Breastfeeding your baby will bring you a joy that words cannot express.  The feeling you get when you nourish your baby at your breast and see your baby grow and thrive on your breastmilk is life changing.  Breastfeeding is the natural way to feed your baby, and I encourage you to make this choice because there is no substitute for mother's milk.  It is species specific, making it the best nutrition on earth for your baby.  That said, I want mothers to remember to go easy on yourselves because while it is the natural way to feed baby, it's also a learned skill on your part as well as baby's.  Lactation consultants like myself exist because of this learning curve.  It's different for every mombaby unit, which is why it's important to get professional assistance during your own initial learning process and beyond.

Mothering through breastfeeding is the ideal means of meeting your baby’s need for nourishment and security and a woman’s transition into motherhood.

I am an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant with advanced classes in infant latch and suck issues.
Private Lactation Consultations are available in my home office or in the comfort of your home. I cover all of San Diego and the surrounding areas.
There can be a wide variety of issues you are experiencing that I can help with. Many newer moms can be unaware of all the things we can help you get through. Take a look at this page for some help determining if you would benefit from my lactation services.

Pain is a signal that something is wrong and you should seek help sooner than later.  Be assured that with professional help, obstacles like nipple pain or low milk supply can be overcome. I will support you and help make breastfeeding as easy and problem-free as possible.

I am here to help you reach your goals, whatever they may be. Remember, Breastfeeding should never be painful.
