Breastfeeding can be a comfortable habit in your life. That takes patience and practice, not pain. It’s a great investment in you and your baby’s long term health so let’s find what works for you and your baby.

Schedule an office visit through Anchored Women’s Health in Ellsworth, ME.
Home visits are available  through The Lactation Network.

A lactation consultation, office or home visit, includes time to discuss your concerns. We’ll review you and your baby’s health history and weigh your baby (before and after a feeding) at the visit. You’ll receive a written review of a plan we discussed. We can easily schedule a follow up visit.

You can bring a support person with you if you’d prefer. For your information, I’m up to date on the flu and Covid vaccines.

Most likely your insurance will cover lactation consultations, though it’s a good idea to check with them.

  • Aetna   • Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield

 Tummy Time! Method sessions are being offered through Ellsworth Adult Education. In the category of “Family”, search for Tummy Time!  This will be Monday mornings: October 9,16,23,30

TummyTime! Method is for babies up to four months old. It is a specific and gentle sequence of movements that encourages alignment and development of their neck, shoulders and back. It’s easy to do and easy to learn. For some babies with feeding difficulty, I have found this to be helpful. Learn about your baby’s development, enjoy time with your baby and meet other parents. 

Every family deserves support and time to talk, ask questions and learn at their own pace.  Contact me or call me at 617-435-0693.
