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 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.
