I have worked in maternal-child nursing since 1986, exclusively in lactation since 2007, and have been an IBCLC certified lactation consultant since 2009. I have had extensive experience helping moms initiate breastfeeding and in solving complex feeding issues. My approach is professional, gentle, and thorough. I have a deep knowledge base to draw from as I have worked in each of the hospital maternal - child arenas and home health care. I am comfortable with a wide variety of feeding difficulties.
I am ready to give you breast feeding support prenatally, after birth, and through weaning.
I am an expert in addressing common and unique feeding issues.
I have experience working with term babies, premies, NICU grads, and babies facing health challenges.
You, baby and I work together as a team with other providers as needed to make feeding issues better.
I can help you in your home, or in my office.
My goal is to stay connected with you so that you can meet your breast feeding goals.
"You are a breastfeeding genius."
"Mary was a fabulous gift to us as mommy and baby. She came in and gave us the tools to get my little guy to eat, gain weight and become a happy, healthy, thriving little man. I would HIGHLY recommend her for new and experienced mommies alike."
"Thank you so much for helping us with breastfeeding. Nikola is now 17 days old and is thriving because of the encouraging, sweet help you gave us. I don't think we would be successful without your help."
"Out of all the lactation consultants we worked with you were by far the most patient, helpful and knowledgeable. You are awesome!"
"I just wanted to say thank you for all your help and guidance during our first few weeks with little Ava. Your help was so valuable, and with your help we've been truly successful. We all are grateful... especially Ava!"
"I can't thank you enough for all your help and time!! Your knowledge, resources, understanding, and compassion have been invaluable! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!"
