Essential Lactation Support
Because support is essential.
After 10 years of Pediatric hospital experience, I longed for true "work life balance". I heard over and over again from parents of babies admitted to hospital "I wish I had met you before, and we wouldn't be here". I thought maybe they were on to something. If the community offered better support, maybe we could Prevent more hospital admissions. Maybe I could help families where I live. Maybe I could travel more meaningfully and not commute 30 miles one way to work. I could be that change.
Having recently added a baby to our family, I know the trauma of leaving the house with an infant all too well. Planning, and packing up, and feeding in advance, and a feeding plan just in case, and wearing something flattering with easy access for feeding, and the car seat, and peeing before you go, and where is the stroller, and now where are the keys..... So I thought, I should go to where the babies are. Show me the chair you feed your baby in. Show me how you position your own pillows. Show me how your toddler interrupts you and how you have to carry your baby from room to room while feeding. Stay in your comfort zone, and don't worry- you can't forget anything this way! I can offer you the best assistance if I can really understand your day to day life. And I won't waste any of your time.
A yankee transplant, I have made a home in Georgia with my husband, two children, and our tiny dog.In my spare time I love to read, dance, and swim, bike and run. I love my work, and I am so fortunate to spend time with families and their new babies. I have always relied on my village when it comes to my kids, and I would love to be a part of your village too.
