Lactation

Let's talk about it ALL during your personalized lactation visit.

Latch, positioning, pumping, engorgement, weight gain, sleep, nipple pain, oral ties etc.

One size does not fit all with feeding your baby so let’s get comfortable and identify your dyad’s unique needs.

 

Birth Twin Cities meets you where you’re at with warm and down to earth support. During this session we play detective to get to the root matter in order to resolve any issues.

 

We love collaboration with other providers and modalities... especially if your needs extend past one session.

 

The hope is that you leave with confidence, options and clear next steps so that you can thrive during this season of life with a young baby.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is your lactation training?

Outside of being a mom of 4 and dealing with hard lactation issues such as oversupply, clogged ducts, tongue ties, colic babies, milk blebs, vasospams etc, I began my formal lactation training in 2016. In 2018 I became a CLEC. 2019 I started working with Enlightened Mama and in Spring 2022 I became a lactation intern at Twin Cities Birth Center. I will be sitting for the IBCLC exam in 2023. Continuing education is incredibly important to me as the evidence based information is continuously evolving each year- that’s why you may hear slightly different suggestions from me vs the clinic or hospital lactation professional you first encountered. 

 

How long is a session?

Sessions typically are 60-90 minutes. It may be longer depending on what’s going on with you or if you add on CST to the appointment.

What is followup like?

I will send a summary visit with availability for text and email support for quick questions. In person or virtual follow-up visits are recommended when there’s indicators for continued support.

 

Are you one of those “breast is best” people? 

Absolutely not. I am one of those “informed is best,” “supported is best,” “mentally healthy parents is best” people. There are so many variables that go into each family’s feeding situation. One size does not fit all. Which is why each consult is an unique appointment to go over YOU, YOUR BABY and YOUR FAMILY’S personalized needs. 

What is your mask policy?

I wear masks to appointments when requested but I do NOT require clients to mask. However, if you're sick, please let me know so that we can discuss options for your visit/reschedule.

 

Do you accept insurance/how can I pay?

Birth Twin Cities does not accept insurance at this time, however we can send a receipt of services rendered. Many families have success paying with HSA or FSA. Birth Twin Cities accepts cash, check, card, Zelle, Venmo, Paypal, or Cash App.
