I am here for you.
Breastfeeding can be overwhelming at times.
With support and evidence based guidance, Mothers will find breastfeeding to be a beautiful outlet for bonding with their new baby and offer vast physical, financial, nutritional and health benefits.
I would be delighted to help you!
Lactation is my passion; something I fell into once I had my oldest daughter in 2009. After experiencing nursing struggles firsthand, I have made it my mission to help new Moms and babies overcome breastfeeding hurdles. I am a Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC) from The Academy of Lactation Policy & Practice,  Certified Newborn Care Specialist and a former Breastfeeding Peer Counselor. I have been an accredited Leader for La Leche League  since 2013. For 13 years I have had the privilege of helping hundreds of Mothers all over the US (Europe, The Caribbean & Russia, too!) nurse their babies with ease.

For Families in the Nocatee/Ponte Vedra Beach, Jacksonville, St Johns, St Augustine areas; I offer private in home consultations to assist in overcoming various Breastfeeding concerns. I come to you, on your schedule: because getting a new baby getting out of the house is hard enough! Together we will orchestrate a Plan that meets your individual goals.

“Jessica is amazing! She was our Doula for baby #3 and Baby #4. She was so attentive both times! She really, truly listened to me when I needed it most. She was always came with tons of ideas for my various pregnancy and breastfeeding worries and just overall compassionate every time I would speak with her. Very knowledgeable! Of all 4 children, my best births and breastfeeding experiences were with Jessica as our Doula!  Always professional, responsive and on the ball!
