I am an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. I work with new parents in the New York City area, up through Dutchess County.
Babies are born with a number of reflexes to help them nurse, but that doesn't mean it's always easy. Parents and babies need to learn how to make the breast/chest feeding relationship work. In times past we grew up in communities, where friends and family would offer support for birth and infant feeding. There were plenty of people around to tend to new families and to offer help if feeding 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 ILCA, USLCA, NYLCA and IATP.
