Let's Prepare you for
Setting the Foundation...
For some, a baby is born using all of it's natural reflexes to nurse, and they can latch with little assistance right off the hop.
Other times, and more often than not it takes some time to learn the dance of breastfeeding.
I can support and educate you so you are prepared to understand the foundation of making milk, to preparing you to troubleshoot when/if things become difficult for you and your baby.
"More often than not, when a baby is having difficulty latching on it is because they can't. Let me help you find out why". I offer a fully loaded prenatal consult where I will spend time with you and your partner (if desired) going through different nursing positions and so much more.
