Breastfeeding / Lactation Services
I am a Certified Breastfeeding Counselor through Childbirth International. I have additional experience helping many new moms and babies in the hospital as an RN and also in a pediatric clinic. I have exceeded all requirements for the IBCLC boards, but have not taken the exam yet due to personal choice.
I offer home visits to those in need of services (Face to face visits are charged a minimum of 1 hour) - Phone/Text/Email advice pricing is still to be determined.
I will usually return breastfeeding-related phone calls/emails/texts within 4 hours of the initial call, and schedule a visit once an over-the-phone assessment has been made.
Some things I can help with are:
- engorgement/milk production issues (over/under supply)
- pain while nursing
- baby-weight gain
- feeding cues
- Tongue and lip ties
- pumping / milk storage
- return-to-work plans and weaning.
- Tongue / Lip Tie Asssessment
- Referral to IBCLC Lactation Consultant if needed.
