I have 20+ years of experience in working with newborns, new moms, multiples and preschoolers. Lactation is my passion; something I fell into once I had my oldest daughter in 2009. I know first hand just how hard Nursing can be. I am a Certified Lactation Counselor from The Academy of Lactation Policy & Practice. and have been an accredited Leader for La Leche League since 2013.
Breastfeeding can be tricky, stressful and overwhelming at times. With support and evidence based guidance, Parents will find breastfeeding to be something absolutely wonderful; a beautiful outlet for bonding with your new baby. I would be delighted to help you! Lactation Support is included in my Doula Packages, at no additional fee.
For parents in the Nocatee/Ponte Vedra Beach, Jacksonville, St Augustine, Florida area; I offer private in home consultations to assist in overcoming your Breastfeeding hurdles. I come to your home, on your schedule, because when you have a new baby getting out of the house is hard enough! Together we will orchestrate a Plan that meets your individual Breastfeeding goals. Virtual support is also available.
Your Journey is yours. I support you!
