“Breastfeeding reminds us of the universal truth of abundance; the more we give out, the more we are filled up, and that divine nourishment - the source from which we all draw -
is, like a mother's breast, ever full and ever flowing.”
― Sarah Buckley

Postpartum breastfeeding consult
I come to your home to help with any questions or concerns you may have. I am also available to come after the birth to help get early breastfeeding started. The ‘art’ of breastfeeding can take time to be comfortable with. The sooner breastfeeding can be well established the more you will enjoy your postpartum experience with your new baby. The MotherBaby bond is precious and a little support can go a long way. Some areas that new moms may need help with are latching, positioning, hand expressing, healing from birth and bonding. I can also help with assessing things that may effect the baby's sucking and breathing abilities, such as lip/toungue tie. I can help with nutrition support for the breastfeeding mother. Follow ups may be necessary and can be decided at the initial consult.

Postpartum support for the new family.
The perinatal period also includes those weeks and months after baby comes. I provide a safe place to ask questions, review your birth and support you as you learn about being a new parent. Often times families are so focused on the birth that they almost forget they are bringing home a brand new human. Perhaps your pregnancy and birth did not go as you expected and now you are unsure of what to do next. Healing and well-ness in the postpartum period can include learning about how to nutrition, anxiety, and support can all have an impact. If you would like to learn more please message. If it is the first week postpartum I can do home visits.
