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.

Consider a prenatal class. Get answers to your specific questions and assuage your worries. Bring your support people (friends, grandparents…) to the classes, too.  I provide clear information and allow plenty of time for your questions.

  • Understand how your body makes milk for your child and a baby’s instinct to feed.
  • Learn what’s most important in the first two weeks.
  • Understand why some common myths are counter productive.
  • Review reliable resources for information and support.

I also offer Tummy Time! Method sessions.

I first saw how this was helpful for babies with feeding difficulties. Babies do need to move their bodies and spend time on their tummies. Gently help your baby unfurl and align their bodies. Learn about your baby’s natural development and specific movements that ease their alignment and comfort. Equally important, this is a pleasant time to connect with your baby.

Tummy Time! sessions are each 45 minutes long. If in person, it’s a time to socialize with other infants and parents. Otherwise, we connect by Zoom.  Contact me to schedule something.

As I’ve met with families over twenty years, it’s always been true that time to talk and ask questions is so valuable. Equally important is a place to meet other parents. We’ll gauge the safety of that as virus rates change.

Every family needs a calm, safe environment to adjust and grow. It’s fundamental to our health. Let’s advocate together for paid family leave policies and insurance coverage for support.
