Lactation Support

Please feel free to contact me if you are interested in one-on-one prenatal or postpartum lactation education and support. I am able to offer information and assistance on issues that could arise during the normal course of lactation and breastfeeding/chestfeeding, including education and preparation during pregnancy; latch and positioning help; and bottlefeeding, pumping, and back-to-work-or-school strategies. We can arrange for a home visit (at a rate of $40/hour), or I can refer you to a board-certified lactation consultant (IBCLC), if needed.

I am a certified postpartum doula (through DTI), and part of that training included instruction in lactation/breastfeeding support.

I completed the UCSD CLEC training course taught by Gini Baker (IBCLC), and earned a Lactation Educator/Counselor certificate. Read more about the requirements for that program on Gini's site:
