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. I have not worked as a nurse since coming to Canada in 1995, as I have been fortunate to stay at home to raise our 2 daughters, who are now teenagers.  I have always enjoyed postnatal education, and since 2009, I have been privileged to be able to support 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 do not give medical advice, but am able to make and suggest appropriate referrals within the community.
