CNC Lactation Support & Classes

Original Baby Breastfeeding

Breastfeeding is more than just a way to feed your baby.  It’s a relationship between you and your baby with many different emotions.  As a Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC)*, my role is to support you in reaching your own unique breastfeeding goals - whether you want to nurse for 2 weeks, 2 months, or 2 years.  There are no hard and fast rules for what breastfeeding should look like.  You are the expert when it comes to your baby.  We will work together to come up with an individualized plan that works for you both.  I provide expertise and experience, as well as emotional support and encouragement to boost your breastfeeding self-confidence.  CLCs are often the only member of the healthcare team whose primary focus is on maintaining the breastfeeding relationship, so I serve as a breastfeeding advocate for you and your baby too.

*The Certified Lactation Counselor certification is the premier National Certification in Lactation Management for the United States.  The CLC certification is awarded by The Academy of Lactation Policy and Practice. CLCs are members of the healthcare team who can provide knowledge and counseling about optimal and suboptimal breastfeeding. CLCs are dedicated to the promotion, protection, and support of breastfeeding and human lactation in their work to prevent and solve breastfeeding problems. They understand that breastfeeding works best when it is the cultural norm.  CLCs work within a counseling model, understanding that breastfeeding decisions are made by the parent, and working to help her to reach her own unique breastfeeding goals.
