Lactation Counseling Services

     Breastfeeding should not hurt ... ever! That's hard to believe, isn't it? Proper positioning and latch from the beginning is what prevents what we have been told all of our lives is normal nipple pain from feeding a new baby. It should not be the norm. Please ask for a visit from the lactation consultant at your birthplace as soon as possible if you have any question about your baby's latch. Follow up support once you go home can be a great boost for a great start as well. The first two weeks of breastfeeding a new baby are vital to establishing an enjoyable breastfeeding relationship and a plentiful milk supply. I understand how difficult it can be to get help if it requires getting yourself and baby ready to leave the house. As a Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC), I have been trained to observe, assist and counsel normal challenges that may come with breastfeeding. Most issues can be resolved with adjustments to positioning and latch and with emotional encouragement. If I find any issues beyond my scope of practice, I will refer to the appropriate resources. If you would like an in-home support session, the fee is $40.00 per visit, due at the end of the session. Please call if you would like an appointment. My services are available Mon-Sat, 8am-2:30pm; exceptions may be made if necessary. Please feel free to contact me as well if you need phone support (no charge).
