LACTATION COUNSELING 

Lactation can be a complex biophysical process that requires guidance, patience, perseverance and on-going support. In order to figure out how to best feed your baby comfortably and confidently, I offer Lactation Counseling sessions. I begin by discussing your feeding goals and how to go about meeting them. No matter what those goals may be, I will be right beside you, encouraging you if you encounter challenges, including physical, emotional and situational. 

AS A LACTATION COUNSELOR, I AIM TO PROVIDE THE FOLLOWING SERVICES, UPON REQUEST AND AS TIME PERMITS:

  • Offer guidance and support for pregnant people and new parents regarding lactation and nursing.

  • Conduct comprehensive assessment of parent and baby related to lactation and nursing.

  • Develop a care plan specific to the needs identified through assessment and counseling.

  • Assess the needs of parents and babies who are at risk or currently experiencing lactation difficulties.

  • Provide referrals to other providers as needed or requested.

    For more information or to set up a consultation, please contact me.

Bilen helped our family with emergency overnight postpartum support when my daughter was itty bitty. The second Bilen walked in the door I felt at ease. Her peaceful and confident presence helped me get through a tough two weeks. She was a huge part of my recovery.
