What’s Your Feeding Goal?

Historically lactation consultants have worked with families on breast feeding, with the majority of the attention on the mother, and speech therapists target bottle feeding with a primary focus of the infant. As a dual credentialed IBCLC and SLP, I am able to come alongside a dyad and support both.

As a speech therapist with 15+ years of experience including NICU and outpatient infant feeding, I understand the infant’s role in the dyad. I have helped pre-term infants successfully feed with and without NG tubes. As a mom, I understand the pressures of “just wanting to feed my child.” I come to the table with a unique perspective on how to utilize all the tools and options to help an infant grow and develop to the full extent of their potential. I enjoy working closely with your child’s team of doulas, midwives, pediatricians, dietitians, ENTs, gastroenterologists and pediatric dentists.

When I work with a family assisting on infant feeding, I understand the time demands that this precious life is going to eat every three hours, even on weekends. As I am able, I am available to my patients for support beyond the 9-5 hours of a typical clinic setting. I invest in your journey and can’t wait to hear of your family’s success.
