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
  • Preemies
  • Twins / Multiples
  • Tandem Nursing
  • 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!
