Breastfeeding can be a comfortable habit in your life. That takes patience and practice, not pain. Let’s find what works for you and your baby.

A lactation consult is time dedicated to discussing your breastfeeding questions. Being able to sort through all the information can be very helpful. I provide clear information to families and also to those who support them. A prenatal breastfeeding consult can assuage a lot of your concerns and help you get off to a good start.

  • Understand how your body makes milk for your child and a baby’s instinct to feed.
  • Learn why some common myths are counter productive.
  • Review reliable resources for information and support.

Together we’ll create a practical plan that works for you. Friends, doulas, health care providers, grandparents, partners can be a helpful support for a breastfeeding parent. I invite you to take classes, too. Each of you are an important influence.

It’s especially important to get help if

  • feeding is painful, you are uncomfortable.
  • latching on is difficult.
  • your baby is not soiling enough diapers.
  • your baby is not gaining weight or is losing weight.

I also offer Tummy Time! Method sessions. This is a great way to gently help your baby unfurl and align their bodies. In three sessions, each 45 minutes long, you’ll learn specific movements that respect your baby’s natural progression of development. It’s a pleasant time to connect with your baby. These sessions are Zoom consults for the time being.

For over twenty years, I made home visits for postpartum care and lactation consultations. That sit-down together time was valuable experience. However, during this  pandemic, I offer phone support and Zoom consults. You can contact me or call (cell) 617-435-0693.I look forward to talking with you.
