Personal lactation services include prenatal education, postpartum hospital and home visits, ongoing lactation support by phone or email, and guidance for parents as they transition back to work.

Private lactation consultations are offered in the comfort of your own home. Home visits include:

Mother’s milk is all natural, but breastfeeding does not always come naturally. We provide the expertise needed to help with infant feeding issues such as:

  • Prematurity

  • Difficult latch
  • Jaundice
  • Slow weight gain
  • Tongue-tie
  • Cleft lip/palate

  • Reflux
  • Twins

We also provide mothers with guidance and support when they encounter lactation challenges such as:

  • Delayed milk production
  • Low milk supply
  • Nipple pain
  • Inverted nipples
  • Plugged Ducts
  • Engorgement
  • Mastitis
  • Oversupply
  • Candida
  • Raynaud’s
  • Previous breast surgery

Breast milk is the perfect first food for infants, and builds the foundation for a strong immune system to protect against illness and infection. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of life, and continued breastfeeding for one year and beyond. We understand the value, the joy, as well as the many challenges of breastfeeding, and have the experience and expertise needed to help you reach your breastfeeding goals.
