In Home Consultation
During a home visit I will get a detailed medical history for mother, baby and discuss the birthing process. I will weight the baby on my professional scale. We will go over your current concerns and goals for feeding. I am here to support you and your goals. I will observe the entire feed, if possible re weight the baby for a weighted feed. During this process I will take detailed notes, which I will leave with you at the end of the visit. After the visit, I will send my report over the necessary medical providers. Typically I send a follow up text message 24-48 hours after the visit, checking in. You are welcome to message as much as needed, I am here to support your breastfeeding relationship.
In home consultations done in the comfort of your home. I am willing to travel 40 minutes from downtown Milford. Typically I travel in Wayne, Oakland, Livingston and Genesee county

Who I Am
International Board Certified Lactation Consultant
As a International Board Certified Lactation Consultant, I understand the wait and frustration of needing help but not knowing where to turn to first. I am here to help address your concerns and accomplish your goals.
I entered into the world of lactation shortly after my first son was born. I needed a IBCLC to fix our breastfeeding relationship and that experience changed my career path.
La Leche League taught me so much of what I know about counseling nursing women. As a IBCLC, I am here to support you and your goals while provide evidence based information along the way. Questions about new theories in lactation? I have probably watched a webinar about it. Staying up to date on new information is very important to me.
All 5 of our children were born at home, so I understand the uniqueness of home birth situations. In my personal life I am a accomplished ultra runner, having run races from 5ks to 100 miles. Working with women who are returning to running while breastfeeding is a special interest of mine.
