PHILOSOPHY OF CARE
Babies are born to breastfeed.
And although breastfeeding is the biological norm, that does not mean that it is always easy.
There can be SO MANY barriers to breastfeeding.
And it can be hard.
But it can also be beautiful, and enjoyable, and rewarding.
Seeking help if you are having difficulties is so important.
Establishing a relationship with a knowledgeable and professional lactation consultant can be a critical step in your journey to reach your feeding goals- whatever they may be.
If you are struggling, I can help you.
Nourishment through breastfeeding...
it's not all about the milk.
