As your Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), it's my job is to support you, and your breastfeeding goals!

 

I'm non-judgmental, and I always provide personalized, compassionate care. As a Los Angeles-based, double-certified IBCLC with hospital, clinic, and private practice experience - I'm also providing trusted, evidence-based care. I want you to feel very cared for, to leave with all of your feeding questions answered, and to feel comfortable with our plan. 

Usually I can see families for lactation consultations covered under their medical insurance. 

 

All lactation consultations are private, and take place on a locked, HIPAA-compliant video platform. (Are you curious about how virtual consults are different from in-person consults? Go here to learn more!) 

Consults typically take 60 minutes. In your consult, I'll take a medical history and we'll discuss your breastfeeding challenges and questions. After the consult, I'll provide you with a written plan of care.

 

I'm always available for questions and follow-up.
