Warm,  evidence-based counseling and education in the comfort of your home. 

Serving families in SF, East Bay, and Marin.


Getting educated about breastfeeding before birth is a gift to yourself and your family. Breastfeeding is a natural act that requires intentional education, practice, and support. This prenatal consult is tailored to you and your family and takes place in the comfort of your home. 

You will learn about:

  • what to expect in the early weeks
  • maintaining milk supply
  • position, latch, and biological nurturing
  • common concerns and complications
  • pumping and returning to work
  • ...anything else you want to know.

I use visual aids and videos to support your learning and provide resources for you to take home. To schedule a prenatal breastfeeding consult,  email me with your contact information and preferred days and times. Group class inquiries are welcome (3 families per class maximum).

  • Ask Me Anything Prenatal Consult: 2-hour in-home consult, $150

IN-HOME Lactation Counseling

Common reasons for seeking lactation counseling include latch issues, sore nipples, breast pain, supply issues, supplementation/feeding plans, and pumping. Please email me with your contact information, age of your baby, and reason for consult. I offer a complimentary phone triage if your case is complicated, in which case I may refer you to a more advanced practice IBCLC. 

  • In-home visits: $125 initial visit, $65 follow up visits

  • Phone consults: $30 per half-hour

Once upon a time I was an industrial designer in Brooklyn, NY. After a decade of making all kinds of neat things, and then a big move to SF,  my first daughter was born at home. Our midwives' compassionate, high-quality care was refreshing--a respectful approach that honors the life-changing nature of pregnancy, birth, and parenting. I was blown away...into a new career in midwifery and lactation!

I became a Lactation Educator Counselor (CLEC) through UC San Diego in 2012. My second daughter was born at home in 2013, again with outstanding midwifery care. In 2015, I enrolled in the National College of Midwifery's CPM (Certified Professional Midwife)  program under the clinical supervision of  Cynthia Banks, RN, MSN, CNM. I will complete UC San Diego's IBCLC (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant) program in May 2017 and sit for the IBLCE board exam in October 2017.

You can reach me by phone, email, text, or simply use  the form to the right. Be sure to include your name, city where you live, and type of service you need. I look forward to hearing from you!
