Prenatal breastfeeding education is an integral part of your preparation to have a baby; families who take a prenatal breastfeeding class have been shown to have better success initiating breastfeeding and significantly longer breastfeeding relationships.

I am a Certificated Lactation Educator Counselor through UCSD and have worked hands on with many birth and postpartum clients in initiating breastfeeding and correcting some of the most common breastfeeding issues. Prenatal breastfeeding courses and personalized help after the birth of you baby will address:
-Anatomy and Physiology of Breastfeeding
-Positioning and Latch
-Is My Baby Getting Enough?
-Your Breastfeeding Plan
-Pumps and Equipment
-Returning to Work/School
-Maternal Nutrition/Medications/Birth Control
Breastfeeding is normal and natural, but is definitely not always easy. Compassionate local lactation assistance is available and affordable; I serve the Westside, South Bay, and Long Beach areas with home visits. Early breastfeeding help can be essential to success!
Some of the most common concerns in the first months of breastfeeding your baby are having ‘enough milk’, latch issues, engorgement, sore nipples, and plugged ducts. As a CLEC, I am qualified and happy to assist mothers and babies with theses issues in the normal course of lactation. At a lactation counseling visit I will take a look at the breastfeeding relationship and work with you on positioning, latch, recognizing active nursing, and more. Before you leave I will answer any questions you have and we will make a plan together to address your breastfeeding concerns. After your visit I will follow up with you via email to track your progress and offer more suggestions as needed.
I assist families privately in their home at a rate of $50 for the first hour and $30 for each additional hour (first visits can take around 2 hours). Partners are welcome and encouraged to participate in lactation counseling visits if they so desire.
