Lactation Consultation & Breastfeeding Support

Perhaps you have some general questions, or you may be struggling with sore nipples, a plugged duct, a baby who is fussy at the breast or you need some help figuring out your pump and bottles, whatever it may be, sometimes a new Mama just needs some extra support with breastfeeding.

 

As a Breastfeeding Counselor, I provide a thorough assessment and gentle guidance for effective breastfeeding, as well as identifying and troubleshooting obstacles, and making any necessary referrals.

 

A typical consultation includes:
  • Discussion of questions, concerns and breastfeeding goals

  • Assessment of Mother and Baby’s health histories.

  • Assessment of Baby’s oral anatomy and a Suck Assessment

  • Assessment of a Breastfeeding session

  • Assistance with positioning and latch

  • A comprehensive individualized plan of care 

  • Referrals to other health care providers or community resources as necessary

  • A written summary of our visit along with handouts and links to helpful videos

  • Brief follow up phone calls and texts are included free of charge.


I would love to support you in meeting your breastfeeding goals.  I offer home visits to new families, as well as the option for an office visit at Elevate Wellness Center.  I often can see clients the same day or the following day, if a time is not listed on my calendar, please reach out via email or phone if you would like to schedule something sooner. 

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or to book a visit!
