I am an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant, a Registered Lactation Consultant, and a DONA International certified birth doula, serving expectant and new parents in New York City.
Babies are born with a number of reflexes to help them breastfeed, but that doesn't mean it's always an easy task. Both mothers and babies need to learn how to make the breastfeeding relationship work. Sometimes that process isn't something they can navigate on their own. In times past we grew up in communities, where friends and family would offer support for birth and infant feeding. There were people around to tend to new families and to offer help if breastfeeding was off to a rocky start.
As a mother of three, I understand the challenges facing new parents. I offer reliable non-judgmental support for all types of families, births, and infant feeding scenarios. I want to help you to reach your goals.
I am a member of NYLCA and ILCA.
