About me

Welcome to The Nurturing Touch

Caring Support for mothers and newborns

My name is Kylie Field and I am an International Board Certifield Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) and a certified Postpartum Doula (DONA - Doulas of North America).  I am also a certified Infant Massage Instructor (IAIM - International Association of Infant Massage) and teach group classes at Nurtured Products for Parenting Store.  I serve families in the greater Halifax area, Nova Scotia.   I trained as a Registered Nurse in South Africa, in a comprehensive program that included General Nursing, Midwifery, Psychiatry and Public Health, and moved to Canada in 1995.  Since 2009, I have used my love of supporting  families in the postpartum period as a Postpartum doula and since 2016, as a Board Certified Lactation Consultant. I have been privileged to be able to support many new Moms feel confident in their mothering role.

 

I am experienced and well educated in breastfeeding and infant care.  I provide caring, individualized support and nurture the whole family as they integrate the newborn into their lives.  As a Lactation Consultant, I work together with the Mom to come up with a workable plan to help her and her baby have a positive and successful breastfeeding experience.  I have knowledge of postpartum maternal physical and emotional needs, and all aspects of newborn care.  I have done further training in Cranial Nerve Dysfunction in the precrawling baby, tongue tie assessment and oral sucking exercises for infants and TummyTime™ Method. 

I do not give medical advice, but am able to make and suggest appropriate referrals within the community.

Mother care, support and guidance. Listening to and help with processing your birth story. Breastfeeding and Infant feeding support and counselling….

Massaging your baby has many health benefits. It is also fun and provides your baby with a sense of security and physical comfort.
