Guiding you and your baby’s health throughout your pregnancy is crucial. Let’s meet for a prenatal visit to arm you with the knowledge and confidence you need going into delivery.
I offer a variety of services to help new parents achieve their feeding goals, including in-home consultations, virtual consultations, and assistance in obtaining a hospital grade breast pump.
I specialize in low milk supply, oversupply, engorgement, sore nipples, weaning, mastitis, inverted or flat nipples, babies with gas, reflux, pacing issues, pumping, flange fit, insuffucient glandular tissue, returning to work, breast refusal, bottle refusal, tethered oral tissues (lip/tongue/buccal ties), head turning preferences, preference for one breast, herbal galactogogues, introduction to solid foods and meeting milestones.
I have been an Internationally Board Certified Lactation Consultant since 2015. Prior to becoming an IBCLC, I was a Certified Lactation Counselor since 2006. My passion for breastfeeding truly came when I breast fed my first child, born in 2007. I have three children and eleven years of personal breastfeeding experience. I joined Rush Copley Medical Center as a Lactation Counselor in 2013 and held this position until transitioning to an IBCLC in 2015, further adding to my expertise in NICU, Pediatrics, and outpatient complex cases. I have helped thousands of parents reach their goals over the last decade. I am an active USLCA member and have had advanced training in TOTs (tethered oral tissues), as well as completion of the holistic course, the IBCLC Masters Class.
I am sub-contracted with Midwives Care, LLC since 2019 and North Shore Lactation since March 2022.
After reaching out, if you have not already, I will encourage you to please fill out the insurance eligibility form from The Lactation Network.
We will have confirmation of your coverage within 24 hrs. Most PPOs are covered at 100% for at least 6 visits, in some cases unlimited visits.
I will email you a ten minute health history intake form and consents to be completed prior to our consultation and request that you feed baby 90 minutes to 2 hours prior to our consult. An initial consult is 75-90 minutes, a followup consult is 60 minutes.
I understand the challenges and joys of breastfeeding, and I am here to provide you with the support and guidance you need to make the most of this special time with your baby.
At After Hours Breastfeeding Support, the mission is to provide new and expectant parents with the support and education they need to make informed decisions about breast/chest feeding. Every dyad deserves a positive feeding experience, and I am here to help make that a reality.
