As an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), my goal is to provide the greatest support and assistance to you and your family on your individual feeding journey. Breastfeeding may be natural, but it isn't always easy. Let’s work together to make your experience amazing.
Preparing to Breastfeed
1:1 In-home Antenatal Education Session
The thought of breastfeeding and everything it entails can be overwhelming with information coming at you from every angle. Breastfeeding preparation can make all the difference in guiding you and your partner in what is to come and to help you focus on what you want on your breastfeeding journey.
Preparing to Breastfeed is created specifically for you and your needs and goals. It provides a thorough education of breastfeeding, what to expect in pregnancy, the early days with your newborn, and throughout your feeding journey.
Preparing to Breastfeed is provided in the comfort of your own home where you have the opportunity to ask any and all questions you have. The session will take approximately 4 hours and you may choose to complete the class in one day or space the class over a couple of weeks.
