You Want Personalized Lactation Support?! You Got It!
At Enlightened Mama, you will receive lactation support unlike any other. Our team includes both International Board-Certified Lactation Consultants and Lactation Educator Counselors, and someone from our team can come see you in our office or to you to work through your breastfeeding woes, typically within 12-24 hours. With our vast experience and knowledge, in addition to the fact that we are all birth doulas, as well as parents, you are going to get the most thorough, compassionate, and personalized care available, as we all understand the deep emotional relationship between the family and the feeding experience.
Got a lactation situation? Liz, Gigi, and Madolynn are here to help! As IBCLCs (Internationally Board Certified Lactation Consultants) we are highly trained in managing any issues you may have while breastfeeding–from positioning & latching techniques, to difficulties such as sore/damaged nipples, tongue and lip tie, supply concerns, infant weight issues, disorganized suck patterns (breast and bottle), pre-term babies, mastitis, thrush, plugged ducts, breastfeeding after reduction, multiples, and more- we’ve got you covered! We pride ourselves in being “breast detectives,” often solving the mysteries and problems that others have not been able to.
Beginning your breastfeeding journey and wanting some guidance ? Our Lactation Educator Counselors, Laura and Jen, will help you to get comfortable, ease your mind, and work through early challenges with things such as sore nipples and engorgement, as well as offering up informational support far beyond what Google can provide. (And if more assistance is needed, rest assured they will be referring to our IBCLCs.) And remember…our top priorities when we are supporting families in their breastfeeding journey, however that may look for the individual, regardless of interventions and tools being used, no matter how long the duration of breastfeeding…
1. Feed your baby.
2. Feel sane.
3. Enjoy your baby.
