IBCLC Lactation Consultant Services

How can I help you?

As an IBCLC, I am well educated in lactation, infant feeding and oral function. This includes both breast and bottle. My job is to assist you in meeting your infant feeding goals by reassuring you and helping with current challenges. My approach is to ensure that you are a part of the decision making process. We come up with an evidence-based plan of care together and make sure that it is something you are confident in. I love checking in with you after consults just to make sure things are going well. If a change of course is needed we work through that together.
