Lactation Consulting

Lactation Consulting

Roxanna is an IBCLC with more than 120 hours of lactation specific education (read more about what an IBCLC is: Impact of Breastfeeding).

The nursing relationship is ever evolving and concerns can pop up at any time. Roxanna offers Group Drop Ins and private consultations to determine the best way to support your continued nursing journey. After a full history, an infant oral assessment and breast assessment, Roxanna will observe a feeding. She gathers information needed to support proper latching and positioning. The end result is a feeding plan that works for the whole family. All of Roxanna’s support includes follow up to make sure the plan is effective and sustainable via email.

Concerns for support could include:

  • Issues with latch, nipple or breast pain
  • Slow weight gain
  • Supply issues (low supply or oversupply)
  • Pumping and feeding expressed milk (or supplement)
  • Recurrent plugged ducts, mastitis
