Do you have questions about feeding your baby?
Perhaps you

need to know:

  • how do I know my baby is getting enough milk?

  • how do I increase my supply?

  • why is my baby gassy?

  • why does breastfeeding hurt?

  • is my baby allergic to my milk (no, probably not).

  • why is my baby fussy?

  • why does my baby have colic?

  • does my baby have a lip or tongue tie?

  • is my baby constipated?

  • how do I use my pump?

  • does my flange fit?

  • what bottle do I need?

  • how long can you store breastmilk?

  • how do I feed twins (triplets)?

About

Hi! I'm Rachel, and I'm an IBCLC.

I'm a mother to 4 awesome kids, wife to the mailman, and I've been working with mothers, babies, and families to support them in breastfeeding since 2013.

With more than 10 years in both public and private education, I'm super passionate about educating parents on what to expect and how to best prepare for feeding their babies in a way that makes sense for them.

"Rachel is AMAZING and I would HIGHLY recommend! She is extremely knowledgeable about breast feeding/pumping/and all things associated! I went from having high stress and anxiety regarding feeding my 2 day old to NO stress because of the help I got from her. She was very quick to respond when I called and understood the importance of making a visit happen quickly due to my baby not latching. She is very personable during her visits and makes everything so easy to understand. She’s also more than happy to answer the millions of questions my husband and I had for her."

"I recently had an in home consult with Rachel and I knew within the first few minutes of speaking with her she takes her job seriously. She took an extremely detailed history and allowed me to address all of my concerns. Rachel is very knowledgeable on more than just breastfeeding; she also provided insight on our issue of possible food allergy/intolerances. Her interaction with my son was great as well. She thoroughly examined his mouth, as well as our latch while explaining everything she was looking for along with her findings. I think she’s a great provider and I’m so happy with our visit. I would recommend her to anyone having any issues on their breastfeeding journey."

"Rachel was a blessing to me, and truly saved my breastfeeding journey. I was nervous to breastfeed my second child after having a difficult experience with my first. Rachel helped me prepare by building my confidence and giving me lots of information. She helped after my baby was born tremendously. I highly recommend her; she is incredibly knowledgeable and supportive!"
