Lactation Consultations

Breastfeeding can facilitate a beautiful and joyful experience between a parent and a baby. But that doesn’t mean it always comes naturally.

What happens when things don’t go according to plan? Breastfeeding can bring with it challenges, and not just in the ways that we expected. Cracked and bleeding nipples, painful breast infections, concerns about milk supply, anxiety about your baby getting enough… It is enough to derail even the best laid plans.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. There are solutions out there, and even ways to prevent most of these issues.

When feeding doesn’t go the way you planned, schedule a home visit through Doulas of Shanghai. Our lactation counselor is certified through the University of California – San Diego, and a consultation will leave you feeling calmer, and more self-assured in your feeding relationship with your baby.

We are prepared to talk through your feeding plan and help establish a system of feeding that works for you, while answering any other questions you have about feeding along the way.

We are excited to work with you to establish your infant feeding plan either before or after baby’s arrival, and offer nonjudgmental support of the feeding choices that are best for you and your family.

We offer the following feeding support and more:

-Supporting feeding beliefs/philosophies
