Lactation Consultant

Our in-home lactation consultants work with you to develop a personalized plan for care and get all of your lactation questions answered. During our sessions, we will review your history and birth story, address any questions and provide support during feeding.

Our lactation consultants have experience helping new parents address all of the following:

Positioning and latching difficulties

Low milk supply

Plugged ducts and mastitis

Preparing to go back to work


Breast and nipple soreness

Poor weight gain

Bottle-feeding and pumping


Colic and reflux

Private Lactation Class

 For parents who want to plan ahead, we also offer a prenatal in-home lactation class. This includes an hour of breastfeeding instruction and a leave-behind packet full of information.
