Breastfeeding Education

BreastfeedingAs a holistic lactation consultant I aim to help you and your baby become comfortable in your own unique breastfeeding relationship.

A lot goes into breastfeeding: anatomy, energy, genetics, vitality, luck, culture, circumstance, and what happened in labor and birth. Each parent and each infant are individuals, and every parent and infant has a unique relationship. That’s a lot to discover together.

Breastfeeding is a relationship; it is far more than the sum of a baby’s feeds, diapers and weight gain. I specialize in encouraging and rehabilitating that precious relationship.

Even though breastfeeding is the most natural thing the world, the skills have to be learned. New mothers wonder:

  • How will I do it, coming home a day or two after giving birth?
  • How will I know things are okay?Breastfeeding
  • Am I making enough milk?
  • What if my baby hasn’t yet breastfed?
  • Why isn’t breastfeeding comfortable and easy?
  • Why doesn’t my baby like me? Or my milk?

Other Breastfeeding Problems

I can help you with other situations:

  • Are you wanting to  chest/body feed?
  • Does your back hurt?
  • Does the baby feel like your baby?
  • Was breastfeeding going well, and is now suddenly painful?
  • Is your baby gaining enough weight?
Is your baby fussy?
  • Do you still dream of a breastfeeding relationship, even after many months of bottle-feeding and pumping?

Experienced guidance, practical advice, and encouragement can relieve anxiety and stress.  My fee includes follow-up by email, telephone, or videochat.

The Holistic Approach

I practice many different styles of healing: homeopathy, craniosacral therapy, infant massage and aromatherapy. I blend all of these modalities in my holistic lactation consultant office. I also can come to you in your home.

This  work is what I have loved doing for nearly 50 years, is what I still love doing, and expect to keep loving as long as I live. I can’t imagine retiring, as I get better and better every year.

I am delighted to work with all families, and am committed to do my best for ALL who desire encouragement and practical advice for their lactation journey.
