Breastfeeding Support

Feed your baby with confidence.

Breastfeeding can be the new mother’s number one challenge after giving birth. Loving, caring support and encouragement in the first few weeks are of paramount importance to establishing a successful routine. My goal is to provide that care and support.

Need help with breastfeeding?

I have specific training in lactation support, and,  by nature, I am nurturing and calm. Having someone by your side who has breastfed her own children and who is trained to assist you is invaluable.

My breastfeeding support services are customized to your unique needs. I can help you with:

  • I will help you get a proper latch and breastfeeding postion to prevent latching pain while nursing.
  • Unsure of how to recognize your baby’s feeding cues? I will help you understand when and how often to feed your baby.
  • If you are struggling with engorgement and mastitis, I can help ease the discomfort and restore breastfeeding health.
  • Going back to work soon or need to pump your breastmilk? I can teach you all about pumping and storage.

I provide breastfeeding consults at your home and am available by phone. My initial phone consult is free. 

I offer a special 2 hour in-home consultation package for $75.  This includes follow-up phone, email and text support.  If a second in-home consultation is needed, the cost is $45 per hour.

Breastfeeding Support Visits

I understand that each family’s needs are unique. I  do my very best to offer a custom approach that will fit your family and your budget.  My initial phone consultation is free of charge.  

While breastfeeding is natural, it isn't always easy. A little bit of skilled breastfeeding support can make all the difference.
