Gather into our circle of support. People who are well supported have greater success meeting their breastfeeding goals—let’s be there for each other. Share what it’s been like for you, what you are needing and what you have learned. Tap into your intuition, trust yourself, your body, and your baby. We support you in finding the infant feeding methods that work best for your family.

Several of our doulas are also lactation or breastfeeding counselors and can offer prenatal breastfeeding classes or postpartum support to help you troubleshoot those early days of nursing your baby. We are currently offering virtual lactation support. Please contact us to learn more and for help!
