I’m Bethany, Lactation Counselor and Postpartum Doula. But more important than my certifications, I am a fellow breastfeeding mother who has experienced the ups and downs that come along with any breastfeeding journey.

When it comes to breastfeeding, I am confident that I can help just about any mama with the issue at hand.

My online consults go back to when I was breastfeeding my first and needed help. As a first time mom, the last thing I wanted to do was drag my newborn out of the house more than I already had to, but I needed help with lactation, I needed support. The other thing I needed was more than 10 minutes in someone’s office, after dragging my baby out, to be told that the pain would probably pass. I needed someone to see the big picture, someone to walk with me each step of the way…and that just wasn’t possible with the lactation services I was using.

So, that’s when I knew it was time for me to to do what I needed to to be able to help mother’s like me that were in need but silently suffering because there didn’t seem to be anyone that could help.

That’s why I developed the consults that I have, all of which can be done from the comfort of your own home, without having to drag baby out or worry about them getting upset, hungry, etc.

        There was nothing too embarrassing, stupid, or petty that I felt I couldn’t ask Bethany.  She always made me feel like what I was experiencing was 100% normal!  She encouraged me to do one thing – keep loving my baby and being a good Mama.  She never told me how I “should” do something.  She let me know her thoughts without making me feel like it was law.  I can honestly say that Bethany is one of the key motivators for helping me meet my breastfeeding goal for my son.

        FAQs

        • q-iconCan a consult be successful without being seen in an office?

          Yes! In fact, most consults are based more on hearing your story and understanding the big picture to get a real grasp on what is going on. When it comes to a latch assessment, we can see everything we need to via a video chat like skype.

        • q-iconHow will I know what to show you when we are on a video call?

          I will walk you through step by step. Sometimes these calls are easiest on a phone because you can easily move the phone and show me what I need to see. There is nothing to be self conscious about and you shouldn’t feel exposed. No video will ever be recorded. This method is becoming widely popular to get mothers the help they need without having to cause a major disruption to their day.

        • q-iconWhat if baby doesn’t cooperate?

          That’s easy..we can talk through as much as we can and if we need to reschedule we will!

        • q-iconHow does an e-mail consult work?

          An e-mail consult is actually the most popular type of consult because it allows mothers to reach out when they can and keep me up to do throughout the journey. When you purchase an email consult, you will get 2 weeks beginning with the initial email AFTER you complete the initial survey and I respond with some pointed questions. For those two weeks you can email me as much as you want, I will respond your emails at least once per day. Less than a 24 hour turn around time can be expected with emails.

        • q-iconWhat can an e-mail consult focus on?

          It can focus on pretty much anything. If you think you are having a latch issue, I don’t recommend e-mail, but I will work with you however you want the best I can. E-mail consults are hugely successful when it comes to supply, transitions to bottles or other feeding methods, working through plugged ducts and weaning strategies. It all depends on what you are most comfortable with!
