Babies don't come with instruction manuals. Sometimes it takes mom and baby a while to flow together.

Your baby is not:
a "good" baby
a "bad" baby
Babies don't know they're not part of their parent's body until they are 3 months old. They need to be held a lot so they feel safe.
They need to eat
8-12x/day and sometimes more!
Some babies have had a rough start b/c of their position in the womb. They need to stretch out and move more, so they can feel better in their skin.
Some babies really have feeding challenges that make eating difficult.
We are in favor of helping babies get their needs met.
We're here to help.

Also offering Birth Story Healing Sessions
Our Birth Story Healing sessions can be helpful for anyone at any particular point on the parenting journey. Whether you are struggling with fear about your upcoming birth, are searching for peace with your previous birth story, or if you've experienced a miscarriage or infant loss, healing can happen.
Using deep mindful listening skills, paired with a mind-body technique called Focusing, Lorraine one of our IBCLC practitioners can help you bring presence to difficult emotions. Together we can create a space for life’s forward movement to occur.
Share and Heal your birth and/or parenting story in the comfort of your own home – at this time all sessions are offered through Zoom.
While Focusing is therapeutic, it is not therapy. It can be a wonderful stand-alone modality for healing and/or it can be a helpful adjunct to those who are already in therapy.
Go to focusing.org for more info about what focusing is.
Pricing for initial "birth story healing" (not lactation) 90-minute session is $120 and $70 for follow-up sessions.
