Lactation Support

I  have 18 years of experience in working with newborns, new moms, multiples and preschoolers. Lactation is my passion; something I just fell into once I had my oldest daughter. I know first hand just how hard Breastfeeding can be.

Breastfeeding/Chest-feeding can be tricky, stressful and overwhelming at times. With some Support and 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/Chest-feeding 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.

Your Journey is yours. I support you!
