I am here for you.
Breastfeeding can be tricky, stressful and overwhelming at times.
With support and evidence based guidance, Mothers 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 the Birth Doula package, at no additional fee.
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 from The Academy of Lactation Policy & Practice and have been an accredited Leader for La Leche League  since 2013. I have had the privilege of helping hundreds of Mothers all over the US (and even in Europe, The Caribbean and Russia!) nurse their babies.

For Families in the Nocatee/Ponte Vedra Beach, Jacksonville, St Johns, St Augustine areas; 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 goals. Virtual support is also available.

This Journey is yours. I support you!
