Providing healthcare services for you and your baby since 1983

Breastfeeding help is available!  You are not alone. 

Since 1983 I have helped thousands of women and babies to successfully breastfeed.  As both a lactation consultant and a CranioSacral Therapist, I am in a unique position to help you.  I am often the person that other lactation consultants refer to when they are unable to resolve their patients' breastfeeding issues.

Some of the ways I can help:

Educating you about breastfeeding during your pregnancy

Building your confidence

Offering emotional support

Teaching you latching and positioning techniques

Preventing and treating sore nipples and breasts

Supporting your milk supply

Ensuring adequate infant weight gain

Teaching you how to read your baby's body language and feeding cues

Helping you with a fussy baby

Increasing the efficiency of your feedings

Showing you how to express/pump your milk

Offering guidance for working mothers

Supporting you in balancing breastfeeding with the rest of your life

What past clients have to say:

"My son turns 1 on Sunday - I can't believe it! I just wanted to thank you again for helping me breastfeed him. He loves nursing.  After all of the trouble we had at the beginning, I'm so pleased that we were able to nurse for the whole year." CK

"Today was my daughter's 6 month birthday. She's over 18 pounds now, and still exclusively breastfed.  Every time she hits a new milestone, I think about you and how grateful I am for all of your help and support. I can't imagine where she and our family would be if you hadn't been there to save us."  AG

"Ellen, I am thankful that I met you -- your continued support and helpful expert-knowledge means more to our family than words can say!  My son and I are doing great!  He has an amazing immune system and has not gotten sick even though I've been through 3 bad colds!"  NG

"Thank you, thank you, thank you!  My son is now eating in a way that is a million times better for both of us! For the first time, I actually feel I can continue this for the next year!  Thank you for your priceless advice and recommendations, Ellen! You've made such a positive difference in our lives." CR

"Ellen, I wanted to let you know that I'm exclusively nursing both girls as of 5 1/2 weeks!  The girls are pooping and peeing and growing. They are 8 weeks old as of today.  I wanted to thank you again for your support and encouragement.  You convinced me that I could nurse twins!  I DO make enough milk...." DW
