However you started BF and whatever your goal, I help you to:
- Overcome the feeling of being overwhelmed -
- Work through difficulties
- Enjoy breastfeeding
And along the way, you'll discover how breastfeeding works for you and your baby. Breastfeeding is intuitive and natural, but often it's not easy. If you are nursing and it hurts, or you think you don't have enough milk, or your baby is having difficulty breastfeeding,
I can help you. I've helped thousands of women over nearly two decades
There are literally hundreds of things that can contribute to painful, problematic or ineffective nursing. It can be hard to discern exactly what needs attention first.
Also, If your baby is sleepy, confused and/or clearly hungry, you will be scared and worried. And, when you are feeling frightened and uncertain, you may decide breastfeeding is just not worth it. In addition, most medical professionals don't understand how breasts work. They tend to think of medicalized solutions and not in ways that support breastfeeding.
First, let me tell you that your baby already knows how to breastfeed.
What I do is help you learn how to let your baby breastfeed, have an abundant milk supply and enjoy breastfeeding.
Breastfeeding is not just about feeding your baby. It is a way to mother that nourishes you, too. While some mothers find it amazing, intuitive, easy, natural and satisfying from day 1, many women struggle a little (or a lot) in the beginning.
You may already be successfully breastfeeding and just have questions.
- You are going back to work or thinking about pumping.
- You want to know about starting solids or weaning.
- or maybe You are wondering if something, you or your baby does, is normal.
- It is OK if you are emotional, crying all the time or you feel too embarrassed to call. Mothering is hard!
If you want to breastfeed, you probably can.
I will do my best to listen and help you find a way to feel better.
It is OK if you think your problem is silly, too small or not important. If you are worried, it is appropriate to ask for reassurance and guidance.
It is OK if YOU think it's a hopeless cause. I have seen hundreds of so-called hopeless cases turn completely around, sometimes within hours or days, and have happy endings.
