"Breast/chestfeeding is an unsentimental
metaphor for how love works.
You don't decide how much and how deeply to love —
you respond to the beloved,
and give with joy
exactly as much as they want."
- Marni Jackson
Feeding your baby is natural, but it often does not come easily. With time, patience and instruction, most nursing pairs find success in a mutually rewarding experience. Support and education can be key to getting that relationship off to a good start and smoothing any bumps in your road.
I offer breast/chesting education, support, and troubleshooting for people in the greater Pittsburgh area and beyond!
In our work together, I will observe you feeding your baby and discuss your concerns. I will provide information for improving your nursing relationship and help you develop strategies to achieve your lactation goals.
