Currently providing both in person and virtual lactation appointments

In person appointments are happen in-home. These are by appointment only. You will need to specify ‘in-home’ and add your address if you book online.

My clients come to me for support with

Latch Challenges: Your baby has a shallow or painful latch. You’re using a nipple shield and/or having trouble positioning them or any other concerns you have about their latch.

Milk Supply: You’re struggling with low supply and need help to increase your supply

Starting Solids: You’re not sure when or how to start or what it means for your milk supply

Prenatal Education: You are expecting a baby and want to learn more about breastfeeding. You have questions about milk supply, pumping or milk storage

Pumping: You’re currently pumping and need some support and answers to your questions including bottle feeding

Feeding Older babies: If your 4+ month old is going through a milestone that’s affecting feeding I can help. Through teething, biting, distraction and more including support for weaning.

I will help you through your challenges and provide you with reassurance and support

You are in the right place
