Clinical Feeding Support
in Your Own Home
in Columbia County & Beyond...
Home Visits (**and now Telehealth Consultations anywhere with internet**) in the Upper Hudson Valley & Southern Capital District
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:
Prenatal Feeding Education and Preparation
A nursing "check-up" for reassurance and help avoiding future issues
Pain While Nursing
Slow / No Weight Gain
Low Milk Supply
Baby Won't Latch
Twins / Multiples
Tongue Ties / Tethered Oral Tissue
Breastfeeding/ Chestfeeding After Breast / Top Surgery
Inducing Lactation or Relactation for Adoptive or non-gestational Parents
Assistance with any of your own Unique Breastfeeding, Chestfeeding, or Human Milk Feeding Goals
Breastfeeding 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. During the Covid pandemic, in most cases we begin with telehealth appointments to ensure everyone's safety, but may in some instances consider at home visits subsequently if they seem necessary. Please contact us to discuss any questions you may have about telehealth in your specific situation.
