Birth Doula and Lactation Services
Recommended by: Erin Robbins
Description: As a Birth doula I provide support you through the birth you choose whether it be in a hospital, birth center, or home and vaginal or cesarean. Navigating birth with support not only creates a wonderful birth experience, but also empowers you to make the decisions that best align with you. Every birther is having natural childbirth before their epidural, so whether you are planning natural childbirth or you are definitely having an epidural, having the tools and support will lower your chances of having a surgical birth! You are the expert of your own body and baby, I am here to empower and guide you via comfort measures and physical support, emotional support and encouragement, and informational support and advocacy. Lactation/ Baby feeding support is for anyone looking for extra help and support with feeding your newborn. As a breastfeeding specialist, I provide clinical breastfeeding counseling and management to help families who are thinking about breastfeeding or who have questions or difficulties during your newborn feeding journey. Whether you are having issues with milk supply, latching difficulties, experiencing a breast infection, or just want to make sure you're doing everything correctly, I provide a full consultation scheduled around your baby's feeding schedule. I work with you providing guidance and assurance, which make the process as relaxing as possible by helping with methods for making sure you and your child are able to regularly, comfortably, and successfully breastfeed or bottle-feed while maintaining the important parent-infant bond with one another.
