Lactation Consultation Services

Breastfeeding your baby is a precious gift. While it is a natural instinct for you and your baby to breastfeed, it is a practiced skill. Every mother has the potential to succeed and make it a wonderful experience.

As a Board Certified Lactation Consultant, I provide guidance with:

•Attachment and Positioning
•Optimizing your milk supply
•Nipple and breast pain/soreness
•Interpreting nursing behaviors
•Resolving challenges such as plugged ducts, mastitis, and thrush
•Nursing your pre-term infant
•Breastfeeding after breast surgery
•Assistance with pumping, milk storage, and bottle-feeding
•Preparing to return to work/school and continuing to nurse

I provide support in the comfort of your home in San Francisco and surrounding Bay Area.
