you have trouble please connect with me.
