Lactation Support

Feel Empowered Throughout Your Breastfeeding Journey

As you journey into parenthood, wanting only the best for your baby is natural.  The human body is truly amazing and produces the most nutrient rich food available for them.  As your lactation educator, I will help you give your baby one of the greatest gifts possible.  The health benefits as well as bonding for both the mother and baby, are far reaching.  Breastfeeding can be overwhelming and challenging, but with my knowledge, experience and support it can be an empowering journey.

Our Lactation Educator Promise

As your lactation educator, I promise to provide support and education to help you reach your breastfeeding goals.

Each family has different needs and wants when it comes to feeding their baby.  There are many factors to consider when making this decision, which can make it a difficult one.  With my dedicated and individualized support I hope to guide you to a more confident and empowered breastfeeding relationship. We will create a plan that works specifically for your family, as breastfeeding is not a one size fits all experience.

Each and every step on this golden journey brings a feeling of empowerment.

Your Lactation Educator

The prenatal session offers the opportunity to discuss all the specifics that pertain to your journey, before it begins.  Once we get to know each other, I know where to focus my energy for your immediate desires and needs, and you feel comfortable with me supporting your family.  Are you heading back to work, want to build up a supply, still nursing another child, need recommendations on positions, pumps, or bottles, need to learn how to use a pump, want to know the do's and do not's for success, the list goes on.  We will address whatever your individual needs are at the time.  You will learn the many benefits my education and experience can bring to you during this time.

The in home session allows the opportunity for me to pay attention to every detail and offer guidance and techniques to get and keep breastfeeding on the right track.  Revisiting the goals, as well as addressing new questions or concerns that arise once you begin breastfeeding, provide the tailored support that creates successes.  I will create a detailed support plan and my support continues for the extent of time you feel is needed, as teething, food introduction, weaning, etc., may require additional support.  The follow-up visit is important to ensure that any changes, as they happen so frequently with a new baby, will be adapted to successfully by mom and baby.

To make communication between us simple, I have a direct email and phone number for you to text or call.  As your lactation educator, you can call, text or email me at any time to ask questions, share news, or just chat.

Your Journey with Your Lactation Educator Always Includes

Resources

Availability throughout pregnancy and beyond for evidence-based information and resources as well as emotional support for you and your partner. We provide resources and recommendations to all things birth-related including birth education, lactation, prenatal massage, parent groups, chiropractors etc., and offer a lending library of books.

Prenatal Support

A time for us to get to know one another but also to help you feel prepared. I tailor prenatal sessions to your specific needs and package selected, but always discuss and provide a variety of evidenced-based information regarding lactation for both mom and  baby. We will talk about what you might expect in the hospital, once at home, give tips on ways to promote rest for healing, and foods beneficial to healing and milk production.  We will also discuss on how you might mentally prepare and manage all the changes that occur during such a transitional time.

Family Support

Adding to the family, whether this is your first child or fifth, creates changes to the family dynamic.  Although breastfeeding is often seen as occurring strictly between the mother and baby, I will help each member of the family see all the ways they can specifically help support them, which are vital to breastfeeding success.  Family walks together on this golden path.

Continued Support

After our in home support is wrapped up, do not worry I am still your lactation support!  It will continue for your family as long as you wish.  As things change, you may have questions that arise, discover a new need, want to share milestones, or just chat for reassurance.  Whatever it is, I am just a message or phone call away!  Your breastfeeding journey is one I will excitedly continue to travel on with you!

You deserve to have experienced guides supporting you on your journey.
