Lactation Counseling

Prenatal Consult $50 (included with birth support) : Questions, concerns, deciphering between myths and facts and developing a breastfeeding plan: What are your expectations and and how to address any potential suprises.  

Initial Postpartum Visit $50 (included with birth support) : We often get a lot of support form our providers immediately after the birth.  However, once  you settle in a few days later, questions and concerns can creep up.  Schedule this initial visit in the comforts of your own home to address any questions you may have

Follow Up $40: Assistance with any further support and needs that may arise as your baby grows such as pumping, returning to work, and anything else. 

I aim to bring a warm and calming presence to all my visits with a family. Throughout your pregnancy, birth and beyond, I want you to feel respected, empowered, nurtured, and confident. I will provide unconditional and consistent support.  I always encourage families to truly honor what their. hearts want and what is best for their individual family.
