Still committed to helping mothers achieve success in their breastfeeding goals… whatever they may be.
Breastfeeding Medicine combines lactation and medicine to meet the specific needs of families desiring to breastfeed. Over a 30 year journey participating in the explosion of varied levels of lactation support, families can be very confused as to what ‘help” they are actually getting. In a breastfeeding medicine practice families can be assured of the highest quality of care as I take a whole family approach to your baby’s well-being. You will receive comprehensive support for complex and joyful breastfeeding.
Families are emotionally and physically exhausted and rightfully concerned about their milk supply, their baby’s growth, disposition, and their own ability to painlessly nourish their baby. This evidence-based center builds on both tried-and-true methods coupled with the latest research to untangle a feeding problem, help identify the parents’ goals and empower them to nourish and nurture their babies. A thorough assessment is performed based on the history of mom and baby which may include an infant oral exam to evaluate for tongue restrictions and the myriad of other oral structure and functional issues that may be interfering with breastfeeding.
Creating a Healthier Community by Helping Mothers Breastfeed Their Babies: Since 1988!
Although breastfeeding is portrayed as natural and mother-infant feeding seems intuitive, it is not culturally normal, instead, it is a learned behavior that can require guidance, confidence-building and fine-tuning. Robin’s lactation practice grew out of a strong desire to understand the science underlying breastfeeding and lactation in an effort to find solutions for her clients’ difficulties. With Breastfeeding Medicine, parents like you will be provided with expert guidance, skills, and information in meeting your breastfeeding goals. Each family is unique, and you will be worked with closely to develop a customized plan that will transform your breastfeeding experience and ultimately, your lifelong bond. Your complete assessment and recommendations are available after an appointment under appointment notes in your MyChart, NOT in an after-visit summary as I do not chart when we are together.
