A Lactation Consultant/Postpartum Care Nurse can get you and your baby off to a great start!
Having a baby is one of the most joyous moments of your life but it can also be quite intimidating. How do I take care of this little one? Will I be able to breastfeed? Do I need a lactation consultant? How do I take care of me? Work, family, childcare and just figuring out how to nurture and care for your new baby are all important issues. It's a whole new world.
I can help! As a Registered Nurse and Certified Lactation Consultant, I can give you the confidence you need to take care of your new baby from the minute you get home. Being a Registered Nurse has allowed me to work as a Lactation Consultant in hospitals and medical clinics. So when I'm seeing you at home, I'm well aware of the experience you may have had at the hospital and your and your baby's transition to home. Let me help ease your mind and show you how to make the transition to becoming a mother more enjoyable and less stressful.
I use a gentle, supportive, family-centered approach specializing in:
- Breastfeeding problems & concerns
- Private breastfeeding classes
- Infant weight gain
- Returning to work
- Newborn care
- Mom's physical and emotional needs
- Postpartum depression
- Working as a "team member" with your and your baby's physician
You will have greater success and feel more confident if we work together before problems arise. We will work together to make your goals a reality!
