Breastfeeding Care          Lactation Function         Postpartum Recovery 

It is so nice to meet you...

My name is Eileen. I am a Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) and have been passionately educating & counseling families for over 10 years.   

 

I believe in ethical, nonjudgemental, inclusive care regardless of circumstances, race, ethnicity, gender identity, spiritual or religious beliefs. 

If you are reading this, you've probably decided that you need a little help feeding your little one.  While breastfeeding is biologically normal, there are many  ways to nurture & feed your babies. 

 

So, why work with a lactation consultant?  

 

Seeking lactation health care from an experienced IBCLC can not only result in better feeding outcomes, but also nurtures and supports the postpartum family with a special focus on the mother & baby couplet. Learn more here about working with a lactation consultant.

Whether you are dealing with more common breast/chest feeding issues or more complex lactation and feeding difficulties, I examine the whole picture when creating a plan of care that works for your family.  

I practice compassionate, current, evidence-based clinical care and believe in creating a safe, nurturing space for you to learn and feel confident with your new baby.

"Words cannot express the gratitude we feel for the comfort and support you provided during one of the most vulnerable and challenging times in our lives. Allowing us to talk out our options with you, always making us feel like what we chose would be the right choice for us."

Hannah M.

"Thank you, thank you, thank you, we are all so grateful for your indespensible help. I felt a huge sense of relief as we were both securely in your care. You are truly amazing at what you do. Gifted at listening to women and working hard to problem solve the very surprisingly complicated task of putting baby to breast. Even though my path was wrought with complications, you always made me feel confident, competent and bonded with my babe."
