Breastfeeding Support

Breastfeeding is one of the most natural and beneficial acts a mother can do for her child.  Dramatic health benefits have been proven to pass from mother to child through breast milk.   From antibodies which protect an infant at birth...to the exclusive nutrients in mother's milk which have been shown to prevent a number of childhood diseases...the benefits are incalculable.  There is no other single action by which a mother can so impact the present and future health of her baby.

In-home breastfeeding services:

Nourishing your baby is an intimate matter, but it can be a tricky one to approach alone. Whether it's your first baby or your fourth, I can help you achieve the breastfeeding experience you want.

I am a Certified Lactation Specialist based in Elon and I provide in-home breastfeeding support to nursing moms in the Triad area, including Alamance & Guilford counties. Following a free 15 minute phone consultation, I will visit you at home and help you to create the bond between you and your child that you will both always remember for the rest of your lives. My fee to visit you at home is $75 and includes up to 90 minutes of breastfeeding support. and $55/hr afterward.

In addition, I also offer ONLINE consultations. If you have a laptop with a webcam, we can meet online via Skype. My fee for a Skype consultation is $25 for 30 minutes. 

Perfect nutrition for your baby:

There is not a more perfect food for your baby than your breast milk. Breast milk contains just the right balance of proteins, fats, vitamins and carbohydrates to help your baby grow into a healthy child.

It also protects against illness and infection, lessens the chance of your child becoming overweight and helps establish a close emotional bond between you and your newborn.

That's why the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends babies drink breast milk exclusively for the first six months of life and for at least the first year as she begins to eat solid food.

Breastfeeding is best because it:

  • Provides the best nutrition for your baby. Breast milk contains live cells; it has proteins, calcium and iron that your baby can more easily digest than in formula or cow's milk. It also has fats that are essential to your baby's brain, nervous system and visual development, as well as key vitamins (A, C, D, E and K).
  • Helps develop a close bond between you and your baby. Scientists think the loving interaction between a mother and her baby helps newborns learn to socialize and decreases their risk of despair and failure to thrive.
  • Decreases risk of your child becoming overweight. One theory for this is that breastfed infants may better control the amount of milk they consume because they rely on internal hunger cues to eat rather than external cues to finish eating.
  • Helps protect against illness and disease. Breast milk contains antibodies that help reduce the chance of common childhood illnesses, such as diarrhea and ear infections. Breastfed babies also have lower rates of diabetes, sudden infant death syndrome, allergies and asthma when compared with bottle-fed babies.
  • Is beneficial to moms. Breastfeeding reduces your risk of breast and ovarian cancers.
