If you are experiencing difficulties with feeding your baby, I can help.

You, your baby, and your family deserve support.

Families consult IBCLCs for many reasons, including:

Nursing a baby is a natural process, but it does not always come naturally. The sooner you begin troubleshooting feeding issues, the more quickly and effectively you can solve them. 

Your nursing journey plays a vital role in the lifetime health of you, your baby, and your family. But you don't need to make this journey alone!

A Note on Telehealth and Home Visits

Almost all lactation issues CAN be successfully addressed by telehealth with appropriately skilled providers. The current public health situation has motivated many lactation providers to enhance our skills in this area, and I have seen great results in my practice achieved solely through telehealth visits. I am now fully vaccinated and feel comfortable making home visits using Covid Guidelines, but am still happy to conduct both initial and follow up visits via live video which can be a great option for many situations. Please contact us to discuss any questions you may have about telehealth in your specific situation.

I am constantly studying the newest evidence based information to help support families!
