PHILOSOPHY OF CARE
Babies are born with an instinctual motivation to feed.
Yet despite this, there can be SO MANY barriers to successful infant feeding. ...situational barriers, anatomical barriers, lack of support and information....
And it can be hard.
But it can also be beautiful, and enjoyable, and rewarding.
Seeking help if you or your baby are having difficulties with feeding is so important.
Establishing a relationship with a knowledgeable professional can be a critical step in your journey to reach your feeding goals- whatever they may be.
If you are struggling with breastfeeding, with pumping, or with bottle feeding...
I can help you.
WHY SEE AN IBCLC?
IBCLC's are infant feeding specialists.
IBCLC stands for International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. IBCLC is the highest designation of lactation support that an individual can receive. IBCLC certification requires extensive academic education and hundreds of hours of hands on experience. IBCLCs work as members of the healthcare team, offering comprehensive assessments, detailed plans of care, experience backed referrals, diligent follow up care, whole-hearted encouragement, and genuine emotional support.
IBCLCs can work with breastfeeding, chestfeeding, breast milk feeding, and formula feeding families.
