Postpartum Breastfeeding Support
Wether your baby is newly born, weeks or months old a visit from a lactation consultant can save your breastfeeding relationship.
Breastfeeding should never be painful. I specialize in perfecting the latch in the newborn period. A well latched newborn ensures breastfeeding success for the entire duration that you choose to nurse your baby.
In addition to assessing and treating the basics of breastfeeding, I also specialize in:
- establishing and increasing breastmilk supply
- breastfeeding a premature baby
- nursing twins and multiples
- breastfeeding after breast surgery
- adoptive nursing and inducing lactation
- inducing re-lactation after a period of not breastfeeding
- exclusive pumping
- identifying and recommending treatment for mastitis, yeast or breast infection

The initial visit is 1-2hrs and includes a thorough history of your pregnancy and birth as well as any existing medical concerns. All visits include a physical assessment of both mom and baby as well as a thorough breastfeeding assessment from beginning to end. You will receive a detailed plan of care for your breastfeeding baby and ongoing email support. We will discuss the need to book a follow up visit to evaluate your baby's growth and ensure your ongoing breastfeeding comfort.
A follow up visit is a great way to boost your confidence. The follow up visit is approximately 60mins and includes a physical assessment of both mom and baby as well as a thorough breastfeeding assessment from beginning to end. This is a great opportunity to evaluate our original plan of care and determine if changes need to be made.
A travel fee of $75-$125 (depending on location) for families requesting a home visit outside the town of Cochrane will be applied. Clinic appointments are available on Wednesday's at The Nest Chiropractic and Wellness Studio between 11-2pm for families who wish to avoid this travel fee.
A full receipt for coverage under extended benefit plans will be provided. Coverage will depend on your provider. If coverage is essential, I encourage you to contact your provider prior to booking an appointment.
I believe that all mothers should have access to a Lactation Consultant. If finances are a concern for you please contact me for payment options.
