“Good beginnings make a positive difference in the world, so it is worth our while to provide the best possible care for mothers and babies throughout this extraordinarily influential part of life.” - Ina May Gaskin

The breastfeeding experience comes with a unique set of challenges for each woman. I will work with you to find a plan of care that feels manageable and is supportive of your goals, whatever they may be.  

Some Reasons to call an IBCLC:

  • Painful, injured nipples
  • Under supply/Over Supply
  • Baby isn't gaining weight  
  • Baby spits up and seems to struggle at the breast
  • Frequent plugged ducts/mastitis
  • Returning to work
  • And many more

How it works:

We talk on the phone prior to the in-person consultation to assess what your needs and options are. 

Office Visits are at my office in Atwater Village.  We will spend 1.5-2 hours together where I will take a full medical history, conduct a breast and newborn exam, watch a feeding, and develop a plan of care that feels reasonable and sustainable for you and your family.  You will have access to me for one week after the appointment for phone and text follow up and we will adjust the plan as needed.  I will provide you with a written plan of care as well as a superbill for you to submit to insurance for reimbursement.  Fee: $160

Home Visits lasts 1.5-2 hours and in that time I will take a full medical history, conduct a breast and newborn exam, watch a feeding, and develop a plan of care that feels reasonable and sustainable for you and your family. You will have access to me for one week after the appointment for phone and text follow up and we will adjust the plan as needed. I will provide you with a written plan of care as well as a superbill for you to submit to insurance for reimbursement.  Fee: $220

Phone Consult is an option for mom's who have general questions or follow up needs that don't require a weight check, or visual exam of any kind (breast or baby) to assess issues.  Topics commonly covered: returning to work strategies, pumping questions, introducing solid foods.  I can provide you a superbill to submit to insurance for reimbursement.  Fee: $50/30 mins

Clinic visits at the Del Mar Birth Center in South Pasadena are an option for older babies (2 weeks+) who need a latch tune up, or for mom's who have been having chronic issues that need some trouble shooting.  These visits are 45 minutes and do not include phone/text follow up, but you will receive a superbill to submit to insurance for reimbursement.  You can call the birth center directly to schedule an appointment on Thursdays between 1:30pm-5:30pm: 626-577-2229.  Fee: $85

In person follow up is available to anyone I have seen for an initial consult.  Fee: In-office: $100, In-home: $125


I also offer private prenatal breastfeeding classes. I will come to your home and we will spend 1-2 hours answering your specific questions and preparing you for the process.  

Private Breastfeeding Class: $65/hour
