As a Certified Lactation Educator & Counselor (CLEC), I will join you in your home to assess and address the most common challenges that come up with early breastfeeding.
In additional to being a CLEC, I am currently working towards the IBLCE certification for lactation consultants. I recently completed the lactation consultant program through The University of California, San Diego where I supported 300+ breastfeeding mothers in the outpatient clinic at Kaiser San Francisco. I am scheduled to take the IBLCE exam in October of 2019.

Baby's position & latch
Nursing a sleepy or fussy baby
Nursing with over-supply (too much milk)
Nursing with low-supply (too little milk)
A baby struggling with weight gain
Nursing after breast augmentation or reduction
