I am currently supporting families in Orange County by providing in home visits. I have been serving the birth community in various roles since 2012, both in and out of the hospital setting. I have breastfed two children and navigated my own challenges such as painful latch, jaundice, low supply, tongue & lip ties, supplementation as well as postpartum depression and anxiety. I believe lactation is the ideal start for life earth side and feel blessed to have the opportunity to help families meet their goals!
My offerings begin even before your sweet babe joins us earth side. I provide small group and private (in-home) education that will give you a solid foundation for feeding your baby and prepare you to navigate your lactation experience with confidence.
I can visit you throughout the postpartum period to provide guidance and reassurance. I will help you determine what success looks like to YOU and cultivate a plan to make it happen.
I can provide lactation consultations as an IBCLC, offering clinical support where I will assess feeding effectiveness and collaborate with you to make a care plan to reach your goals. I may offer referrals to other providers to utilize a comprehensive approach and can provide your healthcare team with reports as needed.
Referrals to qualified providers are made with consideration of appropriate need, urgency, location, personality and budget concerns. I do not receive nor offer referral fees.
