Proactive Parenting Breastfeeding Support

Breastfeeding Support

Breastfeeding has many health benefits for you and your baby but pain, discomfort, and slow weight gain for baby may make breastfeeding feel overwhelmingly difficult. We tend to think that nursing will be easy and intuitive but for most first-time moms, and sometimes even for experienced moms, it is extremely challenging.

If you find yourself having trouble nursing, do yourself and your baby a favor. Before you give up, see me for a lactation consultation. In nearly all cases, I can teach you how to continue nursing comfortably for as long as you and baby wish.

I have worked with nursing mothers for nearly 20 years as a certified pediatric nurse practitioner. During that time, I have helped moms prepare for breastfeeding, helped new moms in the hospital, provided home visits to improve breastfeeding technique, and problem solved thousands of issues during office visits.

Good preparation and timely support when issues arise is often the difference between having a fulfilling breastfeeding experience or being filled with fear and discomfort before giving up. Please come see me to help you with the following topics:

  • Prenatal counseling about the factors that may affect breastfeeding and lactation.
  • Infant positioning and latch-on.
  • Information about practices that promote successful breastfeeding and milk production.
  • Preventing and managing common concerns such as poor latch, inadequate milk supply, nipple or breast pain, and calming a fussy baby.
  • Milk expression (pumping) and storage for parents who must be separated from their babies.
  • Strategies for breastfeeding and lactation after returning to work.
  • Breastfeeding and lactation in challenging situations, such as feeding twins, a premature or sick infant, or infants with special needs.
