Breastfeeding, while instinctual and natural, doesn’t always run smoothly for everyone.  At The Nesting Place we want to ensure that you feel equipped with knowledge, tools, and confidence before your baby arrives.  We also want you to feel supported if you are experiencing feeding challenges after your little one is born.

We can help before or after baby arrives

During your private prenatal consultation we will go over information to get you off to the best start possible.  We will talk about breastfeeding basics including latching, feeding management, and how to know your baby is getting enough.  Your personal history and any major questions or concerns will also be discussed. At your private postnatal consultation we will discuss the breastfeeding concerns that you are working through, go over a brief health history of you and your infant, observe a feeding, and create a plan to ensure things move in the right direction for you. This visit may also include an acupuncture session for you (mom) to help promote relaxation and reduce any muscle tension, and promote milk flow and supply if those are concerns you are working through.
