Breastfeeding Support

You are not alone on this Breastfeeding Journey.

Breastfeeding can be overwhelming and challenging. It can also be a beautiful bonding experience. Learn some basic tools with breastfeeding support and guidance so you can relax into this journey and be more successful in the long run.

Lactation Specialist Support Visits

Early education and intervention can prevent some common challenges mothers go through when breastfeeding their babies. I provide one on one and group breastfeeding classes to help you understand what is normal in the breastfeeding realm, what is natural and what is instinctual.

I also make home visits to address some common concerns you may have such as proper latch and position, engorgement, milk supply, pumping and storage. I can refer you to a Lactation Consultant if your situation is more complex.

I really feel it begins with being educated and recieving early guidance to minimize many breastfeeding challenges.

I am also hosting the Virtual Breastfeeding Cafes on Sundays from 1230-2 pm during Covid until they will return to in person cafes that take place throughout Sonoma County. Email me for zoom link. For more info check out my community resources page or https://betterbeginningsforbabies.com
