Breastfeeding may be natural, but that doesn't me it's always easy. Contact our Certified Breastfeeding Specialist (CBS) with your questions or concerns today!

Hello! I am the Certified Breastfeeding Specialist (CBS) here at Flat River Doulas.

I'm sure you're wondering what a CBS is and that's ok! There are so many acronyms for Lactation Professionals that it can get confusing. My credential specifically means I have 95+ Hours of Lactation Specific training through Lactation Education Resources(LER). I became certified in 2019 and since then I have been primarily teaching breastfeeding classes and doing in-home consults. I'm excited to start offering my new Prenatal Consults in-office as well as my Welcome Home Consults safely in-home. 

 

​Personally, I have exclusively breastfed 6 kids for different durations; ranging between 11 months and 19 months. I have simultaneously experienced various breastfeeding conditions including but not limited to: exclusively breastfeeding twins, plugged ducts, milk bleb, mastitis, pumping, shallow latch tethered oral ties (tongue, lip, and buccal). ​

How can I help you?

That is a great question! Your needs and breastfeeding goals are my desire. I want to give you the breastfeeding support you need in order for both you and your baby to thrive.  Each mother-baby unit is unique. You deserve individualized care that looks right for you and your baby.

 

While we are together, I will assess feeding at the breast and/or with the bottle, milk supply, weight gain and milk transfer, latching, and everything between.  We will look for underlying causes of problems and develop a plan to address what you are experiencing.  You will receive a care plan that is specific to you and your baby.

I can help you and your baby with a wide range of issues, including:

  • Weight Gain Concerns

  • Positioning and Latching

  • Low Supply

  • Oversupply

  • Clogs, Engorgement & Mastitis

  • Nipple or Breast Pain

  • Cluster Feeding

  • Returning to Work or School

  • Breastfeeding Multiples

  • Tandem Feeding

  • Exclusive Pumping​

  • Weaning

  • Introducing Solids
