Lactation Consultations - Breastfeeding Education:

I encourage mothers to seek help for breastfeeding before the baby is born to clarify questions and concerns as well as create a feeding plan to implement immediately after delivery. I offer specialized assistance on the first breastfeeding moments and during the first few days after birth to alleviate concerns and address complications such as pain, soreness, milk supply, weight gain, twins or multiples, etc.
