Feel the difference in breastfeeding support at Baby Nest. Our IBCLC Certified Lactation Specialist supports all families and situations in their breastfeeding journey. We understand each family has their own unique and individual needs and we meet them right where they are at. We believe that with professional support and a heart full of patience and care, most breastfeeding challenges can be overcome.

Here are some reasons to need a lactation visit:

  • You are experiencing pain
  • You or another care provider is concerned about your baby’s weight
  • You have been asked to provide supplemental feedings
  • You are worried about your milk supply
  • You experienced challenges with a previous baby
  • You want someone to assess for “tongue-tie”
  • You are “triple feeding” (feeding at the breast, pumping and bottle feeding)
  • You feel like you are feeding your baby around the clock
  • Your baby is acting gassy or colicky
  • You would like assurance that everything is going well
  • You are overwhelmed, tired, and unsure if you’re breastfeeding the right way
  • You would like support with weaning
  • You want to feel loved, supported and heard in your breastfeeding and postpartum experience

    During this visit you will discuss any risk factors that might interfere with breastfeeding, which includes a breast exam to assess glandular tissue for future milk production. A one-on-one consult to talk about questions or concerns you have and make a tentative breastfeeding plan for after baby is born.

    What Lactation Services Look Like with Emily

    When I am with a lactation client, my goal is to make things easier, more comfortable and sustainable. I want to empower parents to breastfeed their babies with confidence, with the goal for them to be able to replicate the work we do together when I am not there.

    When needed I provide more intervention, detailed care plans and sometimes I take it easy and meet a short term goal. I make these practical decisions based on my clients individual learning styles, emotional state and basic needs met or unmet.

    More specifically though, I am passionate about working with families with babies that are having oral restrictions (like “tongue-tie”), or other complications that are making breastfeeding challenging.

    I always bring empathy and respect during these vulnerable times and listen carefully to the entire story. I am skilled at prioritizing my care plans so that they are manageable for the sleep-deprived families.

    What Our Parents are Saying

    “I thought I had breastfeeding all figured out..until my third child! Emily came to my home and put my mind at ease by weighing my babe, checking his latch, and giving me invaluable information and resources to help me up my supply. She is the best!” – CR

    “Upon the birth of our little boy we were in need of a lactation specialist and knew Emily would be the perfect person to help us through the challenges we were facing. Our son was born 3 weeks early and needed a little extra help to figure things out. Emily’s patience and knowledge was what I needed to stick through it. Thanks to her we are successfully breastfeeding! Emily, thank you for all you’ve done to help us!”         -B.S.

    “Emily is also our lactation consultant. She helped us change some of our breastfeeding practices to make it more comfortable and efficient. She was so gentle with our son and provided clear, helpful answers to our questions. We loved it! Emily is wonderful professional and we highly recommend her.”   -PB
