International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) & Postpartum Doula in Athens, AL
No more having to get out with your baby! I'll come to you.
Prenatal Breastfeeding Package
Caring for a newborn is a full-time job, even if everything goes smoothly. Sometimes every mother could use some help. I will come to your home during pregnancy and do a full assessment and history. Some education about your particular situation and the impact the birth could have will take place. After birth, two visits either to hospital or home are included where I do an assessment of baby and how breastfeeding is going. I bring a sensitive baby scale, free product samples, and many common breastfeeding tools (such as nipple shields) for purchase. Unlimited email/phone follow-ups included.
Breastfeeding is the best way to feed your baby, but new mothers often have questions and get conflicting advice. Sometimes problems may come up weeks or months into your breastfeeding relationship. That's why I provide services to the Athens/Huntsville area. I have become an IBCLC (the highest credential in the breastfeeding consultant career) in order to better serve my clients. My goal is to help you on this parenting journey with education and support for your choices. As a trained Herbalist, I can also help with deciding which natural remedies can support you. An exam and educational support session usually takes 2 hours. Packages for longer-term support as a postpartum doula are also available for lower rates, just contact me for pricing. $25/hour
