There are many situations in which one might decide to hire a lactation consultant. Some of these are:
Low birth weight
Baby having difficulty gaining weight
Low milk supply
Tongue or lip tie issues (anterior and posterior ankyloglossia)
Pain, Sore nipples
Difficult labor and birth
Assuring baby is getting enough milk
Mother is returning to work and needs help pumping
As an IBCLC I recognize normal breastfeeding and abnormal conditions affecting the breastfeeding mother, baby and their relationship.
I will collaborate with your medical providers.
I can help identify options that will fit your family dynamics.
