New Family Doula, LLC
In Home Lactation Consultant
The early days with your new baby can be challenging especially if you are breastfeeding.
I have been a Board Certified Lactation Consultant for over 19 years. I can help you develop your breastfeeding skills.
Breastfeeding is like dancing - both partners know the steps but still have to learn how to make those steps work in harmony. I can be that lactation help.
Whether this is your first baby or your fifth I can give you hands-on personal in-home lactation support to help you establish your breastfeeding relationship.
Unlike most of the lactation resources in the Richmond area, I will come to your home to help with breastfeeding.
For most families in-home breastfeeding help enables mom and baby to work in their own environment, on their own time schedule without the need to pack up baby and equipment and travel for help.
Studies show that women who have breastfeeding support in the early weeks go on to successfully breastfed for a year or more.
If you choose not to breast feed I will support whichever feeding method you prefer. I can help with pumped breast milk, donated breast milk or formula from a bottle.
