Your Personal Breastfeeding Guide

Breastfeeding is natural, but it can be a learning experience for mom and baby. I'm here to make that experience enjoyable, teaching the art and science of breastfeeding.

Teaching the art and science of breastfeeding.

As a Registered Nurse (RN) and an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), I bring experienced, informed and personal help to your home in the Greater Lansing area.

Here's what you can expect during your 2 hour visit. 

Service Fee between $150 and $175 

Assessment

I will do a full health history and physical assessment including examination of your breasts and the baby. I will also discuss your pregnancy history and your labor and delivery.

 

Talk and Teach

I will observe one to two feedings and address any breastfeeding concerns that you might have. I also bring devices to help with specific breastfeeding challenges. 

Provide a Plan

I'll prepare a custom care plan to help you achieve your breastfeeding goals with confidence. You may also contact me after the visit with additional questions or concerns at no additional charge.

"As a first time mom I struggled with breastfeeding. Tina came to my home and really took her time with me. She showed me different techniques, answered all of my questions, and developed a feeding plan for me. I instantly connected with her and felt like she was part of the family! Throughout my struggles she was there to offer support and guidance. Now, nursing is part of our daily routine and Baby T is happy and thriving!" - First Time Mom

"When we decided to try for kids, we had no ideas it would take us almost 5 years to get pregnant with our first. After he was born, I was determined to breast feed. After my little guy was having significant weight issues, it was determined I was having a supply problem and was referred to Tina. I didn't know what to expect but from the moment I called she put me right at ease, listened carefully to the issues I was having, and scheduled a time to come and help me. She came out more than once to help with the nursing progress and weigh my son. She was so encouraging. Eventually my milk came in after several weeks. Tina was there the whole time and was always just a text or call away. I successfully nursed my son for over a year. We had a daughter two years later and while I had no nursing issues with her, I still reached out to Tina with questions and just to send pictures of the kids. I affectionately call her "best LC ever" in every text and refer her to everyone I can. I don't know what I would have done without you, Tina-best LC EVER!" - First Time Mom
