Lactation Counseling

Informative and Compassionate
$60 per session

As a certified lactation counselor, I help with latch, positioning, and answer any questions or address any issues you may have so that you can meet your breastfeeding goals. 
 I'll take a full history so you can tell me why you need my support, what concerns you have, anything in your health or birth that may be relevant, anything health professionals have suggested, weight gain etc. I'll use this to get a better picture of what is going on.
* I'll ask to see the baby nurse. This is actually the most important part of the consultation. It can be a good idea to try to feed baby an hour or two before the consultation time so they will be able to persuaded to feed. Of course, babies run the show so I just go with the flow and move the appointment along accordingly based on what baby needs. You can choose any position in which you are comfortable. I may suggest some other positions you can try. You can also ask to try some different positions! 

*I watch baby latch, I'll give you some tips on how to make the latch better if we need to.

*I'll talk to you about what to look for, how to tell baby is feeding well, newborn baby behavior, what to expect in the next few weeks, how to move towards exclusive breastfeeding if you are supplementing, how to incorporate different feeding tools you may need.  

* I will discuss referral to other services, if necessary .
Some mothers choose to do a prenatal appointment before baby is born to discuss concerns if this is her first baby or if she had difficulty breastfeeding other children.

Bengkung Belly Binding

Postpartum Healing

Postpartum belly binding has many benefits in supporting the new mother's recovery.  Each binding session will include a warming paste, belly panel, and white cotton wrap with instructions to the mother and partner. Dyed wraps may be used for an additional charge. Wrapping done before 3 weeks has the best results. Cesarean mothers should wait 4-6 weeks, or until their incision has healed and they are cleared by their care provider.

Placenta Encapsulation

Informative and Compassionate

Placentophagy is the mammalian act of consuming your placenta after childbirth. I certified as a placenta encapsulation specialist in 2019.  I have a separate area in my home for placenta prepararion. I typically prepare and gently steam the placenta using the TCM method. It is is then dehydrated, subsequently ground up and encapsulated in vegetarian size 0 capsules.  The amount varies from person to person, but a single placenta will typically yield 80-120 capsules. I also provide a complimentary placenta print and umbilical cord keepsake. Items such as placenta tincture (highly recommended!) or salve is available for an additional charge. Please contact me for more information about placenta encapsulation.
Mothers have reported experiencing the following benefits from consuming their encapsulated or tinctured placenta:


- Increased Energy

-Increased Milk Supply

-Uterine Involution (going from pregnancy state to non-pregnancy state in a short time-frame)

-Reduce Bleeding

-Increase Healing

-help with PPD/PPA

-Hormone Balance & Restoration
