When you hire me to assist you with breastfeeding support you can be assured that I have received proper education and am continuing on-going learning and experience underneath other health care professionals. I myself have over 30 months experience breastfeeding my own children and have struggled with breastfeeding problems. While I am not a medical professional and cannot diagnose, prescribe, or offer medical advice, I can work closely with your care provider to help provide breastfeeding support to meet your goals.
Upon initial consultation we will discuss what you are struggling with, whether it be latch issues, supply issues, etc and then come up with a plan. The initial consultation lasts anywhere from 1-2 hours and I usually recommend at least one subsequent visit to follow up and see how you and your baby(s) are doing.
I will be continuing to work towards my goal of becoming a Certified Lactation Consultant to provide Powell River's moms with more breastfeeding support. I am also a La Leche League Leader and highly recommend both pregnant and breastfeeding moms/dads to attend the meetings.They occur the last Monday of every month from 10AM-12PM at the Family Place in Town Centre Mall.
