Breastfeeding Education

BreastfeedingAs a holistic lactation consultant I aim to help you and your baby find and settle in to your own unique breastfeeding relationship based on my career of over 40 years of experience and education.

A lot goes into breastfeeding: energy, genetics, vitality, luck, culture, circumstance, and what happened in labor and birth. Each mother and each infant is an individual, and every mother 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?

Other Breastfeeding Problems

I can help you with other problems that can develop:

  • 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.  Regular follow-up by email or telephone is part of my care.

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 in Elkins Park, PA. I also can come to you in your home.

This  work is what I have loved doing for over 40 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.
