My passion is supporting parents in meeting their own individual feeding goals, whatever those goals might be.

I will listen to you, and will not pressure you or judge you. 

Lactation consultants are most known for helping with breastfeeding, but IBCLCs also specialize in many other aspects of maternal/baby care, including infant development, breast health, baby weight gain, pumping, formula and bottle-feeding, gassiness or other digestive concerns, weaning, and introducing solids.

I also specialize in working with breastfeeding issues related to oral restrictions, including the often mis-understood and under-recognized tongue tie. 

Let me know how I can support you.
