Breastfeeding is the normal and optimal way to feed a baby, but it is not always easy, nor does it come "naturally" to some. This can be due to a multitude of factors which, once identified, can often be easily rectified so that both Mom and babe can have a positive breastfeeding experience.
As an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant, I work together with the Mom to come up with a workable plan to help her and her baby have a successful breastfeeding relationship. As I have many years experience working with new families, I bring with me knowledge of postpartum maternal physical and emotional needs, and all aspects of newborn care.
