Happy New Year! And with the new year I have, after much thought, adjusted my rates. It was not an easy decision as I want my services to be accessible to any family who needs me. But as before, I will not let finances be a barrier for those who need help . Please talk with me if you want to learn more.

I Am Not a Human Pacifier

Many mothers are told "Don't let you baby use you for a pacifier." This post does a great job of explaining the flaw with that logic. Babies nurse for many reasons other than food, and none are wrong. http://nurshable.com/2012/05/04/i-am-not-a-human-pacifier/

Dear Daughter, You are three weeks old. You nursed pretty much straight through the night last night, as I sort of drifted in and out of being fully awake. You're going through a growth spurt. When...

Our Story

I have had an interest in breastfeeding since becoming a mother in 1998, going on to nurse all 4 of my children. I began to help families in 2001 as a volunteer Leader with La Leche League International, a role I continue to enjoy. I worked for 2 years as Breastfeeding Peer Counselor with the Rock Island County Health Department. Then in 2011 I became an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant or IBCLC. IBCLCs are allied health professionals specializing in the clinical management of breastfeeding. IBCLCs must have accumulated many clinical hours in breastfeeding counseling, as well as breastfeeding education. We continue this education to further our learning and continue our certification. In 2018 I completed a Holistic Lacation program. I have experience working with babies of all ages, and a wide range of breastfeeding issues from milk supply, soreness, latch and positioning, weight gain concerns, twins and tandem feeding, IGT, getting baby back to the breast. I have a special interest and focus on infant oral anatomy and ankyloglossia (tongue ties).
