I am a Certified Breastfeeding Counselor and a passionate supporter of moms and babies. I serve Brooklyn, Manhattan and Queens families in reaching their breastfeeding goals with evidence based practice, nurturing guidance and encouragement. The care I provide is is tailored to each mother and babies unique situation and needs that they can meet their breastfeeding goals in a joyful and workable way. I live in Brooklyn, with my husband, two kids and an overabundance of books.
Within my work I incorporate the approach of Gestalt Breastfeeding, as well as a variety of other tools to help you problem solve and negotiate any potential issues. I strive to provide a nurturing environment in which parents feel informed, confident and respected as they begin or continue their breastfeeding journey. Fundamentally, I strongly believe in the incredible ability of mothers and their babies to work together and nourish one another.
I completed my Certification as a Breastfeeding Counselor with Lea Rivera (IBCLC) at Birthday Presence. I have a lifetime of watching my mother Dr Pamela Douglas (MD, IBCLC) work and I was a passionate member and supporter of Le Leche League while breastfeeding my own son for 2 years.
