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 consultants come to your home and do a thorough intake and assessment of everything that’s going on to get to the root cause of feeding difficulties. They’ll provide you with a comprehensive plan that helps you meet your feeding goals.
