(certified Lactation Educator)
Arranged either prenatally or on an as needed basis
Support can be arranged either prenatally or once baby/babies arrive. If prenatally we will meet once before baby arrives to discuss your breastfeeding goals and wishes. I am a certified lactation educator and will spend time teaching you about the benefits of breastfeeding, what you can expect the first days and weeks, the logistics of breastfeeding and the possible challenges you may encounter.
If baby is already here and you are experienced some challenges I will come to you and help you in the comfort of your own home. My consultation will last between 1-3 hours.

Support before and during childbirth
We will meet prenatally 1-2 times to discuss your wishes and preferences for your birth as well as to talk about what a typical birth will be like and what sort of things you can expect. I will be available by phone, e-mail or text support whenever you need and will be on-call for two weeks before your due date until after your baby arrives. Once you feel you are in labour we will stay in contact and mutually decide when extra support is needed. I will join you at home or in the hospital to offer any support you need and will then stay with you for approximately 1-2 hours after the birth of your baby. I will visit you within 1 week after baby arrives to answer any questions and to assist with any breastfeeding or baby care needs.
