Over the past 14 years, mothers have often asked me during a visit to stay for the night or do an overnight visit.

Back then, due to my husband’s shift schedule and having a baby and young children at home, I was unable to offer this valuable service. Until NOW.

As of May 1st, I am offering a 24 hrs in-home lactation support from 11 am until the following day 11 am. This dedicated service encompasses that I come to your home and help and support you with breastfeeding. I will be there for every single feeding during this time which can be anywhere from 6-15 times to help you with breastfeeding, to overcome any challenges and, most importantly, to gain confidence in latching your baby and set you off to a wonderful, empowering journey. If you are experiencing any kind of challenges such as that the baby is not latching on, sore nipples, frequent feedings, need to supplement your baby etc., then I will be there to help you overcome those challenges at every feeding during this 24 hour period.

Imagine this: It is 2:30 in the morning. You are exhausted and sleep deprived. Your baby has just woken up, and you missed the early cues so now s/he is crying and totally frustrated. You are trying to get into a comfortable feeding position but you are in pain and discomfort from giving birth. Imagine there would be no need to worry about anything because your lactation consultant is right there with you, listening in through the baby monitor and ready to help you in any way possible. Your feeding time will be shorter, and you and baby can go back to sleep much sooner giving you more of a chance to rest in-between the feedings.

This service is limited, and it is on a first-come-first-serve-basis due to its length. Even though my babies are no longer babies šŸ˜¢ I still need to make life arrangements. I am looking forward to providing this dedicated service to the mothers in need as an important step toward an empowering breastfeeding experience
