You just want to snuggle with your baby.
That’s why I come to you.

Evidence-based breastfeeding / chestfeeding services in Manhattan and NYC
You just brought your baby home—why make another office visit? I’ll come to you.
During a home visit for breastfeeding/chestfeeding support, I will do the following:
Obtain a HIPAA compliant consent form that we both sign for consent for the home visit
Take a full health history of the feeding parent and the baby
Observe the baby feeding at the breast/chest, bottle, or both
Provide a physical assessment of the breast/chest and of the baby's oral cavity
Provide latching and positioning assistance
Weigh the baby with a specialized weighted scale for pre and post feeding weights
Provide a follow up plan of care after the home visit specifically for your family’s needs that will also be made available to your health care providers so everyone can work as a team
Provide you with a Superbill (medical receipt) at the end of the visit and after you pay me that you can submit to your insurance company for possible reimbursement
Work as an advocate and resource for your family as you proceed along your breastfeeding/chestfeeding journey
You will find me to be non-judgmental and accepting of who you are and what you want for your family!
Every new family I meet reminds me of how wonderful it is to live in a city like New York where there are so many different kinds of families to enjoy!
I’m open to all gender and sexual identities, whether you are a breastfeeding parent, a chestfeeding parent, or an exclusively pumping parent
I love learning about your cultural traditions and finding out what values are most important to your family.
I am trained and experienced to help with all kinds of infant to child feeding concerns.
I can assist on any other topic or issue that is relevant to you or your baby to help achieve your breastfeeding/chestfeeding goals, including:
low or abundant milk supply
tongue and lip ties (TOTs)
poor weight gain in baby
plugged ducts, mastitis
at breast/chest supplementers
