I hold the Certified Lactation Counselor® designation from The Academy of Lactation Policy and Practice (ALPP). ALPP is a non-profit organization that provides a national certification program in breastfeeding and human lactation for nurses, physicians, dietitians, WIC personnel, peer counselors, independent lactation counselors and others.
I have completed over 300 hours (L-CERPs) of training and education approved by the Lactation Education Accreditation and Approval Review Committee (LEAARC) in the field of breastfeeding counseling. I have well over 400 additional hours of direct client care experience as a lactation counselor and a doula.
I love to make home visits for new babies, latch troubles, or pumping prep, and I book 90-minute appointments, so we have plenty of time to work through your unique story. One two-hour home visit is $75, and I offer virtual consults for $45 on Zoom.
I understand that not everything is intuitive for new parents. I have lots of strategies for common breastfeeding questions and concerns, as well as access to some fantastic scientific evidence-based resources that I love to share!
If you are experiencing fever, acute pain, or a medical emergency, please contact your physician or medical care provider right away! I can not diagnose or prescribe.
