Breastfeeding

Most new mothers, and some not so new, need support and guidance with breastfeeding after the birth of a baby. Whether it's help finding a comfortable latch and position, concerns about milk supply, need for review, or just wanting a better experience, a visit with an IBCLC is invaluable. My years of experience include hospital and clinic work, education and private counseling. I've been a Board Certified Lactation Consultant since 2009, and I'm passionate about helping mothers with breastfeeding and I'm lucky enough to serve hundreds of families per year. My current clinical experience includes Telehealth, office visits, and classes, including infant massage and tummy time. Aetna, Independence Blue Cross, and Amerihealth NJ insurance are accepted. and we provide billing help for clients out of network.

Lactation Visits

During a typical visit we will work on achieving an optimal latch that is both comfortable for you, and effective for your baby. We will discuss any relevant medical history, thoroughly exam of baby's oral anatomy, as well as your breast anatomy. Using a specially calibrated scale enables me to weigh your baby before and after a feed so that we can see exactly how much milk your baby is transferring. I'll also teach you how to find comfortable positions, relaxation techniques, how to keep track of diapers, and what is "normal" newborn and infant behavior, so you'll know what to expect and what to look for.  Your questions and concerns are of the utmost importance, and we always do our best to answer all of them.

Because your pediatrician has literally no breastfeeding education. Midwives and doulas have a little bit, but the key word is "little". There is something called a "CLC" or Certified Lactation Counselor, meaning "I took a cool class one weekend at The Radisson". You get what I'm saying, right? When you need your teeth taken care of you go to the dentist, not the allergist. IBCLCs get thousands of hours of education and training. When you need help with breastfeeding, hire the professional that is the best for the job. Go for the gold standard!
