Lactation Support Services

It is not uncommon for issues to arise after you have been discharged from your doctor or midwives' care. That is where I can help you with an array of issues including, but not limited to:

  • finding an effective and comfortable latch;

  • increase milk flow;

  • decrease pain;

  • weight gain;

  • milk expression;

  • supplementing;

  • weaning/transitioning back to work; and,

  • managing supply (whether high or low).

I work with two experienced and International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLCs), Roxanna Farnsworth and Shahrzad Tayebi. We are available at Family Center Therapeutics http://vanfct.com/lactation-support/ for group clinic and private clinic appointments as well as in-home visits in Vancouver, North/West Vancouver, Burnaby, Richmond, and the Tri-Cities area. Cost per visit depends on location (clinic or in-home and group or private). Receipts are provided and can be claimed with some extended health benefit programs.

My background and experience as a postpartum doula and parent can also help answer your questions about diapers, baby wearing, common health issues, soothing your fussy baby, transitioning back to work, self-care to nourishing meals. All provided with calm and caring attention to your families' individual needs.
