Throughout history women have had those learned women to teach and guide them through motherhood.
I can help guide you and your baby through this learning stage and to weaning when ready.

Did you know that it takes a baby 3 weeks to Learn to breastfeed?
A newborn baby is born with instincts and senses. They have to use these to learn to breastfeed.
You both learn together.

My breastfeeding story:
I did breastfeed twins. They were born early at 34 weeks, had to be supplemented with formula as that was what was available then. I pumped and fed them every 2 hours. No one taught you how to breastfeed back then and no one in my family had breastfed. I kept trying and finally got it. Went on to tandem nurse them for 2 years. Looking back and knowing what I know now, a lot of the discomfort and questions I had, could of been helped by having a knowledgeable person to turn too.

 This is one of the reasons I specialized in Lactation. I became a nurse first and worked in a hospital OB unit as a mother and baby nurse. This experience has become a big part of my knowledge base when working with new mothers and babies. I also became the Lactation coordinator at that hospital, worked with many different mothers and babies at different stages of lactation.
 
I have developed a few techniques for increasing milk supply and for helping mothers prepare to return to work or school.

It all starts with knowledge, guidance and support.
