Why Counseling

As a lactation counselor, postpartum doula, parent advocate, and newborn care provider, Amanda is able to provide preventative counseling to the new parent and offer solutions to anyone figuring out how/when/what to feed their infants. Amanda's support is nonjudgmental; she provides consultations for breastfeeding mothers, chestfeeding families, and those using bottles/nipple shields/pumps/SNS systems/etc. to their advantage. 

What a visit can look like:

  • Discussing options for feeding infants prior to birth to create a custom plan for the home

  • Assessing position and latch for breastfeeding families

  • Finding solutions when there are lactation challenges

  • Sourcing support and providing referrals to additional local resources (support groups, professionals, and more)

  • Evaluating dietary needs for a healthy lactation experience

  • Examining formula and bottle choices to meet your baby's needs

  • Walking through how to safely prepare formula powder and maximize nutrient intake

  • Working on a schedule that works for baby and the whole family

  • Introducing the bottle to a primarily breastfed baby

  • Finding donor milk to supplement your baby
