Feeding your baby can feel overwhelming. We know how it feels to expect something to come naturally and be disappointed or guilty when you have bumps along the road. The lactation consultants at Your Downtown Doula have supported hundreds of families to meet their breastfeeding/chestfeeding goals. 

Are you tired of:

  • In pain with every latch?
  • Supplementing or topping up and not sure how to boost your supply?

It’s hard to find caring non-judgmental feeding support. Your Downtown Doula’s naturopathic doctor and international board certified Toronto lactation consultant is here to support you regardless of your feeding goals. She provides a whole family approach to breastfeeding/chestfeeding.

Dr. Sarah Winward

At Your Downtown Doula, we know that you’re the kind of parent who wants the very best for your children, and you’ve learned that human milk is the best thing for babies. So, naturally, you’re doing your best to breastfeed/chestfeed your baby. The problem is that you’re running into conflicting advice. Maybe you’ve been told that your latch looks good even though you’re having pain. Maybe you’ve been told to supplement but you don’t know how to stop or how to adjust as your baby gets older. Mostly, you feel like your concerns aren’t being heard. We understand, it’s hard to know how to make the best choices. That’s why we are committed to providing care specific to your needs. Our lactation consultant comes to your home and does a thorough intake and assessment of everything that’s going on to get to the root cause of feeding difficulties. She’ll provide you with a comprehensive plan that helps you meet your feeding goals.
